As per the American Academy of Dermatology, lightly scrubbing the nose and face with a gentle facial cleanser twice a day is helpful in preventing nose acne in the long term. Ensure to rinse the area after washing.

Facial Cream

Salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide offer a powerful remedy for pimples. According to Mayo Clinic, using a facial cleanser or cream containing either of these two ingredients can be highly effective in acne treatment.
