Keeping Pores Unclogged

Here's what we have to say about congestion. Having a congested skin can often be referred to clogged pores, and the cause of most acne problem. Clogged pores are clinically called comedones, or blackheads (open comedones) and whiteheads (close comedones).

Unfortunately, comedones are something most of experience thanks to the skin's constant sebum production and cell turnover. But there are a few things you can do:-

1. Proper skin care routine. Choose products that are non-comedogenic and free from:-

• Lanolin: A fatty substance obtains from sheep’s wool. It has moisturizing properties, but pore clogging capabilities as well.
• Fragrance: Artificial fragrance contributes to acne infections.
• Mineral Oil: This oil has been shown to cause pore clogging and exacerbate acne

StepsRemarks
1. Double Cleanser Always remember to use a makeup remover to remove all makeup. Use face wash designed for oily or combination skin, pat dry the skin gently without vigorous rubbing. Avoid over drying cleanser with SLS (sodium laurel sulfate).
2. Serum Use sebum control serum to get rid of excessive sebum. Always look for product that is able to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, anti bacterial or anti inflammation. Common use ingredients include resorcinol, vitamin A and its derivatives, BHA, witch hazel, potassium azelaoyl diglycinate, male fern root extract and etc.
3. Moisturizer Hydrate the skin well, it is best to use a gel based moisturizer rather a creamy / rich moisturizer.
4. Exfoliation Use a grainy exfoliant or deep pore cleansing scrub masque to remove the dead skin cells.
5. Sun Protection Choose a light weight sun protection with at least SPF 15 and PA++.
6. Make-up Keep makeup as light as possible. Oil free foundation or makeup products will be a good option.

 

2. Do not squeeze the comedones which may further irritate the skin and possibly damage the skin tissue.

3. Limit the use of bloater. Overuse of bloater giving the sebaceous glands wrong information of skin dryness and causing excessive sebum secretion.

4. Promote a healthy lifestyle
• Lessen the pressure of life
• Regular exercise helps flush out toxins in our body.
• Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.
• Get sufficient and quality sleep for 8 hours
