Clogged pores can give you whiteheads, blackheads, or an array of acne across your body and face.Both physically painful and unattractive, clogged pores can make you feel almost instantly unattractive.  If you have clogged pores and would like to get rid of them but don’t know how, read this article to learn more.

 

1. Steam Your Skin

One of the easiest and most effective ways to unclog your pores is to steam your skin. By steaming your skin you can help to open your pores and cause them to clear up without having to poke or prod them. Simply take a tea kettle and boil water in it. Once boiled, place the hot water in your plugged up bathroom sink and place your face close to the water. As the steam rises around your face, you will feel your skin start to tighten and your pores start to open up. Keep your head in the steam for as long as it lasts— repeat as necessary.

 

2. Face Masks

Another great way to get rid of your clogged pores is to use a clay face mask. When shopping for a face mask look for one that has charcoal in it. Charcoal is a natural substance that is effective at clearing out your pores. When applying a face mask, make sure to apply it to clean skin and let it sit on your skin for around 5-10 minutes or until it has dried. To take off the face mask use a warm damp cloth.

 

3. Face Scrubs

Face scrubs can be used around 2-3 times per week to help exfoliate your skin and unclog your pores. Derived from ingredients like salt and sugar, face scrubs work to clean out your pores and get rid of blackheads— leaving you with smoother and cleaner skin. Just make sure to only use the scrub a few times a week so that you don’t strip your face of its natural oils, which will actually lead to things like acne breakouts.

As you can see there are several ways that you can unclog your pores from the comfort of your own home. By using the correct skin care products you can help to restore your skin. To learn more, contact Cosmetic Surgery of NY.
