Please excuse the less than pleasant title but there really is no pretty way to sugar coat the topic of clogged pores! Having oily skin (I apologise if you are sick to the back teeth of hearing about my oily woes) my pores have a tendency to clog and as a result become enlarged.
Now I'm not going to feed you lies and tell you that there is a quick fix or a way of forever ridding yourself
of such hindrances because if there is I've yet to stumble across it.
What I can share is a few products that have helped improve my pore situation ten fold!
On no she's mentioning Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel, well that's right buddy I am!
I accredit Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel for helping clear my skin of excess sebum and flushing my pores on a daily basis, preventing other pores for becoming clogged.
I really do wish that I had snapped before and after images of skin since switching to this cleanser
as the results would impress any doubting Thomas's alas I didn't so you only have my word.
Essentially what I'm saying is find a great cleanser (non-foaming) and stick with it,
not rocket since no but something I wish I had done a long, long time ago - ditch those cleansing wipes, foaming cleansers and thank me later...says Captain Obvious.
How many posts have you read about Origins Clear Improvement Mask ?
Countless I'm guessing, well that is because it really does work.
Like most before applying this mask for the first time I was ever the sceptic as so far most pore aimed products have been full of empty promises.
However I can assure that this really does clear enlarged pores and in turn tightens them too so they appear smaller. I can also imagine this to be great for those who have issues with blackheads.
If you are looking for a quick, immediate deep cleanse for pesky pores pick this up ASAP!
Oh pore strips how I love thee.
I love peeling you off and looking at all the gunk you extract, sometimes staring and analysing it longer than anyone ever should but why deny yourself of a little fun...well if you can call it that?
So yes pore stripes those little cotton patches of grip on to dirt, grime and cleanse deeply to unclog blocked pores instantly and remove blackheads.
I will use any pore strip brand at a push but I do prefer Biore particularly the Deep Cleansing variety
which are great for stubborn blockages (eww I know.)
Whack one on, sit back and let it work it's magic, novel yet effective what more could you want from a beauty product?
Do you have any must have pore products I should add to my arsenal?
