One of the most frequent issues that concern all of us when it comes to our face care (but also of our body in general), is our pores. It is something we see both on our “bare” skin and when we apply our makeup. Pores are present in all skin types without exception but depending on various factors, they become clogged, shrink or dilate.
That is why it is very important to know some basic facts about the pores on our skin and more specifically we will look at the issue of blocked pores that concerns many of us.
What are blocked pores?
The pores on our skin and especially on our face become clogged when dead cells, oil or impurities get trapped inside them. Pores are tiny openings in our skin that release oil and sweat. When our pores become clogged, we are likely to develop acne afterwards.
What causes our pores to clog?
Our pores become clogged as a result of various factors. Some common factors are the following:
- Oily skin that produces a lot of sebum
- Accumulation of dead skin cells and various residues such as makeup
- Products such as cleansers, lotions and makeup that do not respect our skin – comedogenic
- Hormonal reasons
- Genetic factors
What can we do and how can we properly take care of our skin?
#No1 Always make sure you wash your skin well both in the morning and at night, and don’t leave any residue from dirt and makeup that can easily clog your pores.
You can try the The Toning Cleansing Gel, that has a natural antiseptic effect and deeply cleanses the skin due to the rich antioxidant herbs it contains. It is ideal for skin with excess oiliness.
#No2 Choose non- comedogenic products that respect your skin and won’t clog your pores. All our products are non- comedogenic to ensure that they work in the best and most pure possible way on your skin.
#Νο3 Don’t overdo it with face exfoliation. Choose products that are not too harsh on your skin and pay attention to the frequency of exfoliation. It is best to do it once or twice a week, depending on the needs of your skin. It’s also very important to watch the pressure you put on your skin so you don’t cause damage rather than helping your pores clear.
#No4 Try our new product, The Regenerating Moisturizing Gel, which has a thin liquid texture, is quickly absorbed by the skin and one of its main benefits is that it helps unclog our pores. It is ideal for combination and oily skin, as well as acne-prone skin.
