How to Get Clear Pores
Dead skin cells, bacteria, and sebum are the culprits that clog pores and make them red and swollen. Clogged pores are a nuisance. Your first impulse may be to squeeze them, but that is a bad idea as it can push the clog further into the pore and cause infection. Proper skin care techniques will unclog pores and give your face a glowing appearance without causing further harm.
Exfoliate your skin daily to scrub out pore blockages. Exfoliating will slough off the dead skin cells and gently coax pore blockage out into the open and off the skin. Do not exfoliate with harsh ingredients or more than once a day or you may irritate your skin, leading to more problems.
Apply a pore-refining mask once a week to minimize pores and clear blockage. Apply the mask as directed and leave it on your skin for up to 15 minutes. Some masks require that you peel them off while others allow for you to wash them off with warm water and a gentle facial cleanser.
Drink plenty of water. Eight to ten glasses of water per day will help to remove toxins from your skin and to unclog pores while adding needed moisture.
Moisturize your skin after cleansing using an alpha hydroxy-based moisturizer. Alpha hydroxy acids deep clean pores and help shrink them, eliminating clogs while also killing harmful bacteria on the surface of the skin.
Go to your fridge for a natural facial mask. Mash up three to four strawberries and mix with 3 to 4 tablespoons of honey. Apply the mixture to your skin and allow it to set for 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat your face dry with a towel.
