Treatment for Clogged Pores
Clogged pores are an unsightly condition that can cause acne. They occur when oil and sweat clog up the hair follicles and sweat pores that are all over the skin. Clogged pore treatment is most common on the facial skin, where they affect the physical appearance the most. Many different clogged pore treatments are available.

Oil and sweat clog the pores throughout the day, and cleaning the skin morning and night is an effective treatment. It can also be a preventive measure to avoid the development of clogged pores. Washing your face thoroughly with warm water to open the pores before cleaning with a facial cleanser is a recommended part of your skin care routine.

Available in many beauty salons, a facial generally lasts an hour and thoroughly cleanses the skin, exfoliating away dead skin cells. The extraction of blackheads is also part of the process. Skin mask treatment is also included to leave the skin with a healthy and glowing final effect, and facial massage is also offered with some facials.
