Do you feel like your pores are front and center? Our skin is made up of pores, whether we like it or not. While it may seem as though some people don’t have any pores (because it looks like they don’t) we ALL have the same amount of pores in our skin. The difference is how clear and cleansed our pores are. Hopefully you’re in the habit of cleansing your skin on a daily basis, but with cleansing alone, you may not be getting that deep clean you desire or your pores really need. Before you get too frustrated, we have some tips for deep cleansing pores that will help you on your way to pores that look invisible as well.
Exfoliating the skin is a non-negotiable. It doesn’t matter what skin type you have, if you want to keep your skin healthy and get a true deep cleansing of your pores exfoliating needs to be a part of your regular skin care routine. The key factor in making exfoliating work for your deep cleansing routine is to exfoliate 2-3 times a week, but ensure that the process is gentle. You definitely shouldn’t be exfoliating more than the recommended 2-3 times per week as that can begin to be too rough on your skin. Additionally, using an exfoliating product that gives your skin that nice deep cleansing effect, but is also gentle on your skin is really where you get that beneficial deep cleansing benefit.
Use Quality Skin Care Products
Many people tend to get into the habit of using skin care products that are easy to get, or what they’ve just always used. The problem with that is they’re not always the best quality. Using quality skin care products is another non-negotiable for deep cleansing pores. When using products that aren’t of the highest quality it’s common for them not to provide the same deep, beneficial cleansing effect. Quality is a must when it comes to skin care. But it’s not just about using skin care products that are expensive and made with the best ingredients, it’s also important to ensure that the products you use are formulated to work with your skin type. When using skin care products that aren’t formulated for your skin type it’s common for the skin to almost ‘fight’ the products because they’re not catering to your skin’s true needs.
Head into the Spa
Getting a facial may seem like a luxury and something you do to get a little pampering, but they’re also incredible at helping to get a deep cleansing effect on your pores. It’s suggested to make it a point to head into the spa for a facial treatment at least once a month. Going to a professional, they can help eliminate any impurities and clogging that may be difficult to get rid of from at-home products. They’re able to give your skin a bit of a reset to focus on deep cleansing much more powerfully.
