3 Ways to Cleanse Clogged Pores

People who have oily skin are more likely to have enlarged pores and open pores that are at a risk of getting clogged with oil, dirt and pollution. This can lead to blackheads, skin darkening, acne, zits and pimples.

Cleaning out the clogged pores should be a part of your daily skin care regime. Washing your face regularly with water and soap free face wash is a good idea. Remember, when you are washing your face you must lather your neck and chest as well. This helps to eliminate the oily build up and unclogs pores.


You must exfoliate your skin regularly as well. Use an apricot or almond face scrub and exfoliate the dead skin cells from your face and neck. Massage the scrub onto your skin for a few minutes but do not wash off the residue immediately. Wait for a few minutes then pat a few drops of water on your face; massage for a few more minutes and then wash it off. You will notice a visibly fairer skin tone with cleaner pores.
