Too many people with acne squeeze the pus out of blackheads, thinking that this removes the infection and allows them to heal. All this does is promote scarring at the site of the blackhead, creating more skin blemishes. After treating or removing blackheads, your skin must be thoroughly cleansed to prevent their return.
What Causes Clogged Pores?
Clogged pores are caused by a number of factors, including excess oil that gathers dirt, dead skin cells and bacteria. This accumulation can become worse as more dead skin cells pile up. Also, using the wrong facial products for your skin type can make things worse. If you have oily skin, for example, you do not need to add moisturizers or facial oils to your skincare routine.
Believe it or not, your own diet and hormones can also cause changes to your skin, causing debris and oil to proliferate and clog pores. If you have frequent problems with clogged pores, try avoiding dairy products and sugary treats, as these can cause your skin to become oily.
How to Treat Clogged Pores
Your skin needs a free flow of oxygen and to be clean to avoid bacteria buildup in the pores. Exfoliation is key if you struggle with clogged pores. Banish clogged pores with SENTÉ® Exfoliating Cleanser. This superior product contains a proprietary blend of phytic acid, glycolic acid and galactoarabinan that works to gently exfoliate your skin.
This exfoliating treatment is highly recommended by the team at Parsa MD for everyday use, as it generally causes only a mild irritation at the beginning. As pores become unclogged and skin is cleansed, you will notice the disappearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other skin blemishes, especially ugly blackheads. Plus, SENTÉ® Exfoliating Cleanser contains no oils or fragrances to clutter up your pores, and is dermatologist-tested for sensitive skin types.
