The worst part is that clogged pores are not only present on the forehead at the nose area but also checks. The pores get filled with the natural skin and the layer of dead skin makes them look real bad. Also, with dirt and grease on these pores, they look uglier and gets black. This makes them visible enough that without clearing them, you won’t be able to get the glow and clearness required.

Cleansing:

You can use any branded cleanser and rub in on the area which has clogged pores. Gently massage the entire area for ten minutes and rinse it with cotton. While removing the cleanser, make sure you are using hard strokes on the area so that dead cells can be removed easily. Repeat the process twice a week, you won’t come across the same problem ever.

Use of Jojoba oil:

You can use other types of oils too but jojoba oil has some sort of specialty, and it is said that it produces the desired results instantly. When you clean the clogged pores with jojoba oil, it quickly gets into the pores and dissolves the entire dirt while cleaning the pores completely. Apart from this, the use of the jojoba oil is very essential for the skin.

Steam:

This process of cleaning the clogged pores is used mostly in the saloons. It requires you to first conduct a good massage on the entire face and then take steam for 5 minutes from any steamer. After that you can use the pore cleaning tool and get rid of all the blackheads and whiteheads. It’s a painful process, indeed, because the pressure exerted on the plucking tool hurt in the nose area specially.

The mentioned ones are the most commonly adopted ways of removing the dirt from the clogged pores. However, if you wash your face twice a day and use a mild cleanser daily, you won’t face this clogging issue. Also, you can use cotton dipped in milk for cleaning the face, this helps in providing freshness to the skin and also helps in enhancing the fairness. Also, try using those products which are oil-free, this would help you keep the face safe from the dust at least. Also, apply less makeup because it also leads to blocking the pores which results in dull and stiff skin.

    Hi Hira!
    As a mother , I find it hard to maintain a skin care routing. But I learned 2 useful tips: I clean my face after the shower, the steam in the shower works like the steaming process in the salons, this helps remove dirt from the pores faster.
    I also remove all makeup before going to sleep ( I am already not a big fan of foundation, making cleaning my face easier! ).

      Neutrogena has a nice scrub, and so does Burt’s bees. Before beginning to cleanse your skin, rinse with warm water for a minute, cleanse or scrub, then rinse with cold water to close your pores. Change your pillowcase once a week because oils can get on it, and could make it worse as you sleep. You could also make a sugar honey scrub. Hope this helps and good luck

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit
    the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I found this in my search for something relating to this.
