While acne and blemishes are a frequent issue, one of the even more common skin problems involves clogged pores. And, what makes these even more difficult to remedy is that they are somewhere in between clear skin and acne. Have no fear, though, we’ve done our research and found some great “tried and true” clogged pore home remedies for you.
What Causes Clogged Pores?
While you’ve likely never thought about it, pores are actually one of the mechanisms by which your body stays clean and healthy. But, let’s be honest, the stuff that comes out of (or gets stuck in) your pores seems anything but clean. The pores are actually located above sebaceous glands that secret oil. The oil functions like glue to collect and hold together dead skin. However, when these glands expel dead skin cells, build-up often occurs and causes clogged pores. Additional factors such as makeup, pollution, and hormones can contribute to the clogging of the pores.
Hi, i have no remedies to suggest but i do have a question. My facial pores are quite large and prominent. Because of this, my pores get clogged very quickly - especially after i go for a morning walk. Although i have tried many cleansers, my skin is still slightly clogged and is not able to breath so my face is still not refreshed after cleansing. In addition to this the clogged skin results in pimples all over and oily skin. After much experience with cleansing cosmetics i am now looking for a natural solution to these problems. Any ideas, guys? One more question, is it true that cucumber is cooling and cleansing to the skin.
Btw, one thing i know is that its gr8 for getting rid of facial from acne and vice versa... Well, i'll be awaiting an answer! Love you guys at EC .... :)
