Getting Rid of Clogged Pores and Blackheads


No matter how old you are, clogged pores and blackheads can be a problem. Blackheads frequently appear on the nose, where pores can be larger and more difficult to clean. In addition, the nose is part of the t-zone, an area that is prone to excess oil production. Other common areas include the cheeks and chin.

Want to get rid of blackheads? Follow these tips:

Step one: Use strips. You know those pore strips they sell at your local drugstore? Pick up a couple of boxes, because they’re the easiest way to get rid of blackheads. It’s all about instant gratification! These strips pull them out, but are only effective on those that they can adhere to. This is normally newly formed ones rather than those that are older and firmly embedded.

Step two: Exfoliate.
Exfoliation is a great way to deep clean your skin, clearing out anything that clogs your pores. Incorporate exfoliation into your at-home skincare regimen, doing it up to three times a week if your skin can handle it. Once in a while, it’s also a good idea to get an in-office peel. Think of a peel as a super exfoliator.

Step three: Slather on a clay mask.
A clay mask, left on for 10-15 minutes, is another way to really deep clean those pores. You can also try overnight masks. The benefit of these is that your pores widen as you sleep, allowing the mask to get deeper into work their magic.
