You’re taking care of your skin and drinking plenty of water, yet the pores on your nose are still clogged. Sometimes all of the exfoliating and washing of our faces doesn’t seem to be enough. It’s important to know why our pores get clogged in the first place. Our skin produces a Sebum, which is an oily mixture that’s actually good for the skin. It keeps it healthy and feeling soft. It can however become a problem when dead skin cells attach to the sebum and clog your pores. This usually happens to those of us with oilier skin, but it can also happen when you apply lotion to your face. Our faces our more sensitive than the rest of our bodies and can’t handle the thickness of lotions. Applying a light moisturizer or serum can prevent clogged pores. Touching our faces too much and sweating can also clog pores.
Don’t freak out there is something you can do at home to unclog those bad boys. I love using Biore’s Nose Strips. The strips are placed on your nose and dampened with water. After 10 to 15 minutes you remove it and will be amazed by the results. You can actually see the dirt and blackheads that have been removed from your nose on the strip. Continue this routine once or twice weekly and soon you’ll be seeing less and less gunk on the nose strips. Biore also makes the same type of strips for your forehead.
