When combating clogged pores, you have to avoid strong actives if your skin is sensitive. Read on to find out how to unclog clogged pores gently and safely.

 

THE SURPRISING NATURE OF CLOGGED PORES

Clogged pores are pores that have been blocked by a mixture of sebum, dirt and dead skin. It is a common skin concern that may result in blackheads, whiteheads, and acne.

 

When your pores are clogged, they can appear larger and maybe even darker – looking like black dots on your face.

Clogged pores are common on people’s faces. However, they can occur anywhere on your body, including your scalp, neck, back, shoulders and chest.

 

If you can’t tell the difference between clogged pores and blackheads, fret not because they are all treated similarly.

 

FROM WHAT CAUSES DO PORES GET CONGESTED

A buildup of dead skin cells, oil or dirt can clog pores. Possible causes include: 

  • Oily skin due to age, hormones or genetics
  • Too much dead skin cells
  • Over-cleansing and over-exfoliating
  • Using comedogenic products

causes of clogged pores

The term ‘comedogenic’ means that it has a high likelihood of clogging the pores, subsequently leading to blemishes and blackheads

 

Oils, silicones and butters are usually examples of comedogenic ingredients. 

 

On one hand, they have excellent nourishing properties that can do wonders for dry skin without causing any blemishes. However, blemishes may arise if a highly comedogenic substance is used on oily skin. 

 

THE BAD SIDE EFFECTS OF POPULAR CLOGGED PORES TREATMENTS

You may have heard of using Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Beta-Hydroxy Acid (BHA) to clear up clogged pores. 

 

AHA/BHAs like glycolic acid, salicylic acid help to exfoliate and dissolve away dead skin cells and debris, minimising the appearance of pores and preventing them from enlarging. 

 

AHA/BHAs isn’t for everyone. Those with sensitive skin may find that these exfoliating acids may be too drying and irritating for their skin. 

 

Common reactions to AHA/BHAs include:

  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Burning sensations

ZAN KWA’S CLOGGED PORES JOURNEY

Snowperk Ambassador Zan Kwa, who was not used to getting acne before, was struggling with acne due to a damaged skin barrier

 

Due to the overuse of BHA-based products, her skin type started becoming too oily and soon after, she started having bad acne breakouts.  

 

In a desperate state, Zan Kwa chanced upon a snowperk advertisement on Facebook.

 

After taking the FREE skin type quiz and an in-depth consultation with the snowperk skincare specialist, a personalised routine was recommended to her. 

 

Her routine consisted of the Skin Soothing & Hydrating booster to soothe inflammation, the Pore Minimizing booster to unclog pores and Balancing Moisturizer Gel-Cream to strengthen the skin barrier. 

 

After using snowperk, Zan Kwa’s stubborn skin concerns started improving – she was waking up with a fantastic face glowing with no oiliness

 

She also started seeing no new breakouts and her acne scars were actually starting to heal and lighten

 

Zan Kwa is impressed by how snowperk products are so simple yet effective as only patented concentrated actives are used.
