Have you ever gone to bed looking like a flawless princess and woken up to find a spot or two has erupted on your face? Well you’re not alone.
In this blog we explain why this happens and how you can avoid it happening to you.
Skin contains sebaceous glands that release natural oils known as sebum, which are responsible for keeping your skin hydrated. It also locks in moisture and strengthens the skin’s protective barrier.
Sebum travels to your skin surface through skin pores. However, sebum can also attract dirt and dust, which can settle in the skin pores and block them.
It is common to have clogged skin pores in the face, nose, forehead, and cheeks as dead skin cells, excessive oil, dirt, and bacteria accumulate in the pores.
Clogged skin pores are easily visible on the skin surface, appearing larger and darker and often leading to the development of blackheads and pimples. If your pores continue to be clogged, they may become dilated over time. We highly recommend you adopt a skin care regime to prevent clogging of pores and to keep your skin healthy.
A skincare regime is simply a collection of products you regularly use to care for your skin. As we are all individual our skin care needs will be different so a one size fits all approach to skin care is unlikely to have consistent results.
