How To Unclog Your Pores


Do you have oily, acne-prone skin, or just feel like you're constantly combatting blackheads and clogged pores? It might be time to review your routine.

What are pores?

Pores are tiny openings in the skin that are the pathway for oil (sebum) and sweat. While a common misconception is that oil = bad, our skin's sebum is a very natural function, essential for maintaining a hydrated and healthy complexion.

How do pores get clogged?

There's a number of reasons why our pores get clogged, including genetics, however the main cause is when dead skin cells, oil or dirt get trapped in your pores.

So, how do you unclog your pores?

  1. Review your cleansing ritual. If you wear make-up and SPF during the day, double cleansing is essential, starting with an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser. Make sure to thoroughly remove all product from your face before proceeding with the remainder of your routine.
  2. Regular exfoliation. Exfoliating your face 2-3 times a week helps to remove dead skin cells that could be a contributing factor for your clogged pores. Opt for something gentle like our 2-in-1 Resurfacing Exfoliant to effectively buff without irritating.
  3. Use non-comedogenic oils. The comedogenic scale ranges from 0 to 5, with 0 being non-comedogenic (least likely to clog pores) and 5 being highly comedogenic (most likely to clog pores). If you are using oils, ensure that you're opting for types that are not going to clog your pores, but will nourish and hydrate your skin. Our Antioxidant Facial Oil is the perfect lightweight blend for all skin types. Apply a weekly mask for a deep cleanse. Not only are masks great for providing a deep & thorough cleanse, but a beautiful weekly ritual of self care.
