Give them some TLC!

With skincare, prevention is always better than cure. And if you're tired of having to deal with congested skin or clogged pores, a routine that gives them more TLC than average is key. Check out our recommended skincare regimen for this skin concern below!

1. Makeup Remover

Clogged pores are a sign that makeup, dirt, and other impurities are not removed properly. So if yours are congested, make it a point to remove every last bit of your makeup before you sleep. We recommend micellar water for those sensitive to oil cleansers.

2. Cleanser + Cleansing Brush

After removing your makeup, it's time for a double cleanse. Try investing in a cleansing brush to go with your regular cleanser for a deeper clean, just to make sure that no irritants are left on your skin.

3. Chemical Exfoliator

Chemical exfoliation targets the root of your pore dilemmas better than a scrub or any pore strip can. Products with Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid can go deeper into pores than regular skincare products, and when used frequently, your skin will eventually be less prone to being congested.

4. Clay Mask

Activated charcoal or clay masks are the weekend treatments that your skin will appreciate. Clay masks in particular can scoop out any residue on your skin to prepare it for your serums and moisturizers.

5. Spot Treatment + Pore Care Serum

Once the skin is clear of possible irritants, you can move on to treating any breakouts with a spot treatment and applying a serum that soothes your pores. This will seal in the cleansing you've done and heal any existing issues that cleansing can't.

6. Moisturizer

Top off your skincare with a hydrating moisturizer that your skin can absorb quickly and efficiently. Oil-free or non-greasy moisturizers work well for skin types prone to irritation!

7. Primer

This is technically not a skincare product, but it's an essential item to have if you're a makeup-wearer. Primers build a barrier between your face makeup and the skin to prevent breakouts from any nasty chemicals. Plus, they make your makeup last longer, too!
