You might think that lathering up with some soap while you’re in the shower and giving your face a thorough washing is enough to prevent those dreaded zits and annoying acne. If you’re nodding your head, you’re not alone. A lot of guys think a basic face wash is sufficient to prevent clogged pores, but that’s just not the case. Sweat, dirt, and environmental factors can all contribute to clogged pores that can lead to skin irritations and blemishes. Fortunately, there are a few simple things you can do to keep your skin clear and your pores open and happy.
1. Use face cleanser to clear your pores
Seriously, face-specific cleanser isn’t just for women. Take a trip to the skin care aisle and find a good face cleanser made with glycolic and salicylic acid. Wash your face at least once a day with face cleanser, and you’ll get the upper hand on removing dirt that can clog your pores and promote acne.
2. Exfoliate your mug with face scrub
It’s not enough to just gently wash with soap and use face cleanser to keep your pores clear. Think of it like this. If your car was dirty, and you simply sprayed it with water, would it be cleaner? Probably. And when it dried, there’s no doubt you’d still see plenty of dirt a basic hose-off didn’t remove. You’ve got to give your face a good scrubbing to remove dirt and prevent clogged pores. Use a washcloth or exfoliating sponge and face scrub to remove dead skin and improve your complexion.
3. Get a facial
You can get your hands on a variety of products to give yourself a facial. But in all honestly, the sweet spot about this important skin care practice is the luxury of having someone else do it for you. Our facial options include three different levels of service to clear your pores and improve the health of your skin.
4. Treat acne with OTC options or see a doctor
If you have acne that doesn’t respond to over-the-counter options within a week, make an appointment to see a dermatologist. OTC options that include benzol peroxide and salicylic are effective ingredients that can treat acne, but if that doesn’t work you may need prescription medication to clear up your skin and your pores.
