The Simplified Guide to Treat Clogged Pores

No matter how clear your face is, if you happen to have enlarged pores it can make your skin appear dull and less healthy. Team Eunogo is here with a quick and simplified way to get those pores under control, so let us walk you through the essential skincare routine and must-haves to treat clogged pores without irritating or dehydrating your skin. Onwards!

Step 1 Cleansing

Because cleansing is a daily step it is one of the most important parts of your pore control routine. One of the reasons so many suffer from blackheads and enlarged pores is that the dirt trapped inside is allowed to oxidize and turn black. This is the time to reach deep into pores boosting out dirt & oils with a rich foaming cleanser. We recommend the OxygenCeuticals Pore Mask Facial Cleanser. Oxygen bubbles and lavender oil gently remove dead skin cells and wastes deep in the pores and brighten the skin.

Step 2 Exfoliation

Our skin regenerates every 28 days and diligence in exfoliating those dead skin cells is a must! We recommend a mild chemical exfoliator using AHA, BHA or PHA  which will gently remove excess dead skin cells, oil and wastes and provide the new baby skin cells more room to “breathe.”

Exfoliate 1-2 times per week to help regulate your pore size and the added bonus of better absorption of your follow-up skincare steps. Our best seller pick is Ceramine’s Botanical Peeling Gel.  

Step 3 Clay Mask

One of the most effective ways to make sure your pores size is regulated is to use a clay mask 2-3 times per week depending on your skin type. If you’ve had a prior experience of a clay mask leaving your face tight and dry after use, have no fear: Eunogo’s pick is the Ceramine Transforming Clay Mask that will not dry out your face, instead, leaving your skin hydrated, brightened, and excess oil controlled. Formulated with 100% natural French clay ingredients, Ceramine’s Transforming Clay Pack soothes and smooths out your skin.

Step 4 Sebum Control Ampoule

Apply a daily ampoule that controls your sebum and reduces shine to prevent clogging pores and acne. Team Eunogo swears by Yourfit Sebum Control Ampoules (purple), which are freshly vacuum sealed without any preservatives and do a terrific job at managing the oil your face produces, especially in your T-Zone. Another bonus? Reduced shine. This one’s a winner in our book.  

Step 5 Soothing Cream

At last we come to the grand finale - a soothing, lightweight texture cream that uses botanical extracts to calm your face and won’t clog your pores.  Team Eunogo’s pick is made with 54.2% pure, natural Centella Leaf Extract (CICA) from Madagascar and will give your face a healthy, non-comedogenic glow.  Here’s a bonus tip: Besides soothing and moisturizing, the Pure Energy Cica Cream also has brightening and anti-wrinkle effects. This cream absorbs well, so you can layer accordingly when you want to apply it lightly, or when you want to apply it thickly as a sleeping pack.
