5 Brilliant Ways to Unclog Your Pores

On any given day, your skin is battling sweat, pollution, and pore-clogging face makeup. We’ll be the first to admit that keeping pores spick and span is work. Playing the ignorance-is-bliss game is one strategy, however, we propose a more proactive approach.

Click through for all the best off-the-shelves and professional remedies for clogged pores!

#1: Professional Solution: Microdermabrasion
Enlarged pores are most likely to set camp right smack in the facial centre stage where you least want them – the T-zone with the adjacent inner cheek, and chin – due to the higher density of oil glands. Sebum pooling in the pits, especially when clogged together with dead skin cells, pollution and makeup, can cause them to appear more prominent.

Get closure from your pores with Microdermabrasion (MDA). This time-tested beauty treat exfoliates away the pore-magnifying, blackhead-inducing gunk, and helps regulate skin’s healthy cellular renewal for a brighter, clearer complexion. Best paired with Ultrasonic Deep Cleansing (available together as the Deep Deep Clean facial) to decongest frustrating T-zone traffic jams.

Available as the Deep Deep Clean facial, S$306.02

#2. Professional Solution: Laser Peel
Laser Peel goes a notch deeper to challenge the notion of pores “born this way”. This smooth operator infiltrates into the depths of congested pores with the help of a specialized pre-laser Pore Matrix mask to clear the channels, bring overactive oil glands under control and strengthen the walls with collagen, hence giving you closure from open pores and converting greasy gleam into a polished glow.

Available as the Pore Reduction Program (S$3,210 for 6 sessions)

#3. Professional Solution: SmartX Lite
SmartX Lite literally gives your skin a rebirth by resurfacing the skin in a controlled, gentle manner with minimal downtime. You can say goodbye to all skin problems, including open pores, acne scars, wrinkles, sagginess, and pigmentation. The best part is that the immediate effects are not all that you get – your skin undergoes ongoing metamorphosis for 3 months after each procedure, with further improvements in skin texture.

Available as the Sparkling Skin Program (S$4,815 for 6 sessions).

#4. Store Bought Solution: Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment
Activated charcoal is a skincare superstar for congested complexions. It attracts toxins and absorbs up to 200 times its weight in impurities. Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment mask is armed with Activated-X Charcoal to perform a vacuum-worthy pore degunking, along with a blend of BHA and AHAs to nix unwanted shine, zits, pimple marks and enlarged pores.

$69 USD, available at Sephora.com

#5. Store Bought Solution: Sloane Inc. Crystal Clear Scrub S3.3
The power of regular exfoliation can never be overstated. It’s one of the simplest and most fundamental ways to unclog pores and keep them that way. Sloane Inc. Crystal Clear Scrub is a creamy luxuriant exfoliant powered by ultra-fine bamboo crystals and skin-healing aloe vera to leave you feeling ohh-so-fine.

$42 USD, available at Sloaneshop.com
