PORE CARE 101

WHY CARE?

Maintaining clean,
healthy pores

is important for sustaining healthy skin since the average adult has approximately 200,000 facial pores.

THE QUESTION:

Can clogged pores lead to acne and blemishes?

Really? Yes! Dirt and oil collect around your pores, creating build-up that can clog the skin follicle. If bacteria makes its way to the blockage and grows, this can cause inflamation and result in acne and blemishes. Swelling and redness may linger in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, and red inflamed patches of skin.

THE SOLUTION:

Cleanse, Tone, Remove.

Our Blemish Fighting Regimen works wonders.
Just choose a cleanser, astringent, and pore strip for clear skin.

If you have acne, salicylic acid is one of the best acne fighting ingredients. It helps reduce sebum and limits bacteria growth. By causing the uppermost layer of skin to swell, soften, and then peel, Salicylic acid corrects the abnormal shedding of cells. For milder acne, it helps unclog pores to heal and prevent lesions. Amazing.
