Effective Methods for Unclogging Skin Pores

The skin pores on the outer layer of the skin are the place for dirt, oil, and bacteria to get stuck and clog the skin pores. Daily accumulation of dust, sweat, soil, makeup and pollution leads to having dirty skin pores. If neglected, they can turn into blackheads and even cause skin breakouts. Open pore treatment creams and serums may be convenient, but the chemicals and parabens can leave side effects on your skin.  So here are some impactful ways to treat dirty skin pores:  

1.Taking steam: 

Water vapour is the best, most natural, and most impactful medicine for dirty skin pores. Water steam opens your nasal congestion and your dirty pores and helps reduce the excess oil. Warm vapour also kills acne-causing bacteria on the top layer of the skin. Don't forget to cleanse deep and exfoliate the skin before you take the steam. Steaming your skin for 5-10 minutes each day will help your skin loosen the dirt on the surface.
