Blocked Pores

What are Blocked Pores?

Oil excreted by the sebaceous glands, called sebum, acts like a glue to cling to dead skin cells. The skin cells are then excreted from the body through the pores to help you maintain healthy skin. Sometimes, as the glands expel these dead skin cells, build-up can occur and your pores will clog.

Treatments

Treatments for blocked pores start with an effective skin care regimen which targets deep cleansing. Ingredients like salicylic acid and antioxidants are beneficial. Look for products containing key words like "purifying", "non-comedogenic", "exfoliating" and "deep cleansing formulations". Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Blocked Pores

The tiny openings in your skin, commonly called your pores, play a vital role in the health of your complexion and the skin on the rest of your body. The pores allow sebum, the natural lubricant for your skin tissue, to reach the outer layers of your skin, which is the driest portion of your complexion and most in need of regular moisture. The pores also help release sweat, a bodily function that exists in order to maintain healthy internal temperatures.

Causes

Since the pores are tiny, open tubules, it is as easy for items to enter them as it is for sebum and sweat to exit through them. Unfortunately, dirt, makeup residue and dead skin cells all have the ability to invade the pores, causing blockages that appear as tiny, black dots on your face. These blockages sometimes harden, forming comedones or blackheads that are difficult to remove. Blocked pores can also harbor bacteria, which cause infections and lead to the appearance of whiteheads or acne blemishes.
