Clogged Pores

What are Clogged Pores?

Clogged pores, also known as comedones, can be a precursor to bigger skin problems, most notably acne. Comedones are hair follicle pores that are obstructed by dead skin cells and an oily substance called sebum.

Treatments

Thankfully, there are ways to treat clogged pores. The key is a cleansing regimen with ingredients that focus on unclogging the pore like salicylic acid, retinoids, and AHAs. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Clogged Pores

Clogged pores, also known as comedones, can be a precursor to bigger skin problems, most notably acne. Comedones are simply hair follicle pores that are obstructed by dead skin cells and an oily substance called sebum. Sebum is a sticky, oily substance produced by sebaceous glands that line the hair follicle. It normally keeps skin moist and supple, but too much sebum can cause problems too.

When the sebaceous glands produce too much sebum, it blocks off the pore opening and dead skin cells and other debris accumulate causing a blockage. If the clogged pore becomes infected or inflamed, it can lead to the familiar papules and pustules we know of as acne. At other times, pores can be obstructed without becoming inflamed. In this case, they appear as blackheads or whiteheads on the surface of the skin. All occurrences are considered unsightly and unpleasant, which is why there’s so much focus on treating them.
