Congested Skin

What is Congested Skin?

Congested skin is skin that is troubled by blackheads and pores that are obstructed by dead skin cells and an oily substance called sebum.

Treatments

Congested skin needs gentle cleansing twice a day with a mild cleanser. Products that contains AHA or a beta-hydroxy acid like salicylic acid works well on clogged pores. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Congested Skin

Healthy skin looks clear and translucent with a faint glow. The texture is smooth and even without areas of roughness or unevenness. On the other hand, some people have congested skin - skin that’s troubled by clogged pores and blackheads. This can be a frustrating problem, but, fortunately, there are ways to help open up pores that are clogged so that skin looks and feels smoother and more even in texture.

What Causes Clogged, Congested Pores and Blackheads?

There are glands in the skin called sebaceous glands that produce a sticky substance called sebum. Sebum has the function of lubricating and protecting skin from infection. Hormonal fluctuations, especially an increase in hormones called androgens, stimulate sebum production. If too much sebum is produced, it can stick to dead skin cells within follicles and cause the opening called the pore to become blocked.
