Is yourskin care pump not working? If so, not to worry. Many of your favorite products use a pump mechanism to deliver product. While said pump is made to make life easier, that's not always the case. There's nothing quite as annoying as when your product pump stop working, but we have the right solutions when you're in a pinch.

Why won’t my skin care pump work?

Often, an air bubble will form inside the product container, causing what seems to be a broken pump. The pump itself may also be jammed. To fix a jammed pump, you can use a tool like a wrench. Hold the bottle and twist the top with the wrench until the top pops up. Now, your skin care product is ready to use!

How do you fix a bottle that won't pop up?

To get the product to dispense, cap it, turn it upside down and tap it against a hard surface 10 to 15 times, then try to pump it again. After trying that, it should begin to work properly. Skin care pump not working still? If that didn't do the trick, check the date of purchase, you may just be out of your product.
