Using a plant based natural cleanser is a great treatment for clogged pores as they come in many shapes and sizes, from blackheads (small black bumps), to spots (on the surface of the skin, usually with a white head) to cysts (large lumps under the skin) and can be a nightmare to treat. The severity of clogged pores can also vary wildly, from occasional mini-breakouts to full blown severe acne.
A simple and easy way to ease congested skin is to give it a thorough cleansing treatment using a plant-based natural cleanser. However, this does not mean stripping away all the oil on your skin (as this will then send a message to your body that your skin has no oil and your natural defence will kick-in and supply more!) However, by using a gentle plant based natural cleanser with a good, exfoliating cloth (either a muslin cloth or a simple face flannel will do) you can ease clogged pores and gently remove any congestion. Never treat congested skin harshly as it is already inflamed and you don’t want to anger it further.
Using a natural cleanser is an easy way to ease congested skin. However, if you have severe, long-term skin breakouts then it’s worth visiting a doctor to try and establish why it is that your skin is reacting in this way as it can be a sign of an underlying cause!
