Using an all natural face wash in conjunction with a natural face exfoliator is a great treatment for clogged pores as clogged pores 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 an all natural face wash along with very gentle natural face exfoliator. 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!) If you are experiencing issues with acne, pimples and clogged pores, we suggest using the natural face exfoliator at least 4 to 5 times a week and an all natural face wash every morning and every evening.
Also, we cant stress enough that it is important to make sure that the face exfoliator you use is very gentle as you should never treat troubled and congested skin harshly as it is already inflamed and you don’t want to anger it further.
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 just in case it's a sign of an underlying cause!
