Benefits of Using a Pore Cleansing Tool

When most people think of acne products, they think of cleansers, astringents, and lotions that have special ingredients to reduce acne breakouts. Acne is caused by the over-production of DHT, a hormone that increases oil production in the skin. However, the acne breakouts occur when dead skin cells and dirt stick to the oil inside the pore and create an ideal environment for acne-causing bacteria. Although using a product that fights the production of DHT is the only way to effectively treat acne, a pore cleansing tool is a convenient product that will help get skin even cleaner.
Although dirt is not the cause of acne, as people once believed, it can aggravate an existing condition. While there are many acne products made to “deep cleanse” skin, many either contain harsh ingredients that can damage skin, or they involve using tools that are used to scrub the skin clean. These products can cut the skin and aggravate the acne, making it even worse than it was before. The pore cleansing tool, on the other hand, is gentle and will not hurt your skin.
Some important guidelines to help you get the best results when cleaning your pores:

  • Steam skin prior to using the cleansing tool, to open pores
  • Clean your face thoroughly before use, to remove makeup and dirt, preventing them from getting in the pores
  • Limit use to no more than three days per week, to prevent irritation and inflammation
  • Disinfect the pore cleansing tool after each use

Getting results from cleaning your pores could take a few weeks. With persistence and strict adherence to these guidelines, you will start to see clearer, softer skin. To learn more about treating acne at the root cause, call Clearogen at 877-30-CLEAR.
