Congested skin is something that many of us suffer with, and it is not just during our teen years as it is an issue that can always be with us. Congested skin can show up as spots, blackheads, clogged pores, and bumps. To avoid this it is good to know the causes.
How Our Skin Becomes Congested
There are a few things that can cause skin congestion. A common one is when the pores become clogged with oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. This can happen when we are in polluted environments and when daily grime is not cleared effectively. Hormonal changes can also play a role.
Squeezing spots and blackheads can contribute to congested skin. When we squeeze a spot or blackhead it can leave an enlarged pore, which is susceptible to congestion. This is because when we squeeze our spots and blackheads it can widen the stretchy skin around the pore, which can lead to it becoming wider plus larger, and this can be permanent. Not only are the pores more visible but they also maintain debris, which often results in a blackhead in the area.
How to Clear Congested Skin
Good cleansing is essential to avoid congested skin. Always use an effective product like our natural anti-ageing cleansing milk or natural anti-ageing face wash. These use botanical cleansers to clear skin deep down, while being kind to skin at the same time. Then follow with either our natural anti-ageing toner or natural anti-ageing exfoliator. Using a mild but powerful natural exfoliating agent on your skin is one of the easiest and quickest ways to clear congestion skin as it will help to slough off dead skin cells and other debris that can clog pores and lead to congestion. At Nakin our exfoliator is kind to all skin types including sensitive skin.
Another option to clear up congested skin is to use a clay mask. Clay masks help to absorb excess oil and impurities from the skin, leaving it feeling clean and refreshed. If you have oily or congested skin, using a clay mask can help to keep your complexion clear and free of congestion.
Whatever type of cleanser that you use it will also help to keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using high quality facial treatments and moisturisers, like those in Nakin’s Range. Every face product that we have in our collection has the power to improve skin to help it flourish and thrive, for fresh, clear conditioned skin.
