Using a pore cleanser

Pore Cleanser Advice and Usage. A pore cleanser is a pore cleaner tool used to get rid of excess dirt and oil from your skin, particularly your face and nose. While several over-the-counter facial washes also refer to themselves as pore cleansing tool, this article discusses how to clean pores with the dirt suction tool itself. This pore cleansing device promises to leave your skin a whole lot cleaner after each treatment.

The suction level of pore cleansers is low, so you don’t need to worry about injuring your skin. It only targets the dirt and accumulated grime embedded in your pores. Regularly washing your face does help keep your skin clean and healthy. However, the frequent use of pore cleansing tools will help you prevent acne problems in the future, because such tools are able to reach deep down into areas lather-based products can’t.

How to clean pores
To get the best results with a pore cleanser tool, it’s important to use it when the pores are open. You can do this by steaming your face over hot water to loosen them up. Just be careful not to stay too long or you might scald yourself. A hot shower also works if you’re not really keen on hunching over a basin of hot water.

Clean your face thoroughly first before you begin extracting. Make sure no excess dirt or makeup is left on your face before you open your pores, as these can aggravate the situation and result in pimples (which are a lot more annoying!). It’s recommended that you use pore cleansers around two to three times a week. Using a pore cleansing tool every day is not only tedious but might also cause other infections and inflammations.

Much of the embedded dirt can be found in our cheeks, nose, forehead and chin, so these are the areas you need to concentrate on with pore cleansers. Try not to use the pore cleanser tool on your hairline and eye areas, because your skin is likely to be thinner there. Picking pimples in these areas can lead to scarring.

After a pore cleansing tool, be sure to disinfect and apply moisturizer to soothe your skin. It may feel a little red and tender after the treatment. Some of the blackheads and whiteheads on our skin are so embedded that it will take a while to get them out, even with a fully steamed face and a very good pore cleansing tool.

When using a pore cleanser tool, don’t force the dirt out if you can’t do it in one or two tries. You are not a skin expert and this job is best left to the professionals. Once you’ve started on a pore cleansing regimen, you’ll notice that your skin will become brighter and softer in about two to three weeks. Results vary, though, but you will definitely see improvement. Users of pore cleansers have sworn to their effectiveness in gaining softer and brighter skin.
