Nobody ever said life was fair but why must a woman, who is more than 40 years old, have wrinkles and clogged pores at the same time?
Luckily, the answer may not be as complex as we originally believed. In fact, our clogged pores may be caused by some of those simple daily habits you and I do everyday.
9 Sneaky Things That Are Clogging Your Pores:
If you live in the city, you know just what we are talking about. Granted, this one is pretty much out of your control but you can use activated charcoal to draw the impurities out of your skin helping those pores appear small again. If you aren’t a fan of rubbing black charcoal all over your face, you could use Theraderm NuPeel Enzyme Peel instead. (Plus, it adds micronutrients back to your skin!)
2. Cell Phone
Have you ever thought about this? You pull your cell phone from the bottom of your handbag that is full of crumbs and other unknowns and you press it right next to your face. It only makes sense that our pores would become clogged. Wipe your phone down at least once a day to remove acne-causing bacteria.
3. Your Hands
It can be hard to remember to keep your hands off your face, but now that you know the naturally occurring oils on them are clogging your pores, you will remember.
Wash once a week. Period.
5. Dirty Makeup Brushes
Ladies. You have to clean those makeup brushes regularly to keep them bacteria free.
6. Night Cream
Typically, when a product has “night” in the name, it contains oils to give it super hydrating powers. Look for something a little less, um, greasy, like Theraderm Peptide Hydrator.
7. Working Out
No, this is not an excuse to not get your body moving, but it is a plea for you to cleanse your face free from sweat afterward. Theraderm Cleansing Wash is soap-free, oil-free and fragrance-free to gently cleanse your skin after any activity.
8. Being a Girl
Sigh. We swear those hormones are out to get us sometimes! (or at least once a month!)
You know how we feel about going to bed with makeup on. Just don’t. Not only does it clog your pores, sleeping in your makeup ages you prematurely because your skin doesn’t have a chance to repair itself.
