In beauty salons, a qualified specialist can offer to carry out a hardware cleaning procedure - ultrasonic, laser or vacuum. By the way, many cosmetologists recommend, for the first time, to stop at the choice of mechanical cleaning of the skin surface, which is done by hand. After such a procedure, you should continue to clean the pores with special preparations every day at home. After that, you need to use products that help narrow the pores.
Also, to cleanse the pores, it is necessary to use cleansing gels and masks, scrubs for daily use, which are designed directly to eliminate blackheads. Products that include BHA and ANA acids are excellent help.
To cleanse the skin surface and eliminate blackheads, special masks that you can prepare yourself help. For example, a product based on egg white gives an excellent effect. To prepare it, you need to mix 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar with 1 egg white. Please note: the sugar must completely dissolve when preparing the mask. Apply half of the prepared product to the face. As soon as the mask dries slightly, the second half of the mixture is applied. After 7-10 minutes, the remnants of the product are washed off with warm running water. Apply a protein mask no more than 1 time per week.
