We are aware of this. You immediately picture brows when you think of Benefit Cosmetics, right? We do, in fact, adore our arches, but we also adore PORES. When we initially released our pore primer, The POREfessional, in 2010, that is when our infatuation started. We don’t like to keep our beauty secrets to ourselves, especially when we have more than 5,000 certified Pore Experts globally, 10+ years of product development experience, and more. Therefore, we sat down with Benefit Global Brow & Beauty Authority & Licensed Esthetician, Jared Bailey, a true pore expert, to get the lowdown on how to effectively unclog our pores and get healthier-looking, cleaner skin. (After this, you’re going to be a POREfessional.) Tips On How To Clean Pores

So…Your Pores Cannot Be Removed. That’s a Good Thing, too!
How do you start cleaning your pores? learning about their activities and operations.

Unfortunately, pores are often given a bad rap, despite the fact that they are crucial to our continued health.

The little holes that enclose the hair follicles on your face are called pores. They exude sebum, a bodily produced natural oil that hydrates and maintains the suppleness and resilience of our skin. Over time, these tiny holes may “clog” if they become clogged with debris, bacteria, oil, dead skin cells, cosmetics, and other materials. You’re probably dealing with clogged pores if you’re finding skin blemishes coming to the surface.and it can be really annoying!

Thus, even if we can’t get rid of our pores (why would we want to? They provide so much assistance to us! ), we can lessen their visual impact by keeping them clean. With the right care, they won’t only look better; we’ll feel better, too.

First, double cleansing is essential.

Doubly cleaning is probably something you’ve heard about. Perhaps you even asked yourself, “Umm…TWO cleansers? That requires too much work. We comprehend. Money is time, bb. However, in this instance, both cleanses are really efficient and clear your pores simultaneously.

According to Bailey, the initial wash often aids in the removal of makeup, surface oil, and other impurities that we gather throughout the course of a regular day. “After we sweep that stuff away, we can get deeper and wash dirt away during the second cleanse.”

DoubleCleansing *Results may vary; images taken from a clinical trial of The POREfessional Get Unblocked and The POREfessional Good Cleanup.
A double cleansing routine is the best option if you want to truly cleanse your skin (and pores). We created a dynamic pair for double cleansing for this reason! The POREfessional Good Cleanup pore-purifying foamy cleanser and The POREfessional Get Unblocked pore-clearing makeup-removing cleansing oil. Both are cleansers, and while you can use them separately, they work best when together.

To remove grease and makeup, start by cleansing with The POREfessional Get Unblocked. When you use The POREfessional Good Cleanup after using waterproof mascara and long-wearing makeup, it helps wash away any impurities that are still present.

Still require some persuasion?

93% of those who have used The POREfessional Get Unblocked said it visibly melts away dirt, oil, and makeup**, and 99% of those who have used The POREfessional Good Cleanup said skin appears clearer AND feels smoother over time*. Additionally, using both cleansers together will allow you to perform a more complete double wash by removing both waterproof and long-wearing makeup.

Tip 2: Follow Our Lead and Be Kind

Don’t get us wrong, we love to exfoliate, but if you’re not utilizing mild products or methods, too much of a good thing may sometimes end up being not-so-good. Exfoliating too frequently and using harsh chemicals can damage the skin’s protective barrier, leave skin feeling bare, cause an excess of oil to be produced, and result in imperfect skin.

Verify that you are not going overboard and are being G-E-N-T-L-E.

3. Use only ingredients that your face will enjoy.

We adore elements that are mild, non-comedogenic (won’t block or clog pores), moisturizing, and/or non-stripping when it comes to pore care. We exclusively used chemicals like bisabolol, AHAs, PHAs, and squalane (to name a few) because our Pore Care from The POREfessional line was created expressly with pore cares and concerns in mind.

Why We Feel for Them

The component bisabolol, commonly referred to as alpha bisabolol or a-bisabolol, is frequently found in skin care products. It is well known for making skin feel relaxed and soothed. It is a component of our pore-clearing clay mask (The POREfessional Deep Retreat), pore-clearing oil (The POREfessional Get Unblocked), and pore-purifying foamy cleanser (The POREfessional Good Cleanup).

PHAs and AHAs: Acids are undoubtedly already a part of your daily regimen. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) are among the various types of acids.

AHAs assist to exfoliate and visibly tighten pores, which can be quite beneficial for oily or flaw-prone skin, according to Bailey. PHAs are excellent for people with sensitive skin or anyone who feels that other acids are a little bit too powerful for their skin type because they are quite similar to AHAs but are more mild.

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) adjusted in a mix can help exfoliate and noticeably tighten pores—gently. These make The POREfessional Tight ‘n Toned toning foam ideal for AM and PM routines, as do lemon extract (which makes pores look smaller) and yuzu extract (which helps skin feel smoother).

Squalane: According to Bailey, squalane is a biomimetic emollient that replicates the action of natural chemicals and is simple for human bodies to identify. It moisturizes and keeps our skin moisturized and supple.

Our thin moisturizer has a smoothing effect. The POREfessional Smooth Sip’s ingredients, which include squalane, niacinamide, celery and flax seed extracts, and aloe leaf juice, help to hydrate and balance the skin.


Tip #4! To soften pore buildup, use steam

a quick method to thorough clean? Boost the steam!

According to Bailey, using steam makes it simpler to eliminate more dirt, oil, and pollutants that may become lodged in our pores. Additionally, incorporating steam throughout your skincare routine is simply extremely soothing and posh, you know?

It’s a frequent misconception that steam can “open up pores,” but this isn’t actually the case. We cannot open or close pores, thus they are not like windows. Since their size and other features are frequently inherited, if your mother has larger pores, you might as well. But hey, we can still steam clean and disinfect them!Our top tips are listed below:

Spend some time in a steamy shower (always with clean skin!).
Your skin may be more sensitive when it’s warm. After a shower, apply soft, nourishing items without rubbing your skin with a towel.
You don’t have to steam every day; once a week should be sufficient.
After steaming, use a pore-clearing clay mask (hiii The POREfessional Deep Retreat) to help remove the softened dirt, oil, and debris.
Please remember to moisturize with The POREfessional Smooth Sip as well!

Make pore care a ritual with Tip #5.

Make sure you have an effective AM and PM Pore Care routine in place because our skin appreciates consistency (don’t we all?).whether there are 3 steps or 10 steps (the enthusiasm is great!). You can also include a few pore “treats” like a mask once a week.

Establishing a routine can also assist you in recognizing changes in your skin, as well as the products and ingredients that work (or don’t) for you. Progress, not perfection, is what matters. Additionally, it takes time, just like with any adjustment to your daily routine, so try to be patient.

You may achieve your greatest skin ever by devoting just a few minutes of your day to lovingly cleaning your pores.
