On any given day, your skin is battling sweat, pollution, and pore-clogging face makeup. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, keeping your pores spick and span is especially hard work. After all, in daily life, are so many things trying to congest your pores, including many skincare ingredients and your body’s natural oil production. See, a pore (or follicle) is “a duct in the skin that is attached to the sebaceous glands that produce sebum,” explains esthetician Renée Rouleau. Oily skin types are more prone to experience blockages in their pores, which causes bacteria to thrive, leading to whiteheads, blackheads, and papules. Ick.

The goal, of course, is to clear your pores, allowing oxygen to flow freely through them, so bacteria can’t cause problems. But it’s easier said than done. Luckily, we are in the business of helping you cure your skin woes and have put together a list of easy, effective ways to keep your pores in tip-top shape.
