This instructable will tell you how to unclog your pores and clear acne in just a few simple steps!
This is a very low-maintenance method that requires only a few items, patience, and a tiny bit of will.
This method involves four major steps:
Ridding your surface skin of oil and dirt
Opening your pores for proper exfoliation using steam
Exfoliating to remove oil and dirt trapped in your pores
Applying 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide to cleanse deep inside your pores and rejuvenate them.
The reason this works so well is because the steam opens your pores allowing you to clean them better, while the facewash removes surface dirt/oil, the exfoliant removes the dirt/oil in your pores, and the Benzoyl Peroxide deep cleans while rejuvenating your pores.
I used to have seriously bad acne that drove me crazy. I felt like one giant zit and that's all people saw when they looked at me. This method has worked wonders for my face so far, even after everything else I've tried has failed. It's easy and leaves my face feeling clean, fresh, and rejuvenated. =)
Step 1: What You'll Need
Exfoliating facewash - Optionally containing salicylic acid for more benefits
2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide Cream
Small cooking pot
Hot pot pad, trivet, or extra towel
Note: Do not use Benzoyl Peroxide stronger than 2.5%. Studies have shown that 2.5% BP is just as strong as 10%, but much less irritating to the skin.
Step 2: Preparing Your Face for Treatment
Note for guys: You may want to consider shaving first, as it greatly helps the treatments in cleansing the pores.
