2.) Stop petting it
3.) Be patient
Like I mentioned in how to make your pores seem smaller, you need to keep your skin clean. This will help unclog your pores, regardless of whether there’s a build-up of dead skin cells, bacterial cells or sebum. Exfoliating will help clear your skin too in addition to keeping your skin moisturized! But this isn’t going to be an instant cure or anything, you need to keep your skin clean and regularly wash your face to get rid of the clog eventually and keep your pores from clogging again.
By constantly touching your acne, you’re simply making it worse. Your hands have oils on them too, so if you are constantly touching your already clogged pores with your oily hands, your pores are just going be clogged further.
Also, popping pimples isn’t really the way to deal with them, unless you’re a bit impatient. Popping pimples can rupture your skin and spread the infection of bacteria (if it’s a whitehead, zit, or pimple), not to mention it’ll be a big red spot – so it’s not even worth it, really.
So, that’s the natural way to take care of your acne. Stay calm, cleanse, keep your hands away from your face and you’ll be golden.
