6 Spring Cleaning Tips For Clear Skin

When folks think of spring cleaning, they think of the dusty corners of their home. But what about your personal care items?

From hair care to skincare and makeup, spring is the perfect time to pull out all your products and check those ingredients again the Acne Specialists Pore Cloggers list.

Even if you checked the ingredients when you first started using the product, check again. Companies often re-formulate products without warning or announcement.

You might have added in a hair serum, or new conditioner, months ago and forgotten to check the ingredients. Little changes can add up over time and wreak havoc on your complexion.

In order to gain control, let’s “spring clean” your products. Check your items against the pore clogging list to see if they are still safe.

Compare your products’ ingredients to PoreCloggers.com. Double-check all your products, even if they were previously acne-safe.

    What do you recommend as absolutely non-comedogenic beauty products (no pore-clogging) ? Day cream and foundation (enough coverage) with sufficient sun protection factor if possible, sunscreen, anti-wrinkle night cream (52 ​​years)?

    I thank you for your advice.
    best wishes,
