An alternative to a pore cleaner is the cleansing of the skin in a cosmetic studio. However, this is always associated with higher costs. Of course, the pores can also be cleaned out by a special manual pore cleaner. With this each pore is cleaned individually, which presupposes time and a certain skill. In addition, this usually leads to greater redness and pain.
An alternative is Micro Needling with a Dermaroller or by a treatment in the studio. Dermabrasion can also be seen as an alternative. Here, the uppermost skin layer is removed. This treatment can also be carried out in a studio or at home using home appliances.
What are the different skin types and what are the causes of impure skin?
Every skin is different, just as every person is different. Some skin needs more attention, while other people practically never have to struggle with skin problems. In principle, there are 5 different skin types:
This skin is neither too dry nor too greasy. Normal skin is considered to be particularly easy to care for and is in balance with itself. This means that moisture content and sebum production are in balance with each other. The skin is rosy and fine-pored. Skin impurities practically do not occur with this skin type.
Sensitive skin is sensitive and prone to red spots. Sensitive skin may also show dry spots and itching. Sunbathing, temperature differences or strong winds do not make this skin feel so good. Certain ingredients in cosmetic products can quickly cause irritation. But not only external factors, but also food intolerance and stress can play a decisive role. Sensitive skin can be a sign of intolerance or allergy and, therefore, only a temporary condition. Sometimes, however, the skin type is also genetically predisposed.
Dry skin often itches and tightens because it lacks in moisture. In this case, the skin is not only dry, but can also feel rough and flaky. Sometimes it even becomes cracked. In any case, this skin type is more susceptible to early wrinkling on the forehead and around the eyes. If you have dry skin, you usually also have dry hair and wrinkles on your body. In rare cases, this is a skin disease such as neurodermatitis, which should be clarified by the doctor. However, people who have dry skin are less likely to struggle with impurities and enlarged pores. In any case, they need sufficient moisture!
Impure and Oily Skin
If the skin shines strongly and struggles with impurities, it is oily skin. It is caused by excessive sebum production. This leads to permanent stuggles with an oily film that covers the face. The sebum can therefore accumulate very quickly on the surface and clog the sebaceous glands and pores. Impurities and acne can develop. Not only facial skin, but also décolleté as well as back and scalp can be affected. However, oily skin tends to form premature wrinkles very rarely. In most cases, this skin type is genetically inherited, but can also result from an incorrect diet. Oily skin usually also has enlarged pores.
However, skin impurities and acne are not only caused by an incorrect diet and hereditary predisposition, but sometimes also by incorrect cleansing and care methods. It is important to free the skin from old skin flakes and to provide it with sufficient moisture, because oily skin forms an excess of oil, so that it comes back into balance. Ironically, oily skin is actually too dry!
People who suffer from dry and greasy areas on the face has mixed skin. The well-known T-zone is the problem zone in which the skin is mostly oily and tends to pimples. Large pores usually appear on the forehead, nose and chin. Around the eyes and on the cheeks, however, the skin tends to be dry. Mixed skin can be genetically conditioned, however, one should also pay attention to a balanced diet with this skin type and drink sufficient liquid. In addition, mixed skin must also be thoroughly cleansed and provided with moisture.
A pore cleaner is suitable for all skin types, but is particularly useful for impure, oily skin. The cleanser frees the skin from old skin cells and sebum and thus provides finer pores and a more beautiful skin appearance. Regular application is of utmost importance. Above all, one should pay attention to a thorough preparation as well as to a gentle after-treatment. If you use the pore cleaner, you can look forward to a fresher, purer and younger looking skin. The suitable cleanser should also be of high quality, convince with its attachments and be able to offer a fair price-performance ratio. Additionally, the device should always be cleaned on a regular basis so that one can always benefit from a hygienic application.
