To Help Prevent or Reduce Whiteheads

Remove Makeup at night - If you wear make-up don’t sleep in it.

Deep Cleanse - To help stop whiteheads start with a good cleanser that deep cleanses.

Exfoliate - To stop dead cell buildup. You have a choice to use a manual exfoliant such as granule scrub, enzyme or glycolic. If you select a scrub, don’t overuse it or rub too hard. You don’t want to irritate or inflamed your skin. Avoid overworking the scrub on your cheeks. Most people begin on their cheeks, then, over-work the product. Leaving the cheeks red and irritated. Enzymes and glycolic exfoliants help dissolve dead skin cells.

Protect Pores - Protect your open pores from debris with a moisturizer that allows your own natural oil (sebum) to flow, in addition to sealing your skin’s moisture in. This is important, because if your skin is dehydrated, it may produce even more oil to compensate for the surface dryness.
