Have you ever washed your face and then taken a cotton round to it and still found it had a layer of makeup or dirt on it? (Cause, same) I have notoriously congested skin but always have a tough time with harsh products that are meant for exfoliating and cleaning out pores due to the sensitive nature of my skin. Although the right products can absolutely make a difference, they can’t totally do their job without a clean canvas. Think about it — you could put the most beautiful paint on a canvas but if it had garbage on it the painting wouldn’t turn out no matter what you did.
Enter: the pore vacuum. It’s a treatment tool that has a small vacuum with different attachments and different speeds of suction to help remove the dead skin, oil, and congestion that may be lurking in your pores. Since I don’t have an at-home steamer but I know this is an essential part of opening your pores, I use the pore vacuum at the very very end of a steamy shower. You’ll want your face to be damp to help the vacuum tip glide over your skin, being careful not to let it sit in one place (you could risk bruising or damaging your skin if you were to hold it in one spot).
I typically cleanse my face first, use the pore vacuum, then follow up with a mask of some sort once I get out of the shower. Be sure to clean out your pore vacuum after each use (rubbing alcohol on a q-tip works well for me!)
Va-va VOOM! Your skin is already glowing. Want to get in on the hype? You can snag your rechargeable pore vacuum here
