Do cleansing pore strips work?

Cleansing pore strips is something I think every woman enjoys doing and seeing the after results. (You know what I mean!) These are great for women and men of course. You would be surprised how many men do this to their pores without you knowing. If there is one thing I hate its black pores that are visible, the truth is most of us have them especially on our nose. Sometimes some people have too much and it looks really bad. The best way to help tone down the appearance of them is by using pores strips that basically try their best to stick onto the blackheads and extract as many of them without damaging your skin.

Squeezing a blackhead to come out of its pore is something I am certain we have all done before but the actual movement is terrible for your skin and usually leaves you scars. The skin so you understand is like a piece of tissue and if you tug on it too much its going to rip and damage. Pore strips are great because they suck as much as they can up and extract in a lifting motion.

Not all of them can be extracted so the best thing to do is exfoliate on a daily basis with a gentle formula or exfoliate every time you are in the shower and your pores are open from the steam. I use my cleansing brush which I have spoken about before and you can find the blog post here on a daily basis along with a good cleanser that keeps my skin type happy. I recommend using these once or twice a month and the reason is because the rest will go to waste. You could definitely try but if your pore strip has just had a shot at taking a certain blackhead out and nothing has happened then you should leave it a bit longer and keep exfoliating. In two weeks or a months time it will be ready.

What pore strips should you use? Easy! Any. On my recent trip to the UK I stocked up on a brand called Beauty Formulas that cost me 1.00GBP per packet, they work just as good as the one pore strip that costs me triple the price. Another good idea is to make them yourself. Yes, you can actually DIY these at home if you google it there are lots of results of how to do them. I personally have never tried it before but my boyfriends sister says they are even better than the ready made pore strips and you can place the liquid anywhere on your face. She puts them on her cheeks, forehead and I would like to put some on my back when I get round to making some myself. What pore strips do you use and how often?
