We all want luminous, flawless skin. But it can be challenging to achieve if your skin is congested. Congested skin broadly refers to skin conditions where dead skin cells, tiny hairs, dirt, debris, and oil build up within a skin pore, which causes clogged pores, whiteheads, and blackheads. An easy way to tell if you have congested skin is to run your fingers across your face. If it feels bumpy and uneven to the touch, chances are it’s congested. Cleansing and exfoliating are often the best ways to tackle this skin concern. However, we suggest that you visit your dermatologist for tailored guidance if you aren’t seeing the results you want.
