Blackheads, Congestion + Enlarged Pores
Generally it all comes back to an impaired barrier causing dehydration and leading to excessive oil flow to compensate for the the loss of barrier function. This in turn will cause the pores to enlarge to let more oil flow onto the skin. However if the oil is of poor quality it will not allow the oil to flow freely onto the skin causing congestion within the pores. We also have different types of congestion such as closed comedones and open comedones. Your therapist will always prescribe a home care routine tailored to your needs and work on repairing your barrier first to improve the quality of the oil or remove the possible comedogenic products from your current routine.
