We’ll be the first to tell you that skincare is never easy. No matter how careful we are about what we put onto our skin or into our bodies, there just isn’t any getting away from certain external factors that can cause havoc for your complexion. Things like air pollution, harsh weather, humidity and more can lead to blocked pores. You’ve likely heard of skin congestion, but what is it and how can we treat it?
What Is Skin Congestion?
Sweat, dead skin cells and pollutants are just some of the things that can lead to blocked pores, but blocked pores aren’t the only contributors to skin congestion. Other symptoms such as roughness and bumpiness, breakouts and general dullness all come together to congest the skin.
Clogged pores, in particular, can lead to inflammation and acne if left untreated. Certain triggers can also exacerbate your symptoms, and these include hormone imbalances, a poor diet and an improper skincare routine.
Areas such as the cheeks and the T-zone are most commonly affected by skin congestion and it might be that you simply need to make some adjustments to your daily routine. Finding the perfect skincare regimen is all about trial and error because your skin is unique. What works for someone else might not work for you, so it’s important to understand your skin type and how to cater to it. That’s easier said than done, which is why our experts at La Fuente Clinic are always on hand to offer specialist advice.
Advanced Facials At La Fuente Clinic
You might get to a point where you feel like you’ve tried everything to revitalise your complexion and nothing seems to work. Have you tried an advanced facial here at La Fuente Clinic? We offer a number of effective skincare treatments that are designed to rejuvenate your complexion and enhance your at-home skincare routine.
TheraClear™, a Harley Street staple, is a unique vacuum-meets-laser system designed to cleanse pores from the inside without the need for invasive techniques. Ideal as either a regular facial or as part of a combination treatment plan, we can help to minimise blemishes and encourage a clearer, healthier tone by extracting nasty dirt and debris in as little as one session.
Alternatively, Dermaplaning is a next-level exfoliation procedure where we carefully remove dead skin cells with a special blade to unclog your pores and freshen up your face. This is highly effective as either a standalone treatment or when combined with other facials. Newly rejuvenated skin not only looks radiant but also absorbs your skincare products better.
To explore your options and find out more about our treatments, schedule a consultation here at La Fuente Clinic. We’ll conduct a thorough assessment of your skin to determine the most effective course of action to leave your skin looking and feeling better than ever before.
