Taking care of my skin has always been a priority for me since I was a teen, yet having combination skin is usually a headache when it comes to skin care. Products formulated for oily skin can be too drying, and products for dry skin can cause oiliness on my T-zone, causing my pores to become larger and more apparent. I recently picked up a new line from Bioré
that is specially formulated for combination skin and features a new secret weapon for cleaning pores-- baking soda. Both the Bioré Baking Soda Pore Cleanser
and Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub
are a skin care routine must for anyone with combination skin.
I have never used cleansers or scubs with baking soda before and was intrigued to see how it would work for me and my pores. Here's how I give my pores a deep clean with my nightime face cleansing ritual using these products:
After removing my eye makeup with a creamy makeup remove, I start with the Bioré Baking Soda Pore Cleanser,
working the cleanser into a lather and gently massaging it on my face in circular motions to remove makeup, excess dirt and oil, rinsing with warm water. With a pH balanced formula and soft cleansing beads that help to exfoliate dry skin, this cleanser is great to use daily to deep clean pores.
Next, I apply the Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub,
which is different than any other scrub I have ever used and is actually pretty cool! As it is a powder-to-foam formula that starts to foam as you add water. It's almost like a science experiment when watching it start to foam! Who thought face washing could actually be so fun?
To use, I shake a small amount out into my palm and add a little water to activate the scrub. You can customize how much exfoliation depending on how much water you add-- more water will make it softer.and dissolve quicker I then apply it to my face, again massaging in into my skin in a circular motion, especially where my skin is dryest to help remove dead, dry skin, and then rinsing thoroughly with warm water.
Finally, I pat my face dry with a towel and then apply moisturizer or argan oil to keep my skin hydrated and healthy through the night. There's nothing better than going to bed with a fresh and clean moisturized face!
After using the cleanser and scrub, my skin, and especially my pores, immediately feels clean and super smooth! After a few days of use, I have noticed my skin looks and feels more balanced overall.
You can find both Bioré
products at your local Target store in the facial care aisle-- I found them both easily on a shelf at the end of the aisle. The baking soda line is good for those with combination skin, however if you have oily skin, be sure to check out Bioré's line of charcoal products.
