Pore strips are a great way to remove troublesome blackheads and clear blocked pores. Blackheads (open comedones) occur when pores become clogged with dead skin cells and sebum. Over time the sebum darkens and the visible result is the blackhead we all know too well.
Pore strips won't stop further blackheads from forming, but they do help to dislodge multiple blackheads at once and can be a great quick-fix when you need to get rid of blackheads in a hurry.
Also, by removing blackheads with pore strips you save your skin from the redness and damage caused by overzealous squeezing.
