Treating Clogged Pores


 How Are Clogged Pores Formed? 

 The pores in your skin are small openings that help to release oil and sweat from your glands. These pores tend to get clogged since once you start sweating, it needs a place to get released.

Clogged pores can be formed for three main reasons which are,

1. Dead skin cells
2. Excess oil
3. Over-cleansing of the skin

As time goes by, on the skin’s surface excess oil and dead skin can start to build up in small amounts but if the skin is not washed properly then this can all build up in large amounts and get clogged in the pores. You should also not overwash or over-cleanse your skin since doing that can strip the skin of natural oils. If your skin produces too much oil on the skin then this can also cause a build-up of oil and where clogged pores can form.

What Is The Best Treatment For Clogged Pores?

The best treatment for clogged pores would be getting a deep pore cleansing facial done. A deep pore cleansing is done to unclog the person’s pores, especially if their skin is extremely oily or has a lot of acne. The pores are opened up by using steaming or another preferred method. The steaming makes your skin soft and as a result, your clogged pores open up which makes it much easier to clean later. You can exfoliate your skin after the steaming process and this helps smoothen the surface of your skin and any such impurities will be removed from the skin. After exfoliation, there is another process called extraction. For this, a skilled professional will use a tool to remove any blackheads or unclog pores. The process of deep pore cleansing is to help your skin glow and cleans out any excess dirt beneath the surface of your skin as well.

 How long do the results of a Deep Pore Cleanse last?

 The expiration dates are relevant to the container, however, depending on the medication, expiration dates could be set for a definite period of time the following manufacture as well as throughout usage of the medicine. Always store your medications according to the label’s instructions because various packaging offers different ways of storing them.

04. Is it safe to take expired medicines? 

 Some people think that even after a medication’s expiration date, it still works. It might be true, but, even if taking expired prescriptions may not be harmful, you may need to give it some thought. Because of changes in chemical structure or a loss in strength, medicines that have expired may no longer be as effective or safe. Sub-potent antibiotics could perform poorly in treating infections, leading to more severe illnesses. Certain expired medicines are at danger of bacterial development. The safety and effectiveness of the medicines cannot be assured after the expiry date has passed. So it’s definitely better to not take any medicines that have expired.

05. You can store your medicines to maintain their shelf life  

The duration of a medicine’s efficacy and safety is determined by its shelf life or expiration date. This only holds true if the medication is properly stored and is still stored in its original container. A medicine’s shelf life often referred to as its expiration date, is the period of time during which, when stored correctly, the medication will continue to be safe and effective. Moisture, heat, light, and air can all have an impact on a medicine’s effectiveness and safety. If a medicine is used after its expiration date, the active ingredient may be provided at a lesser dose than what is specified on the package. Also, it could result in a higher danger of contamination (for medicines like eye drops). Different medications require different ways of storing them. For instance, it may be necessary to store insulin in the refrigerator. The labels on your prescription should still be carefully read for storage directions, and our pharmacists at Ranchland Pharmacy are always ready to speak with if you have any questions.

Before taking medication that has expired, always check with your doctor or one of our pharmacists at Ranchland Pharmacy to ensure you stay healthy. It’s best to avoid taking any medications past the printed expiration date in general. At Ranchland Pharmacy, you can consult with our pharmacists and get your medicines renewed before taking something that has expired.
