white things coming out of all my pores!
Posted 20 September 2003 - 10:03 AM
after I wash but most obviously after I do a facial mask or those sorts of at home care i look in the mirror and out of every single pore - large and small is a white thing... i extract some of them with my blackhead extractor and the stuff comes out fairly easily .. like little plugs - like blackheads only they are white... but not whiteheads coz the plugs are actually visible...
when the skin dries u cant see them except in the enlargened pores... but i dont want to leave them there so i try to extract as many as i can but since they are coming out almost every pore i have theres literally millions... ??
anyone know what i shld do with these - leave them alone? or what.. is this the gunk in my pores?

these are in addition to the whiteheads.. they appear in other areas with no bump just stuff actually visible from the pore... just like an open blackhead only its not black... theres no skin over it so its not a whitehead

Try washing your face with your usual cleanser, and then take a small amount (maybe 1 tsp or 1/2 tsp) of regular baking soda in your palm. with your damp fingers, tap the baking soda and rub onto your damp face. Try testing this on a small area of your face the first night. Rub a bit, not too long, and then rinse very well to make sure the soda gets off your skin.
i do this maybe once a day, usually at night, in the shower when i wash my face. You could mix it with your cleanser, but you do not want the baking soda near your eye area, which is very sensitive. just use a bit where you need it. Give your skin 24 hours to see if it has an allergic reaction to the baking soda before you try it again.
