I've been using St. Ives Green Tea scrub which I thought I loved, but lately it looks like the sand particles have been clogging my pores. At first I thought nothing of it, but then I read reviews on it online and saw the same thing reported from other people. I've been getting little bumps on my face that are popable, and when I pop them, hard stuff comes out, it's gross. I even have some hyperpigmentation scars now from poping them.

How do I unclog my pores from this stuff? In the reviews I read it took those people months to get their face back to normal eusa_wall.gif

I'm not sure what to do at this point.

Try and find a cleanser suitable for sensitive skin.
And also check the ingriedients, I find this website handy:

If you are having trouble finding a new cleanser, use oatmeal?
It's 100% natural. http://www.youtube.c...h?v=7e5_RVBwNjE

Oh right, sorry!
Personally for me aspirin masks help unclog my pores.
But I'm not sure if it will get rid of scarring completely.

I'll never put anything St. Ives on my face again.
