congested skin

Hi! I know that sebaceous filaments are normal and there’s not much you can do about them, but how do you tell the difference between those and congested skin? No matter what I’ve done for my skin over the years, I just feel like I have so many clogged pores!

If it's hardly visible and white (ish) in colour, it's sebaceous filaments if not, you need to find a suitable Salicylic acid product to clear your pores ant keep them that way. I can recommend one gentle daily cleanser to maintain the pores and a peeling solution for a deep clean once a week. There are also many toners out there (2% BHA) but I personally don't like toners and they didn't work for me. Other things to consider is double cleansing, avoiding comedogenic ingredients, using a clay mask 1-2x a week and making sure your skin is hydrated and moisturised so it doesn't need to overproduce sebum that can accelerate the clogging of your pores.
