Clear, healthy skin is the ultimate beauty ideal - if you ask us here at MYSA. However, our genetics and lifestyle can interfere with the radiant complexion we wish for: we’ve all experienced clogged pores and dullness. Irritated skin and dryness. Enlarged pores and breakouts. A healthy lifestyle, hydration, and a balanced diet are the foundation of healthy skin, but proper skincare routines also play a significant role in skin look and feel. Today, we’re talking about a skin refining treatment that’s efficient on blackheads and improves skin texture.   

Three Steps to Unclogged Pores and Refined Skin

If you've ever had a problem with clogged pores, chances are you tried a blackhead removal mask. Purifying facial masks often contain clay because of its ability to attract and absorb excess oil and impurities from the pores. When pores get clogged with excess dead skin cells and oil, but remain open - the impurities oxidize with air and become black, forming blackheads


This is where clay face masks come into play, acting like magnets to draw impurities from the pores. However, to complete the regimen, we suggest fortifying the clay mask treatment with another effective, non-invasive procedure: microdermabrasion pore vacuum.  


Microdermabrasion gently removes dead skin cells and stimulates blood flow and collagen production, while vacuum suction aids in the exfoliation process by immediately suctioning away loosened dead skin cells on the skin's surface and extracting impurities from the pores. These two treatments combined can do a lot to clear up the impurities and refine the complexion. Proper hydration should always be the final step after deep cleansing and microdermabrasion pore vacuum. Here are our suggestions for the best blackhead remover, skin resurfacing, and deep hydration.  

Step One: KIWI™ Active Pore & Blackhead Mask

One of the best products for blackheads is this creamy formulated mask that softens skin and loosens impurities accumulated and hardened in the pores over time. This pore-cleansing mask is the perfect prep step before using microdermabrasion pore vacuum, as these two treatments combined bring better skin-purifying results.  


The blackheads mask contains moisturizing Jojoba, Meadowfoam and Baobab Seed Oils that soften the skin and the impurities hardened in the pores, which helps with easier extraction of the impurities in the second step.  


Detoxifying Kaolin and Bentonite clays also help to loosen and lift impurities trapped deep in pores while absorbing excess oil and dirt. Activated charcoal attracts the impurities and minimizes the pores. Soothing Cica (Centella Asiatica) works as an anti-inflammatory to help calm irritated skin, reduce redness, and speed up skin healing process. 


We love the mask because it not only loosens and lifts up the impurities trapped in the pores, but it also locks in moisture, leaving the skin soft, nourished and supple. It’s a great choice for dry and irritated skin, as it reduces redness, and does not leave your skin feeling tight and dry, like other blackhead masks.  It’s formulated with 98% natural origin ingredients, vegan, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and suitable for all skin types.

Step Two: KIWI™ Derma Diamond Microdermabrasion Pore Vacuum

After rinsing KIWI™ Active Pore & Blackhead Mask, the treatment continues with microdermabrasion and vacuum suction. KIWI™ derma is designed to exfoliate dead skin cells and encourage healthy skin renewal with its Adamas diamond tips. 


Vacuum suction aids in exfoliation by immediately suctioning away dead skin cells and extracting impurities from the pores (already softened with KIWI™ Pore Mask).  


T-Sonic™ massage combines with microdermabrasion and pore vacuum to stimulate blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which helps to trigger collagen production and the skin’s natural healing process, as well as temporarily dilate pores. By removing the barrier of dead, dull skin cells and temporarily dilating pores, active ingredients in the topicals you apply after using this device penetrate deeper into the skin where they work best. The treatment, in the end, improves skin texture by revealing fresh and radiant skin below the dull and damaged skin. Closeup of Adamas diamond tip of FOREOs KIWI derma microdermabrasion device

Step Three: SUPERCHARGED™ HA+PGA Triple-Action Intense Moisturizer

After microdermabrasion, your skin might feel thirsty and tight, and it’s important to properly hydrate, even a couple of times per day if your skin feels like it. We recommend luxuriously rich yet fast-absorbing SUPERCHARGED™ HA+PGA Triple-Action Intense Moisturizer, clinically proven to increase skin moisture by 40% in just 15 mins. 


This gel cream is formulated to provide long-lasting hydration, improve elasticity, prevent moisture loss, and strengthen the skin barrier.  Hydrating Hyaluronic and Polyglutamic Acids help draw in and seal moisture in the cells, and nourishing Squalane helps reduce transepidermal water loss, thus minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Moisturizing Panthenol strengthens the skin barrier and reduces redness, while antioxidant Vitamin E helps your skin fight against free-radical damage.  FOREO SUPERCHARGED HA+PGA Triple Action Intense Moisturizer on a white surfaceThe whole treatment is designed to leave your complexion clear, unclogged, and refined, with a visibly healthy, youthful glow.
