When excess oil gets muddied up with make up and the daily urban grime, the sad outcome is often blocked pores, blackheads and breakouts. But you needn't let pores be a blot on an otherwise perfect complexion - we've got 6 vacuum cleaners to suck up the muck and make clear, flawless skin a reality...

Oust offending debris with Odacité's {Clogged Pores Booster}, which relies on lavender and sebum-identical jojoba, to bind to impurities and lure them from their lairs.

You can minimise the likelihood of blockages with regular (gentle) exfoliation. Oskia's {Micro Exfoliating Balm} contains skin-refining particles of silica, to physically buff surface debris, without aggravating your complexion.

...but if you're plagued by determined plugs of grime, Bliss Spa's Pore-Fector Gadget bothers them into vacating the premises. Just work the vibrating plate over congested areas to shift even deep-rooted grossness...

And if you need a quick fix (which both disguises and corrects), Jouer's Anti-Blemish Matte Primer blurs the visibility of pores, while salicylic acid works to counteract congestion.
