I am somewhat obsessed with unclogging my pores, and over the years, I've tried tons of products that claim to do this, from blemish extractors to Pond's Clear Pore Strips. Though I'm always looking for new tricks, I now have an arsenal of unclogging products I use in combination, and one of those is the Biore Self-Heating Mask ($6.99 for eight masks).
This "one-minute facial" is a great way to prep your skin and open up your pores before using a blemish extractor. Plus, unlike some more indulgent and complicated masks, it's very quick and easy to use, so you have no excuse not to. For more on why I like this product,
First of all, the box says it contains eight single-use capsules, but each capsule has enough mask for two facials. To use, you lightly wet your face and rub the gelatinous mask on your skin. The gel heats up upon contact with the water, producing a warm sensation as you rub it in. After a minute, the mask will turn dark blue, signaling that it's ready to rinse it off.
It will leave your face feeling smooth and silky, and better yet, it will open your pores so they'll be easy to clear out with a blemish extractor. It's a really fast way to get a little skin indulgence.
