FAQ: How can I get rid of congestion?

Q: “I have a lot of congestion in my skin. How can I get rid of it?”

I think most of us suffer from congested skin at some point in our lives, but pollution and other environmental factors can make it appear more visible.


One of the best ways to tackle clogged pores and blackheads is by exfoliating once or twice a week. This helps to remove dead surface skin cells and also helps to boost skin cell renewal.

Our Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator is a gentle but effective way to buff away any impurities. It is 100% micro-bead free, using natural jojoba beads that roll across the surface of the skin without causing tearing or irritation.

When we skip exfoliation these dead skin cells sit on the surface of the skin. This means when we apply other products, like our moisturiser, the product can’t penetrate the skin properly and this can lead to congestion.

Another product I always recommend to help ease congestion is our Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask. It not only exfoliates by gently dissolving the ‘glue’ between dead skin cells but also helps to draw out impurities for clearer skin.
