An or­di­nary cleanser may not clear black­heads, dead skin, and grime from your skin. You need a deep cleans­ing team that gets right into your pores.

Herworld (Singapore) - - ORBIS SPECIAL -

If you’ve read enough women’s mag­a­zines, you’re prob­a­bly well aware of the need for twice-daily cleans­ing. Ac­cord­ing to ORBIS, how­ever, reg­u­lar daily cleans­ing isn’t enough to zap zits, re­duce dull­ness, and en­sure that your sk­in­care prod­ucts are work­ing op­ti­mally. The Ja­panese brand, which is known for its oil-free prod­ucts, says that stan­dard cleansers are nec­es­sary for daily main­te­nance, but you’ll need ded­i­cated pore care prod­ucts for is­sues such as black­heads, white­heads, deep-down grime, and build-up of dead skin.

Its Special Care range is specically de­signed to solve pore prob­lems gen­tly, with­out harm­ing skin. Even so, there’s no need to use these all on the same day. You may use them more of­ten if you have oily and acne-prone skin.

Clear ker­atin plugs with Pow­der Wash +, $25 for 50g

Black­heads hap­pen when oil and dead skin, which is mostly made of a pro­tein called ker­atin, clump to­gether in­side the pores. Ac­cord­ing to the brand, most reg­u­lar cleansers can’t break down ker­atin, but ORBIS’ Pow­der Wash + uses en­zymes to do just that. The two en­zymes, pro­tease and li­pase, break down pro­tein and oil re­spec­tively, so clogs are dis­solved. The light­weight pow­der lath­ers to a rich foam that’s fun and easy to use.

Re­move stub­born black­heads and white­heads with Care-Na Hot Cool Gel, $23 for 60g

Stub­born black­heads and white­heads are also caused by blocked pores. They oc­cur most of­ten around the T-zone (fore­head, nose, and chin) be­cause that’s where skin is oili­est. To deal with them, ap­ply Care-Na Hot Cool Gel. The black gel heats up to di­late pores, while char­coal pow­der binds to the se­bum and lifts it away. Fine beads in the gel scrub away dead cells, and hamamelis leaf ex­tract helps to rm and tone for smoother skin over time. The gel cools af­ter ve sec­onds to a re­fresh­ing, minty nish to help pores con­tract back to their orig­i­nal size. Rinse off to see your pores cleaned, as if you’d just ap­plied a pore strip!
