The Real Reason Your Pores Always Clog (No Matter How Many Facials You Get)

When it comes to self-care, it seems there are unlimited ways to spend your time and money.

“As a beauty editor, I’m in the very privileged position of getting to try out new products and techniques regularly, and my hope is to report honestly on what works and what doesn’t. For the first time in my life, I have gotten regular monthly facials long enough to make a difference to my skin (my current favorites are gua sha with Britta Plug and Danuta’s facial at Rescue Spa, hands down). While my skin is the happiest it’s ever been—it’s clear, smooth, and glowy—keeping my pores unclogged feels like a maintenance game that depends on more than just regular facials. Is it just me, or do pores require seemingly unlimited maintenance?”

Why do pores always seem clogged?

“Pore size is genetic,” said integrative dermatologist Cybele Fishman, M.D. “As we age, all our pores get bigger, regardless of where you started.” Their increased size means that they have the propensity to clog more easily, too.

Diana Yerkes, head esthetician at Rescue Spa, agrees that genetics and diet play a huge role but insists that skin care regimens and environment can make a remarkable difference. “Heat, humidity, and air pollution increase the likelihood that pores will clog,” she told mbg. “For example, my skin was easier to maintain in Seattle than it is in New York City.” Good news for those of us in the northern hemisphere who are moving out of the summer season and into fall and winter, which typically tend to be less humid.



Been There, Tried That: A Facial With The Founder of Rescue Spa


Been There, Tried That: A Facial With The Founder of Rescue Spa

Ahh yes, Rescue Spa. The famous spa name passed around by glamorous New Yorkers. The founder, Danuta Mieloch, is the closest thing to a skin goddess, as clients praise her ability to make their complexion radiant, hydrated, and blemish-free. Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to get a facial with the amazing Danuta, after hearing her praises for quite some time. Literally one week after my appointment, I saw an Instagram story of Danuta posing with none other than Rosie Huntington Whiteley. If it’s good enough for her, it’s most definitely good enough for me!

Danuta’s 5 Post-Summer Skin Tips


Summer is tough on our skin and fall is the perfect time of year to focus on repairing post sun damage, evening out the skin tone, and boosting hydration.


Amp up your exfoliation as the days become shorter the and sun’s rays less intense.

Lotion MC110 N°1

Consider adding the exfoliating booster Mc110 N°1 for smoothing fine lines. Like P50 for the eye area!

Crème aux Acids des Fruits

For baby smooth results! As a one month treatment, use Crème aux Acids des Fruits as your exfoliating night cream.


Refine texture with alpha and beta hydroxy acids and papaya enzymes.


Layering serums is always a great option to target hydration. I start with Elastine Pure followed with Colostrum for deeper hydration.

Elastine Pure

Elastine Pure addresses fine lines and can even be used around the eyes.



Add hydration without the weight! Colostrum is a water-based serum that is even great for congestion prone skin types.


Switch out your day cream for a vitamin c moisturizer and layer with an anti-pollution oxygenating serum.

Luminous Pearl Extreme

Illuminate and protect with Vitamin C.


Sérum Yall~O2

Plump up the skin with hyaluronic acid and regenerating botanicals.


Stimulate your skin’s cells for a more refreshed and younger looking complexion.

Retinol 1 Serum

Vitamin A is a super collagen builder and helps to refine the skin’s texture.

Renewing Pack
For the ultimate refresh, renew your skin with anti-aging DNA and RNA.
