Alex Answers: How to Actually Clean Out Your Pores for Good

And The Best Oil for the Oil Cleansing Method Ever


Skin problems can be some of the most frustrating aspects of outwardly health.  How come? Well, for one, skin problems are nearly impossible to hide…especially when they’re on your face.  Secondly, the usual recommendations for clearing up the skin don’t always reliably work (I’m being conservative here, I’m pretty sure some would say that they really don’t work at all).

Like I say in the video, our external skin condition is a direct reflexion of what is going on inside the body, especially the gastrointestinal tract.  Luckily, there are plenty of things we can do to improve our skin, gut, and overall health! This includes removing allergens, eating nutrient dense foods, and fixing hormonal imbalances (this last one is especially important!).

In addition to lifestyle changes, we have a lot of options for switching up our skin care products to make them less chemically laden and irritating to the skin. In this video, I detail the exact 3-step process I use to clean out my pores for good…and keep my skin super clean, moisturized, and flake-free in the process!

Links to products I talk about in the video:

Burdock Root Oil (the kind I get from Russia)
Burdock Root Oil (just another version)
Bentonite Clay (and here’s a link to my Super Green Cleansing Clay Mask)
Raw Honey (you can find local raw honey for pretty cheap just about anywhere)

  1. Love this suggestion for pore cleansing method! I’m looking for the links to the products you use so I can try it out!

  2. I can’t view the movie for some reason…is there anywhere else I can find this info? It’s exactly what I need! 😉

    • Hm, are you having problems with viewing it in the post or in YouTube? What’s the error that’s coming up? Hopefully with some more info I can help troubleshoot!

    • I use the Bee Clean Face Wash from the recipes on this blog. I actually use several things kind of on a rotation (the honey scrub ) but all the recipes are in the DIY Skin section 🙂

  3. Love the video thank you! Question: do you do the first step the clay mask on cleansed skin? If so what do you use to cleanse before the clay mask?

    • Thanks so much! Glad you found it helpful 🙂 I don’t cleanser first since it can be a lot for the skin that way. If you wanted, you could do another round of honey before you did the clay mask actually!

    • I got mine at Whole Foods but I’ve seen it at the Vitamin Shoppe and smaller natural stores as well. And as always, Amazon is a great option 🙂

  4. Hi, Alex

    Am very interested to try this one out. However. I’m missing one ingredient. Is there anything I could use as an alternative for the amla powder? Something that you think would mimic those healing properties? If not I’ll simply order some and wait. But I’m antsy. Lol.

    • Hi Daniel! I definitely hear you on the antsy bit 🙂 I’m no good at waiting for ingredients either. You could try replacing the Amla with some cinnamon? I haven’t tried that but I imagine it would be pretty amazing (and actually now that I think about it, I’m going to try it this weekend too!). Let me know how it goes for you!

  5. I kNOW everyone wants to sell products online, but the frustrating part is ,A. I want something tangible to observe– I Hate waiting for a delivery, .B. if I don’t like it, I am stuck with it, unless I want to ship it back,– C. More time and effort = my loss. D. Still no product available, sold out! – What is the answer?

    • I’ve just found that it works the best! I think it’s just the composition of the oil in comparison to what the body makes in our pores…but lots of people use other oils and like it so it might be personal to a certain extent 🙂
