    Clogged pores
    An_258882 posted:
    I am 13 and have clogged pores. I consider my skin normal but I get black heads, white heads, and clogged pores. Whenever I see one I am tempted to pick it because usually when I do, a plug (what I call them) comes out. I call them that because they are liquid like it you were to pop a white head. I don't know what it is but I don't know how to stop. I also get black heads and clogged pores around my lips and they are really irritated. I don't know what products to use because I don't want to spend a lot. I have tried proactive too. Please help me.
