A 19-year-old female asked:
Is there anyway to completely extract everything from your pores?

Pores: It is normal for the pores in the skin to produce oil (sebum). While sebum may be pushed out (extractor) or "stripped" with otc strip tape type products, the results are only temporary. See a dermatologist to address your skin complexion concerns and discuss treatment options.
