Every time I look at the skin pores on my face, they are always clogged with some type of white substance. I'm guessing it's dried skin oil.

I have always had this problem and I don't know what to do. I have tried acne creams, moisturizers, etc and nothing really works.

The only time my pores are not clogged is when I go swimming in the ocean. Directly afterwards, my pores are clean and clear but for only a few hours.

What should I do to unclog my pores and keep them that way? My pores are also rather large too. What can I do to fix that problem.

Do you think my problem is genetic. I don't have the money or time to go see a dermatologist either.

I don't know if that is genetic, how do your relatives' skins look? Maybe a facial scrub, which you can buy at the grocery, can help. Good luck!
