FIDDY’S METHOD – PORE FILE
It is a skin care method that takes its name from the Korean skin care blogger fiddy snails and aims to remove large pores and black spots. Fiddy’s method consists of 4 stages. Before I explain the stages, I want to give a brief information about pores. What we call blackheads is actually a mixture of ‘sebaceous filaments’ ie sebum, dead skin, bacteria. This mixture darkens as oxidized by air and sun. We need to regularly clean this mixture, which is filled into our pores. We cannot completely get rid of pores. Even our existing pores; as a result of age progresses, the collagen production in our body decreases and it becomes more evident with our skin, which loses its elasticity. For this reason, we must try other ways. So let’s look at the method.
Steps of the Fiddy’s Method
1. First of all, the skin is cleaned with a double-stage cleanser. In other words, the skin is cleaned and dried first with an oil-based cleanser and then with a water-based cleanser.
2. Then, salicylic acid in the form of at least 2% BHA (Beta Hydroxy acid) is applied to dry skin and left for 20-25 minutes.
3. A clay mask is applied without washing the BHA on our face. This is kept for 10-15 minutes. Then it is washed with water.
4. An oil-based cleanser is applied to the dried skin again and left for 15 minutes more. Then, especially the T area is massaged for 2-3 minutes like peeling. Don’t be surprised if you get black spots at this stage. Isn’t it great ? ♡.♡
So our method ends. After the last step, wash your face with water again, and then you can continue your usual skin care routine. Here I suggest you to use products that soothe your skin. Since this method is a bit aggressive, you should not tire the skin again. Using it once a month is sufficient, but if you have more black spots, you can use it twice a month initially.
NOTE: The Fiddy method may not be suitable for sensitive skin. The products you choose in the stages should be suitable for your skin. You can do an allergy test beforehand.
Stay beautiful ^.~
