A Long Time Ago in a Pore Deep, Deep Inside…

Culture the Stratum Corneum -角質培養-


Hi, there! Thank you for coming to my crazy pore blog. I’m Kozue, pore buster from Tokyo.

I was about to give up.

Since I found my pores were bigger than those of my friends, I had a fight against the plugs in them. Because I thought that the root cause was the gang itself.


Once I get rid of them, the pores will gradually shrink, I believed. Therefore, I tried all the methods to empty the pores.


But you know, no matter how many times I clear the pores, they get clogged again.

And clogged

It was just when I was about to give up, I happened to find the web site about skin care which told me “LEAVE THEM”.

Don’t touch!?


Do you want me to leave them as they are? I’m sure they will grow bigger if I leave them. Who can live with these dirty big clogged pores? You are joking, right?

DO NOT squeeze, vacuum, pick, peel off nor do any kind of way in cleaning the pores.

They even say

Don’t touch your skin.

How can I care for my skin without touching? Is this a training method to become a psychic? Yes, it’s time to use the force, Kozue. Let go, Kozue!

Kakushitsu Baiyo “角質培養”

This method of skin care is called “Kakushitsu Baiyo” in Japanese.Literal translation maybe “Culture the Stratum Corneum”.

This is not a suspicious method but a serious and suggestive theory which is based on experiences of many people at “2 channel” the biggest anonymous bulletin board in Japan. Hmm…sounds suspicious!

I had been into this method for more than three years and learned a lot about skin. Please let me explain what this “Kakushitsu Baiyo” is all about in the next article. Until then, I will find a better translation of this method.

Take care of your pores!
