The best way to minimize pore appearance is to ensure they are clear of product and dirt. Here's your 4-step at-home agenda for tiny-looking pores:
This is the number one way to prevent your enlarged pores from stretching further. Give clogged pores a deep clean with a cleanser that's appropriate for your skin type. Flash Foam Cleanserworks for most skin types to give skin gentle daily exfoliation while cleansing to minimize the appearance of pores. Doing so will ensure your skin is clear of any debris that can cause extremely clogged pores, and emphasize their appearance.
Your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells, completely regenerating once every 30 days. As you age, this process slows, and can lead to clogged pores – an issue that will not only make pores appear larger, but also stretch them so they actually are larger! Rev up your skin's natural exfoliation process and uncover a more radiant complexion with a leave-on exfoliator like Quick Refiner or manual microdermabrasion like Pumice Peel. Both will keep pores clear.
For stubborn pores, don't rely on skin-damaging pore strips to remove impurities. Instead, reach for a clay-based facial mask with balancing plant extracts that acts as a vacuum to draw out pore-clogging debris and replenish hydration. For a deep pore purge, apply a stimulating, exfoliating mask 7 days in a row to eliminate impurities.
Excess oil causes large pores, so controlling oil is crucial. Keep pores clear throughout the day by balancing oil production at the source and absorbing excess oil at your skin's surface with an oil control mattifier.
