Pore Minimizing Daily Routine


Enlarged pores are tough to deal with and can seem to be impossible to get rid of. They are unsightly and covering them with make-up, although a temporary solution, only worsens the condition.

Pores are not bad
Pores are essential pathways for oils to reach the skins surface. At the bottom of the pore is a sebaceous gland, which helps keep skin moisturized and protected by producing oils. This natural process is essential in keeping the skin soft and supple.

What causes increased pores size?

Oily skin
Individuals with overactive oil glands and oily skin tend to have larger pores. With excessive oil production, the pore become blocked, resulting in inflammation within the pore. The inflammation and extra oils causes build-up which stretches the walls of the pore canal resulting in larger pores.

Excess exposure to sunlight
Sunlight has been known to damages the collagen and elastin in the skin, reducing elasticity in the skin, leading to increased pore size.

The slow degradation of collagen, which maintains the skin’s supple texture, results in lloose skin that cane extenuate pore size.

What daily routine should I follow to improve this condition?

  • First of all, do not over wash your skin. Washing the face can result in your skin actually producing excess oils, ultimately making your skin's surface greasier and increasing the pore size.
          Try this: Wash your face once a day - twice for oily skin. Washing at night is very important, in order to take off the grim of the day before your skin repairs it's self while you sleep.
