If you want to achieve your best flawless and fresh face, you need to pay special attention to your pores. Large pores make your face look tired and add years to your appearance.
Gorgeous smooth skin with pores that aren’t noticeable is possible. Here are simple ways you can achieve pore-fection by minimizing pores and ending up with a beautiful, bright and glowing face.
Know Your Skin
Your pore size and how they appear on your skin is mostly determined by your family history and genetics. Additionally, if you’ve struggled with acne or other skin problems, your pores may appear larger.
People with dryer skin and more fine lines often have smaller pores and smoother skin surfaces. Those with oily skin or combination skin may have pores that appear larger, but there are plenty of tips and tricks to keep them under control.
Start With a Clean Face
First, effective skin care starts with a clean canvas, your face. Use a cleanser that removes dirt, makeup and oil to keep your pores from being blocked.
Cleanse your face twice a day for maximum benefits, once in the morning and once in the evening. Choose a product that contains alpha hydroxy acid or salicylic acid to help remove the oil that could be clogging your pores.
Be Consistent With Sunscreen
Next, make sure you’re consistently putting sunscreen on every day, even during the colder months. If you’re not protecting your skin, you could end up with sun damage that could impact your pores and make them appear larger.
Choose a sunscreen that offers broad spectrum protection, such as TIZO 2 Facial Mineral Sunscreen. Liberally apply several times a day to get the best results and keep the harmful rays of the sun from impacting your pores.
Focus on Exfoliation
Another key part of minimizing your pores is exfoliation. Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead layer of skin and revealing the smooth, clear skin underneath.
One effective exfoliation method is to use a peel, which you apply to your skin and scrub or peel off after several minutes on your face. DERMA-E Overnight Peel works by exfoliating your skin overnight while you sleep, giving you a fresh, glowing look in the morning.
Stop Popping Pimples
It’s also important to avoid any bad habits that may be damaging your skin and impacting your pores’ appearance. Popping pimples and blackheads may be doing more harm than good and leave your skin with large acne scars.
Instead, it’s best to leave your pimple alone or use a product with benzoyl peroxide to treat it. It may take a little longer for the pimple to diminish in size, but your skin will thank you for it later.
Avoid Heavy Makeup
Finally, your makeup choices also can help reduce the size of pores or make them look more noticeable. Before applying makeup, consider using a pore reducing product or something that helps brighten your skin, such as PCA Skin Intensive Brightening Treatment.
It’s best to avoid heavy makeup and using too much powder or foundation to help your pores look smoother. Don’t leave makeup on your face overnight or use dirty makeup applicators and brushes if you want to have a fresher looking face.
