Tips and Tricks to Minimizing Large Pores

Although you can’t make your pores disappear, there are things that you can do to make them appear smaller.

The size of your pores are genetic and depends on your skin type. Oily or combination skin usually, especially those who struggle with acne tend to have larger pores since the bigger the pore, the more oil is produced.

  1. Take a look at your skincare
    It is possible that the products within your skincare regimen contain products that clog your pores making them appear larger.
  2. Cleanse your skin
    Remove make up and any build-up, sebum, and dirt. Make sure that you really clean your skin! Build-up of sebum and dirt can cause pores to enlarge and look so much worse.
  3. Incorporate acids into your skincare
    AHAs and BHAs so wonders for penetrating, exfoliating and cleaning out your pores!
  4. Wear Sunscreen
    Sun damage can cause pores to appear larger by making your skin look less supple. Apply a sunscreen that is specifically formulated for the face as they will contain less oils and will feel lighter.
  5. Use retinoid
    From smoothing wrinkles and brighten dark spots, to stopping acne and shrinking pores, Retinol can do so much for the skin. It has the ability to increase your skin’s collagen production and decrease its oil production at the same time. This means that the skin will be smoother, have less acne, breakouts, blackheads, and tighter pores.
  6. Use an oil free, non-comedogenic moisturizer
    The wrong moisturizers can completely destroy any progress you’ve made with your pores. By using a moisturizer that is made for oily to combination skin, oil free and non-comedogenic, it will keep the pores from stretching. Find out ingredients what ingredients are causing those clogged pores!
