Pore size is a common concern and can be a constant struggle for some. I am committed to helping you tackle this issue. Read on for some easy ways to say bye-bye to enlarged pores and hello to glowing skin!
Let’s face it, these pores won’t get unclogged by themselves. You need to work at it daily. To slough off the unwanted dead skin that clogs your pores and leads to breakouts, I recommend using your Clarisonic 2x daily.
Monthly facials are essential for those of you with enlarged pores as extractions are a girl’s best friend. It’s the best way to get the gunk out of your pores. Extractions at home can damage your pores so leave it to the experts!
I also recommend having a monthly chemical peel. I love PCA Skin Peels. They are gentle and won’t leave your skin red or irritated.
At Home Facials
If you can’t fit monthly facials into your budget/schedule, follow these steps at home to resurface your skin and unclog those pores. Use a good exfoliating mask 1x a week to remove dead skin cells – look for products that contain salicylic acid or glycolic acid that prevent build up. I recommend following this with a hydrating enzyme mask for hydration. It’s a mini-me home facial – gets rid of the old skin and helps reveal the new skin!
Incorporate the gold standard in shrinking those pores, Retin A or retinol products, into you regime. I can’t say this enough, if you aren’t using retinol in your products, you should be. Not only does it resurface your skin, additional benefits of retinol use include; plumping up the collagen production in deeper layers of your skin, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and hey, it shrinks your pores!
Last but not least, I love primers. Using a Primer creates a barrier between your skin and your make-up, protecting your pores and making your skin look flawless.
So, follow these easy tips and your skin will be smooth and your pore size will be diminished in no time.
Cheers to great skin!
