Large Pores? How Pore Minimizers Work

Pores are a fact of life, in fact, without them, our skin wouldn’t be skin at all. If you suffer from large pores you are probably always looking for makeup that covers and a solution that works.

Numerous factors could be causing large pores, including genetics, but even genetics can be fought with the right product and ingredients. Large pores and blackheads can be caused by oily skin, sun damage and consistent care of your face.

Essentially, large pores are caused by a build up of dead skin cells and bacteria. If you take those away, you will reduce your pore size.

Look for the following ingredients when purchasing products:

  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids/Beta Hydroxy Acids – They are what they sound like, acids that you put on your face. These acids will help remove the dead skin cells on the outer layer of your skin to reveal newer, fresher skin beneath.
  • Vitamin A – Sometimes called Retinol, Vitamin A keeps the skin cells from sticking together and hardening. It also works as a face exfoliator. Be sure to wear a high SPF when using Vitamin A as it makes you sensitive to the sun’s rays. (View all of our Vitamin A products)
  • Azelaic Acid – Often an ingredient in acne treatments, Azelaic Acid fight bacteria that can cause breakouts, including blackheads.

Using the above will help you to reduce oil production, exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce sun damage and remove debris from the skin – all of which tighten pores. All of these actions combined will help you on your road to smaller pores.

These will also help:

  • Use a Clay Mask – As the clay dries, it will literally “suck” the debris and oil from your skin and pores (our favorite is the Camphor Pore Minimizing Mask)
  • Clean Consistently – Leaving makeup and sunscreen on overnight will add to the debris and oil on your face, making your pores larger
  • Exfoliate – Use a Clarisonic Skin Care Brush or do a facial peel to remove dead skin cells. Removal of these cells will help control face oil – a main contributor to large pores.
  • Stay Out of The Sun – Wear sunscreen and a hat. Sun damage contributes to build up and hardening of the skin, both of which contribute to large pores.
