Reducing Large Pores on Your Face

The quick solution to reducing large pores on your face are pore minimizers.  Pore minimizers are lotions or primers that is applied on the skin to give the appearance of smaller pores.  They have ingredients in them such as silicones which basically fill in the large pores giving your skin a smooth, even texture and look.  These silicones are nonclogging and does not cause any problems for the skin.  They are commonly found in moisturizers.  These silicone polymers now, not only leave your skin feeling silky-soft, but also have oil absorbing qualities. This is perfect for oily skin, people with large pores.

The pore minimizers now, most come with a mattifying agent, which is great to control surface oils while making your skin look nice and smooth.  The Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector is the one I use right now.  I love it!

Keeping your pores clean is a long term solution for the prevention of large pores. If you have enlarged pores, you have oily skin. Along with large pores and oily skin commonly comes clogged pores. To control this bad-skin snow-ball effect, you must follow a skin care regimen that specifically targets oily skin and pay special attention to your pores and the cleanliness of them.

Having large pores ,you are more at risk of dirt and bacteria getting in them.  If pores are continuously being clogged, they are more likely to stay enlarged.  A happy, small pore is a clean pore.  So, let’s do our best in trying  to keep our pores nice and clean.  I know it’s not always easy.  Speaking from personal experience, You can do everything right and still get the occasional breakout. 

Exfoliate regularly. Removing the dead skin layer on your face is mportant. Your own dead skin cells can be clogging to your skin pores.

Use products containing alpha hydroxy or salicylic acids. They have been efffective topical agents in exfoliating and removing dead skin cells.

Treatments such as steaming, and masks are also great for large pores.  “Steaming Your Face” helps in purifying your skin, thus cleaning out your pores.   Steaming your face help to release toxins in your skin.   The steam  actually opens up your pores, so impurities can be released.

Certain “facial masks” are used to keep excess oil under control and to keep breakouts to a minimum.  A  deep cleasing mask have antibacterial qualities to help with blemishes and prevent new ones from forming.  A clay mask helps in controlling skin’s oils.   

There are products out there that can really help reduce large pores and the problems that come along with them.  Healthier skin with smaller pores is just waiting for you!
