We can’t eliminate our pores no matter how frustrated it makes us feel because aside from it being impossible, our pores also play an essential part in making our skin naturally moisturized. But don’t fret because there are ways to minimize our pores and make our skin look better. Here are some tips to check out:
Use a salicylic acid (BHA) exfoliant, in gel or liquid form, with absolutely no extraneous irritating ingredients. Gently exfoliating skin with a BHA can remove excess skin cells from the surface of the face (so they don’t build up in the pore) and exfoliate inside the pore (to improve its shape), allowing for a more even flow of oil.
Anti-aging bonus: This step also reduces wrinkles and builds collagen! BHA is preferred to AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid) because BHA exfoliates not only on the skin’s surface but also inside the pore, where the clogs form. Source: PaulasChoice
Exfoliate. “To get blackheads and clogged pores clean, you must get extractions from an experienced esthetician on a regular basis, ideally monthly. Without a doubt, nothing will clean them out more effectively than manual extractions—not even a facial cleansing brush.” —Renée Rouleau Source: MarieClaire
Take care about the type of makeup you use and ensure to clean your makeup off at night. Don’t use thick, heavy makeup to hide marks, even out an uneven skin tone, or conceal large pores as the texture of such cosmetics can aggravate your skin problems. Also, make sure to remove entire makeup every night. Neglecting to remove all of your makeup every night can further block your already clogged pores, thereby intensifying blackheads and white bumps, and that will result into a dull-looking skin. I don’t think you will like to get into such a nightmare! Source: NaturalBeautyTips
