Enlarge pores gives the impression of rough frail mature looking skin. Whereas fine pores gives the impression of smooth youthful looking skin. So in our quest to look beautiful, we want to reduce the size of those large skin holes as much as possible.
Enlarged pores usually appear on the T-zone - forehead, chin and especially around the nose and a concern mainly during puberty and aging skin. Large pores is a frustrating problem for many women.
Enlarged pores isn’t necessarily such a bad thing. It is a warning sign given by the skin telling us that the pores are blocked or inflamed, it’s not getting enough nutrients or vitamins, or the skin is becoming too oily, and treatment needs to done to deal with the imbalance.
Large pores can be unsightly to look at and can impact the overall appearance of your skin. Minimizing the pore size should be a goal for any women who wants to look their best.
Enough talk, lets get straight into the combat zone and start minimize those oily holes.
Lets start by attacking those large pores with the grainy stuff.
The ‘grainy stuff’ will always be your ally when it comes to minimizing those pore size. Most enlarged pores are caused by pore blockages. A good scrub or exfoliator will help to remove any blockages caused by dead skin cells, dried excess oil, excessive use of makeup or dry skin, allowing sebum to flow freely and polishing off any impurities that’s clogging them.
Stop the pores from having any chance to enlarge by eradicating the root cause.
Nothing beats a facial mask for deep-pore cleansing action. A detoxifying treatment mask will get to the root of those pores sucking out any excess oil and impurities within and replacing it will beneficial nutrients and moisture. On top of this, a mask targeted for oily skin should have a tightening effect reducing the pore size. You should see a noticeable refinement with your pores after a good mask treatment. For those with oily skin, a facial mask should be done 2 – 3 times per week.
Keep the pores (hole) clean and clear with an air raid.
It’s time for some air attack with a bit of Alpha and Beta action. Alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids exfoliate skin to prevent dead skin cells from building up and clogging pores, but while alpha hydroxy acid is water soluble only, beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid) is oil soluble, so it’s able to really seep into the sebum-packed pore, exfoliating the dead skin cells built up inside. Look for products that contains salicylic acid or glycolic acid.
If the battlefield is too rough, it’s time to bring in the heavy artillery – Lets roll in the Microdermabrasion Machinery
Microdermabrasion significantly lessens the appearance of pores by “roughening up” skin, therefore loosening the dead skin that clogs pores. It also stimulates collagen so skin looks really smooth. There are home micro-dermabrasion kits available for personal use, but I highly recommend having it done by a experienced professional beautician.
Lets do battle in the 21st century
Laser resurfacing is becoming a popular cosmetic procedure that is very effecting in treating enlarged pores. One of the most expensive ways to do battle but one that has very effective results.
Lets call in the troops for ground action.
Regular cleansing, toning and moisturising is a must for every woman who has large pores. Find the right combination of skin care products for your skin type and develop a good skin care routine and strategy. With patience and dedication, your battle success to achieve clear skin and tighter pores will manifest very soon.
