Enlarged pores, are a not part of the natural aging process. These seemingly annoying imperfections can and should be controlled. So, let’s take some swift action.
Please note that the size of your pores depends on a great variety of factors, including hormones, sweating, sebum constitution, and even the food you consume during the day. Therefore, if you want to deal with this problem effectively, you will need to address each of these issues simultaneously. Today, we offer you a general guide that will tell you how to erase pores effectively. If however, the cause is hormonal imbalance, the treatment will require medication and you should consult a dermatologist in this case.
- Develop an appropriate skin care routine.
Proper skin care is your most potent weapon in this battle. Regardless of the exact reasons contributing to your enlarged pores, you will need to use specialized cosmetic products to deal with them. Use a soft cleanser twice a day (morning and night). This will allow you to remove excess sebum, as well as the dirt and bacteria that can get inside your pores and make them inflamed. If your skin type allows it, exfoliate twice a week. This is usually fine, as enlarged pores are mostly a problem associated with oily skin. PureLx Perfection Cleanser Micro-Dermabrasion Scrub works well because it “polishes” the skin and tightens pores. Don’t forget to use a specialized tonic after cleansing. There are products available on the market, which are designed specifically to tighten enlarged pores.
- Choose the right cream.
Keeping your skin hydrated and nourished at all times should be your new motto if you really want to solve the problem of enlarged pores. The right cream for you must contain vitamins C and A, as they are essential for healthy skin. If your skin is healthy, your pores will be virtually invisible, as this is their natural state. PureLx Perfection Anti-Aging Cream is the perfect product for this.
- Don’t forget about sunscreen.
The damage from UV rays is one of the major contributing factors in causing enlarged pores. Sunlight affects the collagen in your skin, which damages the tissue, and can lead to the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and huge pores. You must apply sunscreen every day before you go outside, regardless of the season or weather. PureLx Perfection Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF30 Broad Spectrum is the ideal go to product! It moisturizers, gives you flawless coverage and protects you from harmful UVB and UVA rays. Choose from Light, Medium or Dark colors.
- Try some professional treatments.
If the problem is serious, and mere cosmetic products aren’t enough to achieve good results, you should try specialized professional treatments. Fraxel, Omnilux, and microdermabrasion are some therapies to consider. The tools used for these treatments, their effects, and their cost vary greatly. You will need to consider all these factors and consult a dermatologist before making the final decision.
- Use makeup efficiently.
Before you manage to solve the problem from the inside, you can use makeup to hide your pores. This is not a difficult thing to do nowadays, as there is a great variety of products designed to help you achieve this very goal. A tip worth remembering is that you should always start your makeup routine by applying a primer. This will fill your pores and provide a smooth surface for the foundation. If your skin is really oily, wearing foundation isn’t always an option. In this case, you should go for a CC (color correction) cream. This product is great for both moisturizing, and masking imperfections. It “adapts” to your natural skin tone, which helps you create an image of perfect health and beauty.
