Everyone wants perfectly smooth skin that is free from visible pores. Unfortunately, large pores often stand in the way of having that.
While it is impossible to get rid of large pores, there are some things you can do make them appear smaller.
Keep your face clean
Oil and dirt build up can clog your pores and make them appear bigger. If you’re struggling with large pores, then you need to constantly keep your skin and pores clean.
Make sure that you wash your face with a gentle cleanser twice a day, especially before bedtime. Never sleep with makeup on. Also, clean your makeup brushes regularly.
Keep your skin extra hydrated
Healthy, hydrated skin appears plumper. You can start by applying a hydrating serum and moisturizer.
You should never skip moisturizer, even if you have oily skin. Keep in mind that moisturizer is designed to improve your skin’s hydration by adding water to it. Just because you have oily skin, it doesn’t mean that your skin has enough water. Also, don’t forget to increase your fluid intake. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water a day. Your skin and body will thank you for it.
Shield your skin from the sun
Prolonged sun exposure can thicken the skin, which leads to bigger pores. It also breaks down your skin’s collagen, leaving you with less supple skin.
Protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen. UV protection is key to minimizing pores in the long term. Slather on some sunscreen every morning. Not only will it protect your skin from sun damage, it can also help minimize your pores for good.
If you have naturally large pores, exfoliating can help. Exfoliating 2 times a week is a quick and gentle way to get oil and dead skin cells out of congested pores. It can stop pores from having to expand to hold extra oil; hence, keep them looking smaller.
Fall in love with primer
While waiting for results to kick in, you may want to use a primer. A primer can neutralize redness and blur the appearance of pores while simultaneously keeping your makeup on your face for as long as possible.
Blur your pores with a help of a primer for an instantly smooth-looking foundation. You can wear it alone or under makeup.
