How To Make My Pores Smaller

Are you obsessed with the size of your pores? You’re not alone. As a Skin Therapist I am always asked - how do I get rid of or make my pores look smaller? I want poreless skin!

Let's start with why pores clog...

Well, I have good and bad news for you.

The bad news is that you can’t make your pores shrink or disappear completely. They are part of your genetic makeup, so you can blame mum or dad for this.

The good news is, we can help reduce the appearance of pores by deep cleansing and exfoliating.

Pores are the opening of hair follicles. In each pore, there is a sebaceous gland that produces sebum (oil), which keeps your skin lubricated. They tend to be more noticeable on specific parts of your face, especially on your chin, nose, and forehead.

Pores are typically more noticeable on oily skin types and smaller on dry skin types.

What other factors contribute to large pores?

Another factor that contributes to enlarge the appearance of pores is clogging. Which happens due to excess dirt, grim, products and the build-up of dead skin cells.

Age is another aspect to be considered. As we get older, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity, causing it to sag, leaving our pores looking larger due to the loss of structure.

Lastly, the ultimate component of skin damage: the sun. Damage from the sun causes free radicals in our skin to break down collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin may again sag and cause your pores to appear larger.


The good news about pores!

There are a few things that you can do to minimise the appearance of your pores.

1. Deeply and gently clear your pores every day with a cleanser that has AHA's or Enzymes in it.

2. Exfoliate regularly

4. Apply SPF every single day
