Pores on the face that appear larger than normal typically occur when the skin’s sebaceous glands produce excess oil, causing clogged pores. Also, as skin ages it loses some of its elasticity, which can lead to the appearance of large pores.
Properly caring for your skin is key to preventing clogged pores, which can make pores appear larger in size. Look for non-comedogenic skincare products that deliver lightweight hydration and also work to smooth and mattify skin.
When it comes to minimizing your pores, there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is, it’s impossible to alter the size of your pores. The good news? With the right products, you can make large pores appear smaller. On top of keeping your skin clean and hydrated, using a pressed setting powder that blurs the appearance of pores and doubles as a blotting powder will help you put your best face forward.
To help reduce the look of pores, consider incorporating a pore-refining face toner into your skincare routine. Bye Bye Pores Leave-On Solution features a unique Skin-Mattifying Complex formulated with kaolin clay that works to absorb excess oil and control shine. Another smart choice: An oil-free makeup primer that promises to refine the look of pores with continued use.
