A Model's Secrets: How To Treat Large Pores

Spring is the time of year we want to reveal our skin, wear less makeup (or at least look like it), and have a healthy glow to our complexion.  One of the biggest concerns is large pores around the t-zone area of the nose, forehead, chin and especially the inner cheek areas, making it difficult to apply makeup and keep it in place, and being notoriously difficult to conceal. 

Pores encircle tiny hair follicles allowing the release of oils, cooling the skin.  There are several factors which cause enlarged pores and identifying their cause helps to know what to do to minimize them.  Genetics are a major cause and are passed down through generations.  Thicker skin has more difficulty releasing oils and sebum through the pores and will easily clog and become congested, causing  blackheads. Irritation can also cause stress on the skin resulting in larger pores.  Oil and dirt can settle into the pores, clogging and putting stress on them.  Aging skin begins to slow production of collagen and elastin, causing the skin’s elasticity to weaken and stretch the pores open.  Sun damage has the same effect.  

There are ways to treat and minimize enlarged pores, revealing a healthier, younger complexion, and more even skin tone.  Start now and your skin will be glowing in not time, leaving winter skin far behind.  Here are my top step by step product choices to shrink pores:

Cleanse:  Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser  - gentle and clarifying cleanser to remove all makeup, pollution and oils; use morning and evening. 

Treatment Mask:  Boscia Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask - peel off mask that removes blackheads and oil using activated charcoal; use twice per week.

Alpha Lipoic Acid and DMAE: Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer  - gently exfoliates and tightens pores; use one cotton ball soaked in product after cleansing, both morning and evening.

Anti-oxidant serum:  Skin Inc. Vitamin C Serum Rebalance & Tackle Pores - vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin E have anti-inflammatory properties that calm and protect, while increasing collagen production to strengthen skin; apply two to three drops twice daily before moisturizer

Retinol:  Dermadoctor Picture Porefect - specifically formulated to treat enlarged pores and refine skin tone; apply twice daily before moisturizer, being certain to wear a high SPF sunscreen to protect treated skin from sunburn.
