Anyone want to guess what the answer is? Chemical and physical exfoliation!
Enlarged pores occur most frequently on our nose, or around it. They can appear as dark dots, light dots, but actually, these enlarged pores are little holes that cast shadows on your skin. Who knew?
What Causes Enlarged Pores
The root of the issue is excess oil which causes all sorts of problems, doesn't it? As the oil comes to the surface of your skin, it mixes with dead cells; if it mixes with too many, you get a clogged pore. And, unfortunately, the oil gland keeps making more oil, so the pores expand and expand and expand and... well you get the point.
How To Diminish the Look of Enlarged Pores
So, how do we keep our pores pristine? The magic method is a combination of physical and chemical exfoliation. At the end of your shower, gently massage a granular cleanser into the areas of your skin with enlarged pores for no more than 10-15 seconds. Rinse it off and pat dry. Then apply a small, light layer of a chemical exfoliant, one that has glycolic (5-10% strength) or salicylic (2% strength) active ingredients.
Do this everyday, once a day, and after two weeks you will see a difference. Or wait, I should say you won't see your pores... well either way, you can count on brighter, more beautiful skin with this exfoliation super duo.
