Help, I Have Large Pores!
If you have oily skin and larger than normal pores here are a few solutions to help smooth out your skin. Pores are the openings of oil glands in your skin, so people with bigger and more active oil glands tend to have large pores and rough-looking skin. Although pore size is mainly determined by heredity, there are ways to minimize their appearance.
Enlarged pores can become clogged with oil, dead skin, and bacteria, so it's important to keep your skin clean. Be sure to wash your face before going to bed, especially if you wear makeup. Look for a cleanser with a unique blend of teas: green, white and red which contain anti-oxidants and reduce surface bacteria i.e. Bren New York Perfect Pores Cleansing Cream. Once a week, use Bren New York's Microdermabrasion Cleanser w/ Papaya Enzymes Step 1 of our Microdermabrasion System to remove rough, dead skin and reveal softer, newer skin cells. For best results, avoid scrubs made from walnut shells or apricot pits, which can scratch your skin.
If this does not do the trick, consider using our Step 2 Microdermabrasion Exfoliator w/ Mineral Crystals. This procedure uses fine crystals to exfoliate dead skin cells and help keep blackheads under control. For best results, it should be repeated every two to four weeks.
Bren New York Perfect Pores Cream is a powerful formula that stimulates cellular turn over. The cream contains Alpha-Hydroxy Acids which enable the dead cells to slough away and allows new skin to appear. It is thought that this process speeds up the production of collagen and elastin.
Your dermatologist may also recommend medical treatments that can reduce pore size, including salicylic acid peels and photofacials (which use intense pulsed laser light).
TIP: For large facial pores you many want to apply a silicone based foundation primer to your skin first. Primers give your face the perfect canvas for applying make-up. Bren New York Facial Primer and Colosé Gel Magique Facial Primer are two excellent choices.
