Wondering how to minimise pores? You’ve come to the right place! While pores play an important role in helping our skin to breathe, it can be frustrating when they appear larger than we want.
With a few new products and fresh skincare tips, we explain how to reduce pores on the face.
What causes large pores?
Before learning how to reduce pores on face, it’s helpful to understand what causes them to appear enlarged.
- Excess sebum
- Dead skin
- Excess sun exposure
- Decreased elasticity
- Clogged hair follicles
- Skin type
When pores become clogged with makeup, impurities or oil, the blockage stretches the pore, causing it to appear larger.
Your genetics typically determine how much oil your skin naturally produces. With the right products and skincare routine, you can help control oil production to prevent excess sebum from blocking pores.
How to reduce pores on face
While it isn’t possible to get rid of large pores altogether, you can reduce their appearance with some skincare and product changes. Here’s how to minimise the appearance of pores for a purified, refreshed look.
Cleanse twice a day
If you’re wondering how to unclog pores, washing your face morning and night is the best place to start. It helps to remove unwanted makeup, oil, and impurities that are clogging your pores and causing them to appear bigger. We recommend using a gel-based face wash to thoroughly cleanse the skin for a clear, supple base.
Our Purifying Charcoal Gel Cleanser is infused with absorbent Bamboo Charcoal to remove excess oil and balance the skin, as well as Moringa, Coconut, Rooibos, and Willowherb Extracts to assist in keeping skin clean, clear and refreshed.
Apply a small amount to moist hands and lather with water. Gently massage into the skin and rinse thoroughly with water for clean, happy pores.
