It is not possible to close pores but we can minimise the appearance of pores with our skincare routine. Pores can be caused because of excess sebum production and less elasticity because of ageing. Pores can collect oil, dirt and makeup residue on the skin surface and these impurities can easily clog the pores.
So it is very important to clean the face. Don’t use bar soap or other skincare products that clog pores. Even the sun damage makes the pores seem enlarged. Hot and cold water will not change the apparent size of pores, it is a myth.
The skincare routine to minimise the pores
Step 1: Cleansing:
Cleansing is the first step in your skincare routine to minimise pores' appearance. Using Salicylic Acid Face Wash helps to unclog pores and purify the skin. It helps wipe off daily toxins and get your skin clean, pure and smooth as silk.
Step 2: Exfoliate
Using the Clay Mask can temporarily help to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores due to their oil-absorbing properties. Using the BHA is able to exfoliate inside the pores. So that it minimises the appearance of pores. Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells and will unclog the pores.
Step 3: Using Niacinamide Serum
Niacinamide can help to tighten up the look by boosting skin’s healthy quality.
Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in the skin to help visibly minimize enlarged pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dullness and strengthen a weakened surface. It is also known as vitamin B3.
Step 4: Moisturize
Moisturisation helps to control the natural oils at a good level, reducing the chances of your sebum production. Using Ceramide cream for moisturising helps the pores seem less visible.
Step 5: Sunscreen
When you’re under the sun, your skin tries to produce more sebum, which can put pores at the risk of becoming clogged. UV rays can break down skin’s collagen and elasticity, making the skin look less firm and pores larger. Sun damage is not just dangerous, but can also dry skin, making pores seem larger. So don’t forget to use sunscreen.
