Pores are small openings in the skin that release oils and sweat. They’re also connected to your hair follicles. If your pores appear larger, it may be because of Acne
Assess your skin care products :It may be time to switch up the skin care products you use on a regular basis,If you’re using any products designed to clear excess sebum and acne, you could be working against yourself. Short-term use is fine, but they can actually irritate your skin with long-term use.
Also, make sure that all your products are noncomedogenic. That means that they are water-based. Comedogenic, or oil-based, products are especially off-limits if you have oily skin. Too much oil can lead to large pores. Looking for more tips? Here’s a beginner’s guide to creating a skin care routine.
Cleanse your face: The best types of cleansers that get rid of excess dirt and oil without completely stripping your skin of moisture. For large pores related to oily skin, look for a gel-based cleanser. Dry skin can also benefit from creamy cleansers. No matter what skin type you have, avoid cleansers that contain soap or scrubbing agents. These can make pores look bigger.
But even the best cleansers won’t do you any good if they aren’t used properly. Be sure to:
Wet your face with warm water (not hot, not cold).
Massage the cleanser in circles around your entire face and neck for at least 30 to 60 seconds.
Rinse thoroughly and pat your skin dry. (No rubbing!)
Repeat this process every morning and night to balance your skin and keep your pores in good health.
Exfoliate: Exfoliating just one to two times per week. Exfoliation helps get rid of excess flakes that can clog your pores without over-stripping your skin. If you’re currently having an acne breakout, skip your exfoliation session to avoid irritating your pimples.
Moisturize for balanced hydration: One of the most common mistakes people with oily skin make is to skip out on moisturizer for fear that it will add more oil to their face. Moisturizing products actually help your natural sebum penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin. This not only reduces the appearance of oiliness, but it also helps to condition your skin effectively. Without it, your skin could produce even more oil. When it comes to large pores, the key is to choose a light, water-based moisturizer.
Use a clay mask: Clay masks can help remove oil, dirt, and dead skin deep inside your pores to make them look smaller. You can use these once or twice per week, but not on the same days that you exfoliate. Exfoliating and using a clay mask in the same day can be tough on your skin and increase your risk of irritation.
Don’t sleep with makeup on: Falling asleep with your makeup on is detrimental to your skin. When left on overnight, cosmetics can combine with dirt, oil, and bacteria left over from the day and clog up your pores. This can make them look larger the next day when you wake up. That’s why it’s so important to wash your makeup off at night, no matter how tired you are or how late you get home. For added benefit, you can also use a makeup-removing product before cleansing,
Stay hydrated: In addition to using the right products, good, old-fashioned water can also benefit your pores and overall skin health. Specifically, water helps by hydrating your skin internally removing toxins from your pores improving your overall complexion
A good rule of thumb is to aim for at least eight glasses of water or other liquids each day. If plain water isn’t your forte, try adding flavor with lemon, cucumber, or berries.
