We have heard these questions many times – How do I shrink my pores? Why are my pores larger than everyone else’s? Can I close up my pores? Here are the answers:
Pores are necessary to allow the skin to breathe, sweat, and release toxins, so even if you could – you would not want to close up your pores. Some people do have pores that are naturally larger than other people do, and some people just have a few larger pores in some areas. People with oily skin and those with sun damage tend to have larger pores, so that’s a good place to start – find a good skincare routine to keep your oiliness under control and protect your skin from any sun damage to avoid large pores in the future – products such as the ZENMED Facial Cleansing Gel, Sebum Regulating Moisturizer, and Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30 will help greatly.
There is no way to permanently shrink pores but there are a few steps you can take to make them appear smaller. First, like I said above – use a good quality, natural skincare routine that will help to keep your skin soft, hydrated and comfortable, and never forget your sunscreen! It is also VERY important to exfoliate regularly as larger pores can create more sebum and dead skin and this can make them look even larger than they really are. A gentle exfoliant used daily such as the ZENMED AHA/BHA complex should see you noticing a difference. If you have a problem with all over large pores – perhaps a microdermabrasion treatment once or twice a week would help you – the ZENMED Microdermabrasion Complex gives you great results at home and is a heck of a lot cheaper than going to the dermatologist!
Keep your skin clean, exfoliated, and protected and you will notice a difference in no time!
