Even those of us with the best skin tend to notice pores expanding as quickly as the escalating summer heat. Check out our favorite pore minimizers to fight back against enlarged and clogged pores, for a smooth, even complexion.
Biore Spokeswoman Brittany Snow, 29, knows all about the importance of a skin care regimen aimed at keeping pores clear for a more flawless finish. While factors like genetics and aging can put you at a pore disadvantage, there are steps you can take to keep your pores from growing, and in fact, make them appear smaller.
Important Tips: The most important step you can take to keep your pores in check is kind of a no-brainer — washing your face! You might think your makeup is helping to conceal your pores, but falling asleep with your makeup on or not properly making sure it has all been removed stretches out your pores and clogs them with oil and dirt, making a perfect environment for blackheads and breakouts.
Keep Pores Clear: For a deep-cleansing approach use Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator two to three times each week to remove congestion in the pores while tightening them for a clear and smooth finish. For an option that’s gentle enough to be used every day, but still leaves pores clear, try Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar. Charcoal, a skin care It ingredient, works as a magnet to attract oil and dirt trapped in your pores, rinsing away once you wash it off your face.
