3 Ways to Minimise Pores

Here are four tips for you to minimise the visibility of your pores.

Nº1 Exfoliate

Exfoliate your face to minimise pores. A clogged pore can stretch the pore, thus keeping them clear of debris will decrease their visibility. Ingredients like lactic acid and salicin really shine. Or use our newest susty beauty – Eco luxury Facial Dry Brush. Lactic acid is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid that works to exfoliate the surface of the skin, removing the dead skin that can build up and increase cell turnover. It can also help hydrate the skin, as the removal of those cells allows your hydrating products to absorb more readily into the skin. Natural salicin from willow bark—a star ingredient in the Hydration Mask and Everyday Day Cream —and its derivative, salicylic acid, also exfoliate. Albeit in a slightly different way. Because they are oil-soluble, they are able to get inside the pore to break up the dead skin and hardened oil already stuck in there.

Nº2 Exfoliate

Retinol is also a great ingredient to unclog those pores – which sometimes results in a purging of the skin. As Retinol is such an effective ingredient really helping the skin to give those pores a good clean. All these ingredients are effective when formulated carefully and safely. They can be used in tandem without the increased potential for irritation.

Nº3 Hydrate

Proper hydration is also key for minimising the look of pores, as plumped up skin looks tighter and fuller. Hyaluronic acid serums, like Everyday Glow Serum or hyaluronic essences like Aura Hydrating Essence which is coming soon, are phenomenal for this. Why? Because Hyaluronic Acid is a lightweight molecule that won’t disrupt the natural oil balance of your skin and sinks in instantly, no sticky residue or heavy-feeling layers to worry about.

Nº4 Support Collagen

On the ageing side, ingredients like vitamin C in the Antioxidant Booster – Defense will boost collagen production and keep skin firmer and perkier for longer (staving off droopy pores). While sun damage and dryness won’t necessarily make your pore size larger, shows a study at the Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol.  They won’t exactly help your appearance-minimising cause, thus be sure to wear SPF daily and hydrate frequently.
