How to Minimize Pores

Pores are the small openings at the top of our hair follicles that cover the entire body. Our pores release sebum, the body’s natural oil, to moisturize the skin and keep it clean. Although large pores can be frustrating, they are necessary for maintaining healthy skin.

Genetics is the determining factor for large pores, but oily skin and environmental damages can affect them. While you can not change the size of your pores, you can minimize their appearance. In today’s blog post, we will give you tips on how to achieve this goal.

Main Causes of Large Pores

There are a lot of things that can create large pores, such as: 

  • genetics – it is passed from generation to generation
  • age – with age, your skin loses elasticity and collagen, making the pores look larger
  • sun damage – the sun can thicken your skin by removing collagen, elastin, and water which can cause pores to look more prominent and noticeable
  • blackheads – blackheads are the result of pores clogged with sebum, they can make pores more noticeable and even increase their size
  • clogged pores – having oily skin and avoiding your regular face cleansing routine can clog up your pores significantly, making them look larger

How to Minimize Pores?

1. Clean Your Face Regularly 

Regularly cleaning your face is the best way to remove dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris. Throughout the day, free radicals, dirt, and dead skin cells can pile up, which could lead to clogged pores. Cleansing your face at least twice a day can help your skin with pores and also give you a fresh look. We recommend using The Dermalactives Purifying Cleansing Gel for maintaining smooth, soft, and moist skin.


2. Exfoliate Often

Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells from the upper layer of the skin. It brightens the skin and makes it smooth. By maintaining a routine, you can prevent your pores from stretching while keeping your skin healthy at the same time. It can also help minimize pores and clean impurities from the dermis.

However, remember to be moderate. Exfoliation is key to keeping your skin healthy and free of harming factors, but overdoing it can damage the protective layer of the skin and leave it dehydrated and inflamed. 

A way to prevent over-exfoliation is to use The Dermalactives Pore Enhancing Beauty Device. A non-invasive, non- irritant technology that removes impurities that are deep within the pores while soothing the targeted area at the same time.


3. Moisturize daily 

Moisturizing your skin daily can stimulate blood circulation and new cell generation, and also reduce the chance of developing dry and oily skin – both which can cause acne. 

The best moisturizer for enlarged pores should contain complementary ingredients to the cleanser you are using. We recommend The Dermalactives Purifying Triple Power Collagen Moisturizer because it goes so well with the cleansing gel. Their combined action creates a powerful effect that will stop pore enhancing while maintaining clean and glowing skin at the same time.
