Whether they’re on your nose or your forehead, and whether through natural causes or self-inflicted, we can all agree that enlarged pores are something we’d rather live without; but what’s the best way to tackle this pore problem?
Here are just some of the ways you can minimise the appearance of large, open pores, and get one step closer to a smoother complexion:
We can’t overemphasise the importance of a regular cleansing routine for your skin, and this is especially true for your pores. Unclog them by washing twice a day with a mild cleanser containing a gentle lactic or salicylic acid.
Topical treatments such as salicylic acid mentioned above, retinoids, and alpha hydroxy acids can all be used to reduce the size of pores, as well as treating sun damage, and destroying bacteria known to cause acne – sounds like a win-win to us!
- Facial skin peels
Another option is to effectively ‘peel away’ your outer layer of dead skin, to expose the newer and healthier skin underneath. Make sure this is done by a professional and take time to research the best clinic for you. We offer the Enerpeel® Pyruvic Acid peel, or, if you are after a more gentle alternative, the Resurface Peel. We advise a consultation prior to treatment, so we can be sure you’re receiving the right peel for your skin.
- LED Phototherapy skin treatments
LED Phototherapy treatments are an effective non-surgical alternative to help improve enlarged pores by reducing excess oil production. LED phototherapy is especially good when combined with peels. Relaxing and effective!
We want you to be confident in your skin, and focus on your everyday life instead of your skin imperfections – so be brave, and take your first step today.
