I HATE pores! If I could have a pore less face I would be so happy. I would love to go one day without looking in the mirror and seeing my face clogged with makeup and dirt.
It’s my mission to shrink these suckers, so I can achieve that porcelain doll look:) Try out this regime.
PS. I know I could just go without makeup, but I have a face for radio. Lets not make this harder on yourselves:)
Use a makeup remover. Buildup from makeup is often responsible for clogging pores. The first step in the exfoliation process is to remove it.
- Try to find a natural makeup remover, if possible. The chemicals in many makeup removers can dry out your skin, causing it to flake and increasing the need for exfoliation.
Cleanse your face with warm water. There’s no need to use any special facial cleanser to unclog your pores. In fact, soaps, perfumes and other ingredients might actually exacerbate the problem by inflaming your skin.
- Make sure the water is warm, not hot. Again, reddening and inflaming the skin is not necessary, and not good for reducing the appearance of pores.
- Pat your face dry with a soft towel. Don’t scrub it, or you may damage your skin, which is more sensitive on your face than other parts of your body.
Use an exfoliant. Exfoliating skin removes dead skin cells and oils that clog your pores. Consider these different types of exfoliants, and use one as often as needed:
- A dry facial brush. Buy a small, soft brush made with natural fibers and use it to gently brush your face. Your face and the brush should both be dry. Use swift, short strokes to brush away flakes around your eyes, cheeks and chin.
Moisturize. After you’re finished exfoliating, apply a light moisturizer or facial oil, like rose hip oil. This will keep your skin from getting dried out and irritated, helping to reduce the appearance of pores.
