How-to: Minimise pores
Did you know you can’t actually shrink your pores? But don’t stress, because it is possible to minimise their appearance. Arm yourself with a bit of know-how and a hard-working skin care product, and you’ll be on on your way to a smoother, more even-looking complexion.
Check out the video above, where bh's Bree shows us how to minimise the appearance of pores. Don’t feel like watching our video? Read the tips below instead:
TIP #1: Cleanse day and night. Steer clear of harsh scrubs or cleansers that strip your skin of its natural moisture barrier, as they can trigger more oil production.
TIP #2: Use an exfoliating toner. After washing your face, swipe an exfoliating toner across your face. It will help to rid your skin of any natural debris, stopping that build-up from expanding your pores.
TIP #3: Don’t squeeze your blackheads – this can stretch or damage the pore and make it more visible. No, thanks! Cleansing the skin properly is a much better option.
TIP #4: Consider starting an anti-ageing routine. When skin ages, it loses elasticity, which results in pores increasing in size. To make your skin more resistant to this, keep it nourished and protected from the sun.
TIP #5: Apply a base that helps to improve skin’s texture while providing coverage. Using tailored products make the world of difference.
