When Large Pores Appear Use These Simple Step To Clear Them

 Good Food

If your face becomes oily just 1 hour after morning care, maybe it’s because your skin produces too much sebum.

What you can do:

Decrease the number of carbs you eat. Sugar, white bread, white rice and other foods with a high glycemic index make the skin produce more sebum, and pores get blocked which may lead to acne.

Add herbs and spices to your food. Cinnamon, oregano, cloves, ginger, and garlic all prevent the processes that lead to aging of the skin and the decrease in elasticity.

Drink green tea. It contains polyphenols that decrease the production of sebum and help reduce acne.

Eat more fish and vegetables. They decrease the probability of acne.

Clearing and Moisturizing

Skin with large pores should be moisturized and cleaned twice a day. The remains of cosmetics, dead skin cells and dirt block the pores, which usually leads to a breakout.

After clearing the skin, you need to moisturize it with a product that can protect it from UV-light, dirt, loss of moisture and help save its elasticity.

What you Should Do:
Use peels that contain salicylic acid (up to 1%) or glycolic or lactic acid (2-5%) because they stimulate the regeneration of cells and help to keep pores clear.

Don’t use scrubs. Abrasive particles can damage the skin and cause inflammation which can lead to the enlargement of pores.

Use gels to clear your face. Gels are much better for oily skin than lotions are.

Don’t wash your face with regular soap. The acidity of soap is 8 to 10 on the pH scale, so it can destroy the protective layer of skin which will lead to an increase in sebum production. You can use products with a pH no higher than 5.5.

Wash your face sometime between 12 PM to 4 PM if you can. At this time of day, the skin produces sebum very actively which is why we often notice an oily shine in the middle of the day.

Use sunscreen because if you don’t, UV-light will destroy the collagen in your skin and make less elastic.

Use a water-based cream or gel since they moisturize the skin without blocking the pores

Choose Safe Cosmetics.

Cosmetics are comedogenic if they contain ingredients that can block pores like wax, oils, talcum, and other similar components. Skin with enlarged pores requires cosmetics that decrease the production of sebum.

Useful components in cosmetics:

Nordihyroguaiaretic acid, NDGA, and sarcosine. They reduce the production of sebum.

Niacinamide, zinc gluconate, zinc sulfate, caffeine, biotin, and Enantia chlorantha bark extract. They all regulate the function of sweat glands.

It’s better not to buy cosmetics that contain:

Talcum blocks pores. You’re better off using mineral based products.
Alcohol dries out the skin and disrupts the natural process of removing dead skin cells.
Mineral oil since it’s a cheap, easy comedogenic component of many cosmetic products.
