How can I tighten my pores?

1. Why do pores sometimes look so visible?

Skin is tissue that breathes through multiple tiny holes known as pores. Your face alone has around 300,000 pores, with the average surface area of each pore measuring 0.06 mm2. Generally invisible to the naked eye, pores can sometimes dilate and appear visible. The number one reason for this is sebum. When produced in excessive quantities, sebum can cause pores to dilate. But tobacco, stress, pollution, UV rays, diet and even ageing can also sometimes cause enlarged pores.

2. Using targeted skin care for beautiful skin

To tighten your pores, you need to cleanse your face morning and night to wash away excess sebum and dead skin cells. Next, apply the Pore Control serum to tighten pores. Its formula is enriched with grapevine flower cell extract. Once or twice a week, use a scrub designed specifically for your skin type to help unclog pores deep down.

3. Make-up tips and tricks

While waiting for your pores to shrink, make-up is a good way of smoothing out your skin and blurring any imperfections. Apply a smoothing primer before perfecting skin with the Perfecting Mattifying Foundation. Keep the Pore Perfecting Mattifying Kit in your bag as well for touching up your make-up on the go. The kit contains blotting sheets to mop up any excess sebum and a smoothing powder to erase visible pores.
