How to shrink your pores? YOU CAN'T

Pore size is mostly genetic. But there are techniques to minimize your large pores.
 
PROTECT COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN
​Your first line of defense to keep your pores from looking larger is to wear sunscreen as a protection against pore dilation and loss of the pore support structure. Use a Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 to protect against UVA and UVB rays.
 
BUILD COLLAGEN

Retinoids (vitamin A) help build collagen over time by squeezing and tightening the look of your pores. Vitamin C is another option to enhance collagen production and reduces photo-damage including wrinkles and pigmentation.

​DECREASE OIL PRODUCTION
Niacinamidegreen tea extract and L-Carnitine can help normalize oil production and minimize your pores​ to​ looking nice and clear​.​
 
REMOVE OIL
Salicylic acid (BHA) as a cleanser or a leave on product is very good at getting in and clearing away oil from your pores.
 
EXFOLIATION
Chemical exfoliants such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid and retinoids used to smooth and flatten out by removing debris from the upper layer of skin creating less pore depth on the surface of your skin.
 
A Basic Skin Care Routine:
DAY:
Gentle Cleanser, Vitamin C Serum, Sunscreen
 
NIGHT:
Gentle Cleanser or Salicylic Cleanser, Retinol* 5-6 times a week, Niacinamide, Moisturizer
 
One or two days a week apply a leave on chemical exfoliant.
 
*Ease into starting a retinol, applying every other night for the first few weeks of use.
