How can I tighten 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 aging can also sometimes cause enlarged pores.

2. Using targeted skincare for beautiful skin

To tighten your pores, you need to cleanse your skin morning and evening to wash away excess sebum and dead skin cells. Then apply the Pore Control Serum to tighten pores. Its formula is enriched with vine flower cell extract. Twice a week, use an exfoliator or 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 to smooth out your skin and blur any imperfections. Apply a smoothing primer before perfecting the skin such as the Instant Poreless.
