No matter your age or skin type, you can make a noticeable difference in the way your pores look. The most important thing to know is that pores don’t actually shrink—but they can appear to. The size and look of your pores depend on quite a few factors— things like genetics, skin type, exposure to sun, and age are all part of the equation.
Enlarged pores; the small openings in the skin that release skin’s oils and sweat, they might seem like a small issue, but they’re actually a sneaky sign of skin aging, too. You cannot get rid of pores but if they bother you, they’re probably wider, deeper, or more prominent than they should be, and that’s probably because they’re clogged or not as tight as you’d like.
Good news is that there are solutions to shrink the appearance (and make your face look more youthful).
Skincare Tips To Help Your Pores Look Flawless:
- Cleanse Twice A Day: Daily cleansing and regular exfoliation are the best ways to keep pores clean. Dirt, dust and your dead skin cells get stuck in your pores. Clean your face day and night with gel-based cleansers that would clear oil and dirt from pores. This can make an enormous difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
- Exfoliate Twice A Week: Exfoliating your skin twice a week is also very beneficial. Just be careful not to over-exfoliate the skin. Use gentle-exfoliator with key ingredients like Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide, and Retinoids that would help reduce sebum.
- Moisturize Daily: Moisturizing your skin is a daily “must” for all skin types, including oily skin, but is especially true for dry, sensitive skin. Use a moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin.
- Apply a Clay Mask: Clay masks are another secret weapon for how to minimize pores, because they work to quickly unclog pores by wicking out all the oil. Use a clay mask once or twice a week on alternative days to exfoliate.
- Increase Elasticity Of Your Skin: Tightening your skin and increasing elasticity works the best at dissolving dead cells and absorbing oil. Add Vitamin C and Retinoids to your skincare routine. Use products with Lactic Acid and Glycolic Acid.
- Wear Sunscreen: Always remember to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Use chemical/physical filters with SPF 30, water-resistant, and sweat resistant.
Pore-Minimizing Treatments At ISAAC Luxe:
At ISAAC Luxe, we have treatments that can help you minimize pores and give you youthful-looking skin.
- Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy: Known as vampire facials, the use of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has gained popularity in recent years. This non-invasive cosmetic procedure helps in improving the skin tone and texture, in order to give you a youthful-looking skin. Also known as Vampire Lift, PRP (Plasma Rich Platelet) is a procedure in which blood is taken and is separated from different constituents, and the plasma is re-injected on the face. It can be used to add lost volume to your skin, stimulate collagen, improve skin texture and tone.
- Dermarolling: Dermarolling is a form of collagen induction therapy with the help of derma rollers, a handheld device that comes with 70-400 tiny microneedles in varying sizes from 0.25 mm to 3mm. These micro-needles penetrate the skin causing micro-injuries, leading to the production of extra collagen, which in turn helps in healing the punctures or injuries. While dermarolling helps stimulate the skin’s own collagen, it also helps absorb topical ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and retinol.
- Mesobotox: MesoBotox is the best treatment for those who want to hold back signs of aging for as long as possible. Botulinum toxin, the primary ingredient in Botox is widely known for anti-aging abilities. Instead of just using botulinum toxin, mesotherapy or mesobotox uses diluted botox along with hyaluronic acid in small doses onto specific areas of your face.
- GG Glow: GG Glow Treatment offers visible benefits than most other facial treatments. It provides immediate coverage and long-lasting beauty without overstimulating the skin. The results are visible wrinkle improvement, improvement in skin tone, and glow all at the same time. GG Glow helps reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, acne, or freckles. With multiple shades to choose from, you will find a natural finish to complement your skin type.
- Microneedling RF: Unlike surgical treatments that require a lot of downtime, IntraGen skin tightening treatment makes most of radiofrequency. Just like laser, radiofrequency is energy. It is in fact electrical energy (which is why the tool has pins) to tighten skin and improve texture as well as skin tone. It stimulates your skin’s fibroblasts that improve collagen production, tighten skin, and reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
