7 Best Ways to Get Rid of Large Pores

Apr. 29, 2020
The appearance of the pores is different in every skin type. Many individuals suffer from the visibility of their large pores.  However, there are quick home tips, which you can follow to get a better solution.
Before getting into the tips, you have to know that pores are a result of two factors- sebum (body oil secretion) or sweat. Therefore, whatever remedy or treatment you want to opt for the complete eradication of pores will not happen. They might look small or faded.
How Pores Become Large?
You should know there is tiny hair present on your skin, including the face. Oil production happens in the glands, which are present in those hair follicles. These are the sebaceous glands. When the oil secretes at the maximum level, it is deposited on the skin surface and ends up in pores.
The studies of 2016 states, the leading causes of pore enlargement are based on few reasons:
Excess Sebum – If the oil secretion level of the skin increases, then the oily surface develops due to sebum.
Elasticity Decrease- The tight and suppleness of the skin goes away, hence resulting in large pores.
Less volume of hair follicles- Clogging skin pores due to the less hair volume also causes skin pores visible. Pore clogs are mainly due to the deposition of oil and dirt, which is again caused due to make up on your skin.
7 Ways To Reduce Skin Pores
1. Selecting Water-Based Good Products
Any individual who tends to oily or acne-prone skin type should always opt for water-based skin products.  Generally, this helps in less secretion of oil and sweat. The less oil is produced, the sebum secretion will be controlled. Again, another benefit of water is to improve blood circulation. Therefore, impurities of the skin cells get naturally washed away.
2. Face Washing
Remember to wash your face every day twice without mistake. Of course, you can go for the basic skincare regime like using natural face wash or cleansers. Scrub well on the T zone of your face. Mostly the oil secretion is found around the nose and forehead.
3. Select Gel Based Moistures-Cleansers
For the oily skin, you should always go for gel-based solutions. Often moisturizers tend to leave a residue after application. Avoiding such residues can help you to get clear skin without forming any blockage.
4. Exfoliation Is The Best Way
Scrubbing or exfoliating the dead cells is essential for any skin type. When it comes to oily skin, you should indulge in this process twice a day. Moreover, this helps to eradicate unnecessary dirt and oil content.
  • You can definitely invest in products, which have salicylic acids. It helps to remove dead pores and flakes faster, resulting in glowing skin.
  • While you exfoliate your oily skin, remember never to over-cleanse your face. Otherwise, it may result in redness. 
  • Washing the oily skin with excess salicylic acid will not be a good idea. Even that can cause skin pore-clogging.
  • You can choose botanic scrubbers or manual exfoliators for this purpose. However, take precautions while exfoliating and do not cut your skin surface.
5. Hydrates Skin Essentials
Many individuals may think if their skin secretes oil, they do not need moisturizers. So, this is a wrong notion. No matter how much your skin creates sebum and you cleanse thoroughly, a descent moisturizer will help to retain the oil-water balance effectively.
  • The primary function of a moisturizer is to soften the cells of your skin. It can penetrate deeply through the skin tissues and control the ph balance. 
  • Lotion based moisturizers for oily skin is the best trick. The lotions tend not to settle on the skin surface. However, the essential nutrients required for the oily skin are reached safely through the lotions without clogging the pores.
  • Use a calming moisturizer at night and an SPF range sunscreen content lotion in the morning.  Oily skin users have to take special care of sweat and tan settling comfortably on their skin. Therefore, an SPF ranging 15-20 will be ideal for you guys. 
6. Always Remove Your Make-Up
Select non-comedogenic make up brands. Again, you should understand if makeup is not removed on time, they could trouble your skin a lot. Before you go off to sleep, make sure to use a mild toner, and clean your face.  If you go to sleep with make up the pore, clogging might result in acne or painful pimple the next day. 
7. Tips For Glowing Skin
Your skin health is an essential factor, above all. Fading the pores or aging lines can only be controlled if you follow these points below:
By eating well, we mean to include all the carbs, proteins, fats, and nutrients in the correct proportion. Go for a detoxifying drink in the morning. It helps to circulate the blood properly and removes the body toxins. Try cutting down on your coffee or junk food. Oily skin is also a result of an unhealthy diet.
Hydration is the key to skincare. Have water at regular intervals. Consuming water will help your skin complexion get better. In case you are facing issues like acne or discoloration, water is the best way out.
To enhance the body's metabolism, everyone goes for exercises. Do you know your skincare can improve if you indulge in brisk walking, jogging, or maybe Zumba? Any kind of body movement can eliminate the toxins smoothly.
  • Whenever you get time, go out for a stroll and drink water after you finish exercising.
  • Always carry a towel with you. Do not let that sweat deposit on the skin. It causes blocked pores.
  • You can use antibacterial soaps while bathing after gymming or yoga. Further, this helps to kill the germs and remove dirt.
Skincare always depends on the healthy lifestyle of an individual. Getting an ample amount of sleep and less stress can also improve the conditions of large pores.
Best Reviews
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!!

I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks!

You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
