Enlarged Pores: How to Reduce Their Appearance

Pores are endings on the skin that allows sebum and sweat to exit the skin to reach the surface . Pores don't open and close since they are not muscles; however they can get enlarged in size when clogged and congested.

Oil glands in skin produce sebum to nourish and moisturize the skin from within. When sebum is produced excessively, it can clog and enlarge your pores.


Apply a Niacinamide rich formula to control your sebum production which will make your pores appear smaller in size in return.

Gentle Cleansing

As we agreed, removing dirt and unclogging your pores means smaller-looking pores. Gentle cleansing your face helps greatly in unclogging your pores from excess sebum without drying up your skin and causing dehydration.

Choose a sulfate-free and soap-free gentle cleanser and use it twice a day.


Skin needs to stay hydrated to function properly. Choose moisturizers with non-comedogenic oils and humectants; this will help hydrate your body without clogging your pores.

Hyaluronic acid and glycerin will do the job quite well.

Don't forget to apply your sunscreen daily for optimum skin protection.
