One of the top questions we get at skinfo® is "How do I shrink my pores?!"
Well, you can't shrink your pore size, BUT you can make them look more refined by using a chemical exfoliant. Retinol, Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid are the most common forms of chemical exfoliants. These will remove dead skin, dirt and oil from the surface of your skin, which prevents the debris from getting trapped, thus reducing the appearance of larger pores
. Here is a great regimen that will leave your skin glowing and smooth and is ideal for most skin types. Use a PMD Facial Cleansing Device
at least once per day. This uses sonic vibration and gentle back and forth movements to gently cleanse your pores and cleanse your skin 6x's better than washing by hand! In the morning apply a thin layer of skinfo Essential Cleanser
. The 2% salicylic acid in this gel will help to loosen existing blackheads and control oil production. After cleansing your skin at night, apply skinfo Vital Tea Regenerate 3x
. This is a retinol based serum that will dissolve dead skin cells, stimulate collagen and prevent pores from clogging. To take it a step further, you can alternate a retinol product with a glycolic acid product. skinfo® Vital AHA 10%
, contains 10% glycolic acid which is absorbed into the oil follicle and gets rid of dead cells that can build up.
