Your pores play a critical role in keeping your skin healthy. They provide your skin with natural oil that’s needed to keep it soft and supple - but sometimes men’s pores can become enlarged due to stress, fatigue, oil buildup, alcohol, smoke, and other factors. As a result, they’re much more noticeable and unsightly on your otherwise clear complexion. To help minimize large pores, use the following suggestions:
1. Clear Out Pores
Washing your facial skin daily with Dark Phyto-Matter which includes salicylic-acid, retinol, niacinamide and MSM; this helps reduce the buildup of dead skin cells and other debris that can result in enlarged pores. A purifying cleanser can also help treat existing acne breakouts in men and help soothe inflamed skin.
2. Balance Out Oil Levels
Big pores usually produce a lot of oil, so applying a Face Mask 1 to 2 times a week can eliminate blackheads/whiteheads, manage oil levels, minimize pores and get acne breakouts under control. A clay face mask also absorbs impurities to help your skin look healthy and fresh.
3. Scrub it Out
While a facial cleanser works well on its own, you can give your skin a deeper cleanse and detox while minimizing pores using a Recovery Face Scrub. An exfoliating cleansing formula with soft beads helps loosen impurities from long nights or early mornings, making them easier to wash away. As a result, there’s less buildup to clog your pores and enlarge them.
4. Add a Face Serum to your Routine
A face serum for men is scientifically designed with advanced skincare ingredients like Dark Phyto-Matter which include retinol (An alpha hydroxy acid - AHA) to promote healthy-looking skin and minimize the appearance of pores. The AHA's found in a face serum not only clear pores but also delay and reduce the appearance of aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines.
5. Avoid Over Using Products
Use your skincare products only as directed to prevent irritation and redness associated with overuse. Although you may be tempted to wash your face five times a day to keep it clean, don’t do it unless you want to end up with red, itchy skin. Always stick to the instructions on the label and consult a dermatologist if anything goes array.
