…known as pores or craters as they are commonly referred to!
Large pores leave the skin with an uneven texture and are a contributing factor to aging.
Sadly, research indicates it’s hard to change the size of your pores – shock horror!
But, we do have some good news, you can minimise the appearance of pores and prevent them from leading to pimples and acne.
Blocked or clogged pores are one of the main causes of acne - reducing congested pores can help minimise the size of the pores overall. But the main aim is to minimise the opportunity for bacteria and dirt to clog the openings in your skin that lead to acne.
Before we get stuck on the ‘how to’, let's actually look at what a pore is. Put simply, a pore is a minute opening on the surface of the skin. How big or small pores are, really varies for each individual.
While we all complain about the state of our pores, they are essential as they allow oil and sweat to reach the surface of the skin.
Cleansing is an important part of your skincare routine to prevent clogged pores - the SkinB5™ Acne Control Cleansing Mousse is a gentle, non-drying, antioxidant-rich cleanser that works deep down to remove excess oil, dead skin cell build-up and problem-causing bacteria!
A soothing combination of green tea, vitamin b5 and aloe vera assist to refine skin texture, while 0.5% salicylic acid prevents breakouts without causing irritation.
Using daily, morning and night (it’s handy to use in the shower!) your skin will become more refined and look noticeably smoother. Pro tip: if your skin tends to dry out, skip the cleanser in the morning as long as you have cleansed your skin properly the night before.
All SkinB5™ products are completely free of benzoyl peroxide. While benzoyl peroxide is a commonly used ingredient within acne treatments it essentially burns skin and has a number of other nasty side effects. It will also cause bleached pillows!
