The dreaded large pores every person on this planet complains about. Some people have larger pores than others, larger pores produce more sebum in your skin that will moisturize and keep your skin waterproof. Sometimes dirt and dead skin cells get trapped in the pores and so it will appear large.
Genetics determine the size of your pores, and unfortunately there’s nothing you can do to change it. As you age over the years, your skin will start losing elasticity that can result in the appearance of larger pores. Men are more prone to have larger pores than women. If you are born in a country that has a more humid climate you tend to have smaller pores than in dry climates due to the fact that your skin doesn’t need to lubricate itself as much as in dry climates.
Here at Glo Laser and Beauty our therapists will recommend Lamelle Chemical Peels, depending on specific skin conditions and skin type. The chemical peels will assist with the skin’s resurfacing process, which will in time help to reduce the appearance of large pores.
Homecare products recommended by our therapists will further help reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. Products for homecare include the following: Nimue Cleansing Gel and Conditioner Tonic contains AHAs that will help to resurface the skin and therefore gradually reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. Lamelle’s Clarity Active Cleanse will prevent blockages from forming inside the pores, preventing pores from being stretched out and appearing enlarged. Using a serum or moisturizer containing Growth Factors such as a Lamelle Dermaheal Moisturizer or Serum, will help stimulate cell renewal from the dermis, which will over time reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.
