How The Hell Do We Get Rid Of Pores IRL?

Hello Lovely People!

What the Hell is the deal with enlarged pores? There’s so many products on the market that promise to blur, conceal and diminish these – and some are effective to a point.

However, that point is short-lived and unless you walk around with an arsenal of products at the ready every minute of the day, you just know that the little improvement you can obtain just isn’t worth the endless hassle. So, what do we do? Put up and shut up? Hell NO! Check out some pore reducing procedures that will actually work (for far longer than half your working day). Gooodbyyye pesky enlarged pores!

 1.Laser Up

You may have noticed the use of laser treatments amongst celebrities has rocketed in recent times. Lasers are touted as a key rejuvenating treatment for their hugely successful results for many skin concerns such as: diminishing fine lines, plumping up the skin, tightening, reducing eye bags…oh and you guessed it, reducing those wretched pores. Should these skin concerns be particularly problematic, laser skin resurfacing is an excellent option.

 2.Micro-Needling

Micro-needling is basically the process of putting many tiny little needles just under the surface of the skin to trigger the body’s own restorative response by stimulating collagen to work its magic. Micro-needling repairs and renews the skin, and in turn greatly reduces those pesky pores. You can visit a clinic or alternatively purchase an at-home device such as the fabulous Swiss Clinic’s Micro-needling Skin Revival Treatment.

 3.Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a procedure that utilises fine crystals and a vacuum to remove the dead skin cells. This treatment feels like your top layer of skin has been completely removed, will leave your face very red for the rest of the day – and you definitely need a strong SPF. However, in the whole scheme of things it isn’t particularly painful and definitely not the worst procedure to undergo – and it does greatly improve your complexion, whilst going some way to reduce enlarged pores.

 4.Chemical Peels

Another good treatment option for rejuvenating and diminishing pores are chemical peels. The process involves applying a chemical solution to the skin which in turn deeply exfoliates the skin, so that when it dries it then peels off (hence the name). The result is a more youthful complexion with far fewer pores.  Visit: goodskindays.co.uk

 5.Retinol Products

For quite some time we have heard about the miracle that is retinol. This little gem makes quick work of firming and rejuvenating the skin. The appearance of pores is reduced, and fine lines are lessened. However, take note – retinol can be a tricky product particularly for newbies or those with sensitive skin. If in doubt, firstly talk to your dermatologist. A great retinol product is the SkinCeuticals retinol.
