Hi Klevies! We all want to have healthy-looking and glowing skin. But somehow, it is hard to get ourselves effortless skin due to large and open pores that make the skin look dull.
Before we move on to the main topic, it is important for us to acknowledge that we can’t open, close or change the size of pores. However, we can always do something to make the appearance less obvious in such easy ways. So, in this article, we will tell you what you need to do to get rid of the appearance of the large pores.
Even though we can’t always notice every pore in our skin, we have countless pores to help the skin “breathe”. Every pore on our skin has hair follicles which also contain sebaceous glands that produce oil or what we know as sebum. When the pores enlarge, that means there is a significant increase in sebum production which usually occurs more in face areas such as the nose, forehead and cheek.
The other causes that make the pore look larger on the skin can be due to the reduction of collagen production and skin elasticity, sun damage, genetic factor, and larger size of the hair follicles.
Large and open pores can happen to everyone no matter what their skin type is. Not only is its appearance kind of annoying, but large pores can make your skin look dull, clog pores cause whiteheads and blackheads, and even trigger several problems like acne.
Worry no more! You can overcome large pores by only cleansing your skin with the following steps:
Wash your face regularly
It is important to keep moisture while washing your face. Use a cleanser that can cleanse your skin evenly without losing its moisture and overdrying it. You should avoid using scrubs since they can make the pores look bigger too. Kleveru Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Gel is a great step for a daily cleanse, containing Houttuynia Cordata as the natural cleanser it won’t dry out your skin!
Take notes from this. Avoid using hot or cold water to rinse your face, lukewarm or normal temperature water will do better for the skin. Gently rub the cleanser to your face with a circular motion, and make sure to apply it evenly from the face to the neck area for 30-60 seconds. After that, rinse well with running water and do not rub your skin with a washcloth.
Using a clay mask has the same benefits as exfoliating regularly, which is to deep cleanse the skin from oil, dirt, and dead skin cells that make the pores look larger. Besides clay masks, exfoliating products that contain AHA and BHA can help to cleanse the skin more optimally.
With Kleveru you can deep cleanse with a clay mask that contains both AHA and BHA at once! There are two variants that you can choose; Centella and Spirulina Green Mask with AHA and BHA for oily acne-prone skin, or Rose and Sea Buckthorn Pink Mask with AHA effective to brighten the skin appearance and disguise acne scars.
Watch out for your makeup!
Using heavy makeup on a daily basis can potentially increase the appearance of large pores, and it gets worse if you don’t remove your makeup before sleep. When it sticks on your skin throughout the night, makeup products will mix with dirt, oil, and bacteria that clog pores. Therefore, you must do a double cleansing and make sure there are no makeup residues left.
So Klevies, we have shared with you three easy steps to overcome large pores! In addition to the steps above, reaching your daily water intake is equally important to hydrate the skin from within, remove toxins, and improve overall skin complexions.
