Pores. Your skin needs them in order to allow it to ‘breathe’ but for many of us, pores can play havoc with our complexion. Whether they’re too big, prone to collecting a lot of dirt or something else besides, we’ve got a selection of products from Decleor and Dermalogica which will help you to keep them under control.
If you’ve got even the slightest interest in beauty, there’s a good chance you’ll know how popular micellar oils are right now and that’s because they are basically minute particles of oil suspended in water, which translates to deeply penetrating cleansing for your pores. The micellar oil is able to cleanse away dirt that normal washes couldn’t reach which will help to rid your skin of dailiy grime without stripping away any of the skin’s natural moisture.
Nothing says ‘clean pores’ like a really thorough scrub (apart from, you know, the micellar oil we mentioned above!) and this one from Dermalogica is powerful, but gentle enough for daily use. Many scrubs would leave this skin raw if used on a daily basis but this one contains natural ingredients which both cleanse and soothe the skin. Oh yeah, and did we mention that it’s actually from the men’s range?!
If you’re prone to spots them you’ll want something which can penetrate your pores during a breakout and get deep down to destroy the spot-causing bacteria within. This spot treatment from Dermalogica can be used directly on a blemish to kill the germs, clear the pore and reduce the inflammation after just one application. Perfect for teenage skin, or those of us prone to acne.
Another one from the men’s range, this time designed to be used before a shave to open up the pores. This is important because it lifts the hairs and allows you to get a really close shave, as well as allowing you to cleanse your skin more deeply. This pre-shave guard does this and also protects your face from the harsh abrasion of shaving, ensuring that you don’t end up with ingrown hairs or shaving rash.
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, it’s just not possible to get rid of every single open pore, which is why this primer is your best friend. As well as hydrating your face and ridding it of excess oil, this product also give an almost magical blurring effect across your whole face, reducing the appearance of any blemishes or inconsistent areas of your complexion, giving you the confidence to forget about your pores once and for all!
