Are those tiny dots on the surface of your skin getting on your nerves? Are you trying everything to make them smaller? Keep reading to learn our 5 strategies to improve the appearance of facial pores.
Two basic things to understand about the pores is firstly, your pores don’t open and close and secondly, pore size is determined by your genetics and your skin type so essentially what you see is what you get. You can help manage the appearance of your pores by cleansing the skin. Daily cleansing releases trapped oil and helps keep pores clear it is one of the easiest ways to help release excess oil and dead skin. YELLE Beauty’s Milk & Honey Cleanser with papaya is an ideal choice for daily at home cleansing. The gentle formula helps break down excess oil and keep pores clear.
Exfoliation is extremely helpful in minimizing the appearance of pores. Exfoliation helps to unclog pores, prevent clogged pores, and control oil. Exfoliation using AHAs, BHAs and retinoids is highly effective. *Tip- Apply YELLE Milk & Honey Cleanser and leave on the skin for 3-5 minutes to experience additional exfoliation while cleansing.

Visit an esthetician monthly to have pesky blackheads and whiteheads removed via extractions. Blackheads and whiteheads make your pores seem bigger, so extractions are key. You may also want to speak with your doctor about prescription options to exfoliate pores and reduce oil build up. Additional treatments such chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments may also be explored.
As we age the collagen surrounding facial pores diminishes leaving the skin less firm and loose. The end result is pores that appear more visible and enlarged. Protect your collagen with antioxidants and sunscreen to minimize pore size. The Age Defying System comes complete with the Awakening Peptide Boosting serum an ideal solution to support brighter, firmer and more even toned skin. The powerful peptide provides a healthy dose of antioxidants to restore elasticity and firmness and keep the skin around pores nice and refined.
One of the major clinical causes of enlarged facial pores is high sebum production. Manage sebum production by avoiding heavy foundation and makeup on a daily basis. Apply the Awakening Milk & Honey Toner both morning and evening to manage oil production and apply a very light layer of the Awakening Daily Moisturizer to manage very oily skin each day.
