  • PRIMARY CAUSE | The formation of blackheads. When sebum hardens inside the pores, the formed clogs expand pores’ diameter + make them look bigger. Apart from blackheads, other factors that contribute to the formation enlarged pores are aging, genetic predisposition + poor skin care habits.

  • EXFOLIATE & TONE | When dead cells build up on the skin surface, they make the release of sebum from the pores more difficult. When sebum gets trapped in the pores it hardens overtime + expands their diameter permanently. When impurities "join the game," you end up with a face full of blackheads.

  • TONERS | The main purpose of toners is to tighten the pores, refresh the skin + hydrate. Toners visibly reduce pore size + make skin surface look more even. There's a great variety of toners to choose from, but keep in mind that many contain alcohol, which is a big no-no if you want pore-free skin.

  • CONTROL EXCESS OIL PRODUCTION | Clay masks are a great way of cleansing your skin in depth & absorbing excess oil, but what’s even better is to manage to "trick" your sebaceous glands into producing less oil in the long run i.e. balance sebum production.

  • Avoid harsh cleansing products (especially those formulated with SLS + SLES) | SLS + SLES disrupt skin's natural lipid barrier which inevitably lead to increased sebum production. The more sebum your skin produces, the more likely your pores to get clogged + later on, enlarged.

  • Try natural vegetable oils |  If your sebum is thicker (more likely to clog pores) chances are the levels of lanoleic acid in your skin’s surface lipids are low. The most natural way to get the levels of lanoleic acid back to normal is by incorporating vegetable oils in your routine.

  • Oils that are rich in lanoleic acid include: Wheat germ oil, tamanu oil, rosehip oil, hempseed oil, etc. Use them instead of moisturizer or for "oil cleansing".

  • Stay away from products formulated with alcohol | Alcohol is EXTREMELY drying, therefore, when applied topically it "stresses your skin out" making your sebaceous glands secrete more sebum, in attempt to compensate the lack of moisture.

  • BOOST COLLAGEN PRODUCTION | With age, the production of collagen + elastin decreases + our skin starts to lose elasticity + firmness. Sadly, this also leads to the appearance of enlarged pores that "compliment" in a very unpleasant way the already bad situation on our faces.
