We all want that flawless snapchat filter, but we want it in real life. After seeing our skin on that filtered canvas, how can we go back to dangerously staring at our deep pores only wishing for the day they will disappear. Girls do you know that pores are part genetically adapted? Which is why we have been searching for ways to get rid of them from a young age; but unfortunately have to welcome the harsh truth: You cannot get rid of pores! But you can minimize their appearance and shrink them with the right treatments. Important notice: EXFOLIATE REGULARLY.
So let’s take a look at different ways to say goodbye to pores, even if we can settle for accepting only smaller ones. Of Course as any skin type or concern requires, you need to make sure to cleanse daily. As stated, regular exfoliation is a must for large pores, since they accumulate dirt oils which clog pores and cause an increase in size. Focus on problem areas where dry skin and clogged pores are; like on the nose and cheeks, and exfoliate two to three times a week.
Remove Dead Skin
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate: It’s known on the web as a 2 minute facial that visibly transform texture and pores to reveal smoother and radiant skin. Wouldn’t you want that right under your fingertips; cut the cost of your monthly visit to the beauty clinic. Let’s say yes to removing dull dead cells from your face.
To unclog pores, you must get introduced and in love with (AHAs) alpha hydroxy acids and (BHAs) beta hydroxy acids; these two ingredients are heaven when it comes to cleaning out pores. Pores will keep filling back with dead skin cells, cleaning them is your solution to helping yourself for that healthy looking skin.
Use Retinol Cream
Retinol’s magic is the result of its ability to increase your skin’s collagen production, hydrates your skin, while decreasing its oil production. This leads to smoother skin, fewer breakouts and blackheads, and tighter pores. Definitely grab a retinol cream for that undeniable skin you have been looking for.

Visit Your Dermatologist
If you haven’t already, try a chemical peel as they remove the upper damaged layer of our outer skin. A chemical peel will help your pores look less noticeable; and this is what we are looking for, right? Book your appointment; get that chemical peel that everyone has been buzzing about, and trust that this will be a start to many office visits. If you are living in Kuwait, I highly recommend Dr Bassant, who is literally a miracle worker.
We’ve been hearing about the fraxel laser, which can even out skin texture and shrink pore size, since it is an increase in collagen production and helps tightens skin; meaning tighter pores, that can be your second doctor visit! In order to keep up with your beauty routine in minimizing these pores, I believe monthly doctor visits even for hydrafacials can do wonders.
Try These Products
After doing some research, I have rounded up a few products for your girls to invest in. I hope you achieve the dream of tighter pores and that overall beauty! And before applying your makeup, ALWAYS, use a primer. Makeup has its way of settling into your pores making them more visible when you apply your foundation, which defeats the purpose.
