Do you often look in the mirror and complain about the size of your pores? You’re not alone, we’ve all been there. While genes do play a role in the size of your pores, you can’t blame your parents and move on. Your skincare routine and beauty products you put on your face also determine how large or small your pores look. So, if you wish to minimize the size of your pores, here’s what you need to do...

Exfoliate
 

Exfoliate

Exfoliate your skin at least twice a week and pay special attention on areas where pores are more noticeable, such as nose and chin. Use a gentle yet deep cleansing exfoliator such as the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub which removes dead skin cells and debris thereby shrinking the size of your pores.

Reduce sebum
 

Reduce sebum

Clay and charcoal are two ingredients that naturally reduce sebum production and draw impurities like magnets. Invest in a clay or charcoal based skincare product to get rid of impurities and reduce the size of your pores. Invest in the Ponds Pure White Anti-Pollution + Purity Face Wash and allow it to do its magic.

Use a mask
 

Use a mask

At-home peels and masks are the easiest and quickest way to get rid of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. A clay based mask purifies skin, absorbs excess oil, minimizes pore size and leaves your skin smooth and glowing.

Apply primer
 

Apply primer

Spread the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer all over your face before applying foundation on your skin. This has two benefits it hides pores and allows makeup to blend smoothly. Secondly, it creates a barrier on your skin preventing your foundation from settling into your pores.

Get a facial
