Bridal Beauty Basics: Pro Tips For Smaller Pores & Gorgeous Skin

By  | 

As a bride who wants to glow on her wedding day, an important part of skin care routine involves taking steps to reduce the pore size. If you have larger pores, then chances are that your dermatologist has said there’s nothing you can do about it. However, latest research is proving this viewpoint wrong.  There are certainly some things one can do at home to help shrink the pores. Here is what is being recommended:

  1. Get rid of excess oil

Larger pores, sebum and excess oil production go hand in hand. Often, women with larger pores have an acne-prone skin. You can get recommendations for an acne-specific cleanser based on the skin type. Charcoal based face washes have also shown excellent results and today many top brands have developed products with activated charcoal. We recommend the Super Detox organic deep pore cleanser with activated charcoal.

  1. Exfoliate but not too much

Many women tend to over exfoliate their skin using harsh and abrasive scrubs. This leads to pore engorging inflammation that gives rise to redness, pimples etc. Instead, use mild cleansing pads infused with skin-friendly and anti-acnegenic ingredients like salicylic acid, tea tree oil etc. We recommend Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil infused facial cleansing pads.

  1. Avoid the sun

What’s sun got to do with pore size, you ask? Everything- the sun’s UV rays literally tear up the collagen in the skin, causing larger pores. So, do make use of sunscreen and prevent sun damage while you are still young. The sheer tint sunscreen with SPF 20 by Dermatologica also reduces appearance of fine lines and large pores.

  1. Erase them

Thanks to advances in cosmetic science, there are many products we can use to literally erase the pores. These include primers and concealers such as Maybelline New York baby skin pore eraser fluid and Philosophy’s Total Matteness Oil free pore eraser.

Additionally, you could  talk to your dermatologist about skin firming and tightening skin creams for night-time use; these help repair sagging skin by boosting elastin and collagen production. We are sure these home-care products will help you get smaller pores for  beautiful skin in time for your wedding.
