Big pores can be a real problem – for our skin, our time, and for our bank accounts! However, it doesn’t have to be this way. At LOOKFANTASTIC, we've listed our favourite pore minimising treatments so you can achieve Hollywood-worthy, clear skin in no time at all.

What are pores?

Look at your face in the mirror. See those little dots all over? These are pores. Pores are the skin’s way of opening up the hair follicles. Their function is to act as a release for the oils and sweat (known more scientifically as sebum) that are currently building up under your skin’s surface. Contact with oils means your pores are increasingly susceptible to a build-up of excess sebum, which can lead to clogged skin, and eventually to breakouts.

How to minimise the appearance of pores

Over time, it's a fact of life that your pore size will grow. This means that it's important you keep your pores as clean and clear as possible. To do this, you may need to revaluate your current skincare products and find a better daily regime. This includes using cleansers and moisturisers that do not completely rid your skin of its natural moisture levels, day and night, as this will ensure the best results.
