I recently sent a survey out to my subscribers asking what skin problems they felt they needed help with and a large number of them responded asking how to shrink pores.
I had to do plenty of research on that! In all of my reading, it quickly became apparent that actually there is very little one can do to reduce pore size – you’re born with what you’ve got!
HOWEVER, there are some things that if you do them on a regular, repeated basis will help! I went to the American Academy of Dermatology for some answers…
Here’s the basics:
1. Use only non-comedogenic skin care products (oil free)
2. Cleanse your face 2x per day
5. Be gentle with your skin
Keep in mind that none of the above is a permanent solution. Only an actual dermatologist can assist you with that!
Since facial clay and mud masks seem to be high on the list for helping, I am developing an extremely high quality clay mask and facial scrub (all in one!) that will exfoliate and tighten. So far, response has been great!
I tried it as a mask first and then hopped in the shower to rinse it off. As it reconstituted in the moisture, I gently rubbed the clays against my face and finished rinsing it off.
After my shower, I used my serum (as always!) and felt my skin… It. Was. Amazing!
If you’d like to try it, please understand I’m still in development and sometimes it takes a while to develop a handcrafted item, depending on volunteers and feedback. (but you COULD volunteer!)
