Pores are one of the biggest talking points in the beauty industry. Everyone is on the hunt for pore clarifying products and skincare hacks, but how do you actually minimize and decongest pores? This may come as a surprise, but you actually CAN’T open and close your pores.
I know many of us have heard of facial steaming for extractions and cold water to close the skin barrier. The changes you experience are actually due to blood vessels in your skin and the loosening of sebum. So how do you treat clogged and enlarged pores? In this article, we’re going to share our top beauty secrets to implement into your skincare routine.
Exfoliate and Draw Out Impurities With Microdermabrasion
Pores are connected to hair follicles and allow sebum and sweat to reach the skin’s surface. While there’s no way to make them disappear into thin air, you can definitely get a tightening effect with certain procedures. Microdermabrasion with the Dermeren Microdermabration Facial Kit gently exfoliates and massages skin while the vacuum draws out impurities from the pores.
If you struggle with dark oxidized blackheads, this leading technology can loosen the material and extract it from the skin. The result? An even complexion with visibly refined pores. The best part is you won't spend time poking, prodding, and potentially scarring your skin. Remember that you can’t erase your pores completely, but you CAN remove decongestion that makes them appear more prominent.
Hydrate The Skin With collagen-boosting Products
Pores can appear stretched out over time due to a loss in collagen or sun damage. If you want to decrease the appearance of pores, you don’t want to aggravate your skin with too many harsh chemicals. Remember that your skin barrier health plays a pivotal role in the appearance of healthy, glowy skin.
Instead of overwhelming your face with harsh treatments, follow up your microdermabrasion with a Rejuvenation Serum. Our serum is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Kangaroo Paw Flower, Lilly Pilly, Niacinamide, and Vitamin C.
These active ingredients stimulate collagen production, repair skin tissue, and plump the skin while diminishing clogged pores. Collagen is like the fountain of youth and can work wonders in minimizing the appearance of pores.
Focus on Products That Boost Cell Turnover and Regeneration
Any product that increases the rate of cell turnover will offer exfoliation, anti-aging, and clarifying benefits. These active ingredients work behind the scenes to create the results you crave, without any need to pick at your skin.
The Dermeren Replenish Oil is a powerful yet gentle treatment oil. It’s a great final step after microdermabrasion and your nightly serum—active ingredients like Camellia oil and Argan oil. Rosehip oil, Raspberry oil, and Sea buckthorn oil work together to brighten and tighten skin.
Rosehip and Raspberry Oil are rich in Vitamin A, operating as delicate natural retinol. The combination of oils hydrates boosts collagen and refines the appearance of scars; by using our Replenish Oil, you are able to target the biggest concern behind your clogged pores without using irritating ingredients.
Final Tip: Care For Your Pores, Don’t Try to Get Rid of Them!
One of the biggest myths in the skincare community is that pores are all bad. I know everyone aspires to have ‘glass skin,’ but remember that pores are actually working in your favour. The one thing you can target is that gross gunk, build-up, and dead skin that’s keeping you from your skin goals.
Don’t try to erase your pores because you’re just putting your skin at risk of more damage. Remember, skin damage = larger pore appearance! Instead, focus on clarifying, boosting collagen, and increasing cell turnover. These three key tips will rejuvenate your pores, minimize their appearance and encourage clear, youthful skin.
