Ivan, a friend of mine, was stressing over his large pores earlier today. I felt his frustration throughout our entire conversation and so I felt like it was urgent for me to figure out a solution. I gave who knows how many pages of advice via blackberry messenger.
Factors to large pores:
-Genetics. The explanation most of the time.
Your skin care routine
It all comes down to what you apply on your face. Stick with a routine that promotes cleansing and repairing your skin. Use a gentle and none oil based face cleanser. If you can, and this will help FOR SURE, purchase a pore minimizer serum and apply this before you sleep. For an extra cell repair.
Exfoliate once a week. The best and most organic way to exfoliate is by using extra virgin olive oil and brown sugar. Though it has oil content, it won’t clog your pores. It will get rid of impurities and excess sebum.
Make Up Primer
Okay I didn’t give Ivan this tip. Girls, listen up! Whenever you wear make up, it’s a MUST that you use a make up primer. A make up primer will serve as a barrier between your skin and your foundation. This will also fill up your pores, instead of your foundation filling it up. It also makes your make up stay for ages. Double win!
Talk to your dermatologist about a peel that will suit your skin best.
I’ve also been hearing good reviews about this product called “Porefessional” from Benefit.
I hope this helps, Ivan! Good luck
Me and my sister, Denny, went to Rockwell so that we could go Shoe shopping!
As I hoped, she volunteered to indulge my shopping frolic ☺
I love wearing plain, old flats whenever I’m too stubborn to dress up.
(Shirt + Shorts + Flats = Leggo!!) It’s kind of like my “lazy attire”. I just wanted to update you guys on how my summer’s rollin so far.
Hope your enjoying yours!
