I have really visible pores and always felt self conscious about it. i found most companies and products didn't really do much for it, and i have combo skin. so very oil and then very dry and its hard to find something to clean my skin properly but not overdry it.
I started using ATPcoffee coffee scrubs because theyre local (im in Toronto) and use all natural, organic ingredients and its my new fave. it exfoliates like nothing else i've tried but their coconut and coffee one leaves me moisturized too because of the coco oil. its actually unreal
You may want to try DERMAdoctor Physical Chemistry. Exfoliating properties retexturize dull, dry, or blotchy complexions while minimizing the appearance of fine lines, ultraviolet damage, post-acne discoloration, enlarged pores, and facial keratosis pilaris (surface bumpiness). Smoother, vibrant, younger-looking skin is revealed. You can find it at: http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P168201
I hope this helps you.
Hi powder123. I've recommended two products below to not only help reduce the pore size but also balance your skin gently exfoliating the dry skin and keeping it hydrated throughout the day in any weather condition.
Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer - http://bit.ly/aL2vCD
This product can be applied with a cotton pad once or twice a day after cleansing. Delicate exfoliation resurfaces skin and normalizes oil while Alpha Lipoic Acid improves resilience, tone, and texture. A dose of DMAE counters loss of elasticity while minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores. Salicylic acid removes dead skin cells, dirt, and oil that can clog and stretch pores. A proprietary mineral complex imparts tighter, smoother, more vibrant skin without drying your skin.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream - http://bit.ly/bVFH1e
This cream is for anyone with severely dry, scaly skin due to harsh winter weather, aggressive cosmetic treatments, or any of the following conditions: atopic dermatitis, irritant eczema, allergic eczema, and keratosis pilaris. With the help of colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, soothing eucalyptus oil, and ceramides, Ultra Repair Cream provides immediate relief and visible improvement for distressed skin.
Hope this works!
I have combination skin...dry areas and a slightly oily T-zone. My skin is very sensitive, and prone to breakouts if I am not careful. I had enlarged pores on either side on my nose that drove me nuts. I found that using Ole Henriksen Walnut Complexion Scrub and Firm Action Mask made a huge difference! I use the complexion scrub at night after I remove my makeup, and the mask a couple of times a week. My pores are definitely not as visible...and my skin is very soft too. Hope that helps!
