How To Shrink Pores

Thanks to the stunning faces in magazines, many women are rushing to their dermatologists and cosmetics doctors to find new ways of getting smaller pores. Doctors say that large pores do make you look older, but the fascination to get rid of them has never been stronger.

There are many products on the market now hoping to reduce pores. Rumour says Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow have their own routines to shrink pores.

The first step to getting smaller pores is to rid your skin of its oily properties. Apparently oily skin can make your pores more visible. As you age it gets worse as your skin loses its elasticity. As your skin sags the pores become more open and visible.

Antioxidant moisturizes can stimulate your skin to return some of the elastin and collagen to your face.

Exfoliate your face to clear out pores often and use pore minimizers with glycolic acid and salicylic acid to reduce their appearance.

Avoid using heavy makeup on your face is key. Covering up large pores will only add to the problem.
