Treat Enlarged PoresEveryone wants smaller,"porcelain doll skin" pores. Unfortunately, there are many factors that can cause your pores to appear enlarged. With thousands of pores on the human face, large pores can noticeably stand out. By following these easy tips, minimizing your pore size and keeping pores looking clean can be simple.

Use A Pore Minimizer

Even though there is not a way to permanently shrink enlarged pores, you can minimize the appearance of the pores by ensuring that they are clean and free of debris. One great way to minimize the look of enlarged pores is to use a pore minimizer that has ingredients such as: glycolic acid, azelaic acid, willow bark extract and green tea. Glycolic acid exfoliates the skin and keeps pores clean. Azelaic acid is great for helping control acne and keeping pores from getting clogged. Willow bark extract helps keep your skin from becoming inflamed, while green tea has antioxidants to help fight free radicals that lead to premature skin aging. The DERMAdoctor Picture Porefect, which contains glycolic, lactic and citric acids enhanced by retinol, azelaic acid, and willow bark, helps to refine and tighten pores within minutes upon application, giving you a flawless appearance.

Use Toner

Using a toner helps your skin stay clear and reduces residue and oil buildup. Using a toner with glycolic and lactic acids helps to remove remnants of any type of cleanser and prepare the skin for whatever step comes next in your skincare regimen.

Use A Glycolic Acid Peel

A glycolic acid peel is a great peel for those with enlarged pores. The strength of glycolic acid peels can range anywhere from 30 percent all the way to 75 percent concentration. There are many benefits of using a glycolic acid peel including deep cleaning pores, removing blackheads, fighting acne, evening out skin tone, brightening skin tone and smoothing out rough skin. All of these benefits help reduce the look of enlarged pores.

Use a DD Cream

Another great way to minimize the look of pores is to use a color correcting DD cream. These types of creams not only help minimize pores, but also help refine and firm the skin. Another benefit of using DD cream is that it gives you a less shiny look, while visually minimizing large pores. The DERMAdoctor DD Cream SPF 30 helps minimize pores, firms, brightens, refines and mattifies the skin to leave it healthy looking and naturally gorgeous.
