How could something as tiny as a pore trigger such a huge response in how we view skin? Whether you’re oily prone or aging, enlarged pores seem to be the barrier to the flawless look and smooth feeling we crave.
So, what causes pores to expand and appear bigger or wider? There are two factors at play. First is oily skin. When skin overproduces oil, it’s more likely to trap makeup, dead skin cells, and debris that can cause blemishes. This excess debris (also called congestion) causes the pore to expand and stretch. Congestion in the pore can oxidize and cause the debris to darken. (Similar to how a cut apple exposed to air will darken with time. It’s important to note that blackheads are not dirt inside your pore, but the result of the oxidation process.
Constant pore expansion causes the pore wall to become fatigued and permanently stretched out. But, large pores aren’t exclusive to oily skin. Skin loses elasticity as we age, and just like our skin sags, pores can stretch and sag, making them appear bigger than they ever have before.
There’s a two-part approach to visibly minimize pores: Give them a deep professional cleaning followed by a home care routine, and boost collagen and elastin turnover to re-strengthen skin.
Dermalinfusion’s Pore Clarifying Pro-Infusion Serum is formulated with Salicylic Acid: This Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) helps exfoliate dead skin cells and neutralize debris inside impacted pores. It also helps facilitate smoother and clearer skin texture. Bakuchiol, a botanically-derived ingredient, is one of the latest scientific discoveries in treatment of oily and congested skin that also provides retinol-like anti-aging properties. Bakuchiol helps improve the appearance of elasticity and firmness, which helps minimize pores for smoother texture.
When this powerful serum is paired with Dermalinfusion’s 3-in-1 exfoliation, extraction, and infusion technology, you have a sensationally powerful weapon against pores – no matter how large they appear.
