Tips and treatments for enlarged pores

No matter how you look at yourself in the mirror, those enlarged pores are probably glaring back at you. You’ve tried all the creams to make your pores smaller and all the make-up to cover up your big pores, and yet, there they are. At Sanders Medical, we offer effective pore treatment in Vernon so you can look forward to seeing the smooth skin in your reflection.

Many men and women have enlarged pores in that area we call the ‘T-zone’: the oilier forehead, nose and chin area. When your pores are enlarged, you skin appears less smooth, and it also leaves your skin at risk of acne, infections and other skin care problems.

What can you do at home to reduce the appearance of your large pores?

While most people have enlarged pores because of genetics, others get them from environmental or lifestyle factors such as smoking, sun damage, oily skin, diet and too much make-up.

Either way, here are some tips to make your pores smaller and healthier:

  • Keep your skin clean and well-moisturized. Simply washing your face twice a day to get rid of dirt make-up as well as using oil-controlling skin care products will help keep your pores small.
  • Exfoliate your skin to keep your pores clear and less noticeable as well as reduce and prevent enlarged pores.
  • Drink enough water every day to keep your skin hydrated.
  •  Be kind to your face by using clean make-up tools and staying away from your pimples and blackheads to avoid inflammation.

For many men and women with large pores, everyday home remedies to shrink pores aren’t enough. If you really want to minimize your pores with a lasting, effective treatment, we offer a range of enlarged pore treatments in Vernon at our medical clinic.
