What Causes Open Pores and How to Treat Them?


⁣First of all – pores that are open/ big in size can’t be reduced in size/ removed, they can only be reduced in ‘appearance’ by removing the dead cells stuck in them and working on the skin around them.⁣

What causes open pores?⁣
– High levels of oil (sebum) production⁣
– Reduced skin elasticity⁣
– Reduced skin hydration⁣
– Sun damage⁣
– Genetics or heredity⁣



what works on reducing the appearance of open pores?⁣
🌟Use salicylic acid (BHA)/ niacinamide/ retinoids to reduce the sebum production of the skin. These ingredients go deep into the pores and clear off the excess oil/ sebum off from the pores, thereby making them look smaller⁣
⭐ Use niacinamide/ aha (lactic/ glycolic acid)/ retinoids to work on increase the skin elasticity for the skin to look firm and tight and thereby making enlarged pores look smaller ⁣
💧 Use light moisturisers loaded with humectants such as hyaluronic acid/ glycerine to increase the skin hydration. Skin hydration is important as dry/ dehydrated skin makes the pores look larger⁣
🌞 Use sunscreen to prevent the further damage of skin and to lock in all these ingredients⁣

If you ask us for our absolute favourite to work on the open pores, that would be a combination of salicylic acid, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid ✨⁣⁣⁣
