This month, I asked my skin guru, Rebecca Treston from Euromed clinic for tips on what the best way to shrink pores would be…
After conducting a little research on the subject of shrinking pores, I discovered there are so many ‘old wives tales’ out there, I would be better informed speaking to my skin guru Rebecca Treston at Euromed Clinic.
As our pores are genetically determined it is not possible to reduce the size of them but there are ways to minimize their appearance.
First of all, I would start with a great skincare regime which would perhaps involve cleansing the skin twice daily and depending on your skin type, exfoliating once to three times a week. I recommend using an AHA cleanser or oil control foaming wash. The alpha hydroxy acids in these products work two-fold to hasten the lifecycle of cells whilst tackling the build-up of sebum. The benefits to your skin will soon become clear as your complexion begins to look more polished and refined. If your skin is thin and delicate it’s best to use a salicylic acid exfoliator once weekly. As pores appear more dilated when clogged with oil, it’s a good idea to cleanse your skin before and after a strenuous gym session.
Alternatively, you might also like to try using Derma Rollers at home. The action of skin needling causes miniscule trauma which in turn causes a natural response in the skin leading to the stimulation of collagen and improved skin texture. Although this treatment requires patience it may take up to three months to see an improvement in your skin.
For a faster result, you might like to visit me at Euromed Clinic and try one of our heat-based lasers such as Spectra, Ultherapy or a laser resurfacing treatment. Whichever treatment you decide upon, it’s always best to make sure your laser session is conducted by a skilled therapist who is highly-trained in such heat-based treatments.
Whichever treatment you decide upon, it’s wise to always protect your skin with at least an SPF15.
