No one likes blackheads, pimples or large pores.
Those pesky black marks are actually dead skin cells and excess oil which have oxidized upon contact with air which turns them black.
Blackheads are persistent because your body does not see them as a threat.
Pimples, on the other hand are caused by bacteria which the body fights, you can leave a pimple alone and your body will take care of it within a few days. Never fast enough but it will resolve itself.
Oily skin often has larger pores with blackheads, especially on the T zone and the cheeks near the nose. Pore size is largely genetic so you can only arm yourself with knowledge.
You can minimize pore size by consistently keeping skin clear of oil and dead skin cells. Professional facials are a great help because of the steps taken prior and post extraction of blackheads which ensures no injury comes to your skin.
In-between make certain to thoroughly cleanse your face and apply a glycolic acid at bedtime. You should start by leaving it on for approximately 10 minutes and then gradually increasing time. Rinse with water. Once your skin is used to it, you will be able to leave it on overnight.
In the morning a simple wash, oil free moisturizer followed by a lightweight sunblock will get you on the right track.
Consistent cleaning will refine your pores and help return them to their original size.
Glycolic acid exfoliates will smooth out fine lines, improves skin tone, texture and will brighten your whole complexion. Always consult with a professional for product options, follow directions and love the results!
