EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PORES
Two of the most persistent and difficult skin problems to treat are blackheads and enlarged pores. Most skin care products or treatments provide a temporary improvement, but they can also make your skin problems worse in the long run. Here you can read some tips on how to treat blackheads and enlarged pores effectively and with a lasting result.
WHY DOES SOMEONE HAVE LARGER PORES THAN OTHERS?
The hard facts are that your pore size depends on your skin type. What skin type you have is genetic - you were born with it. What determines the size of the pore is actually the sebum sac that lies in the pore, and it is the one that produces the sebum that lubricates and protects your skin (what you feel like oil on the skin). If you produce a lot of sebum, the pore fills up faster than if you produce little. You can not change the type of skin, but your skin condition - that is, how your skin feels - you can do a lot with. A treated pore will visually look smaller than one who is allowed to live his own life without interference.
WHAT CAUSES ENLARGED PORES?
When your sebaceous glands produce a lot of sebum that mixes with the dead skin cells in your pores, your pores can become blocked. Sebum must not escape freely from the pores, which means that your pores become wider and more clearly visible. The reason why the sebum in the pore turns black on the tip is not that it is dirty. Our tallow contains a little sulfur, and when this is exposed to oxygen, it oxidizes and turns black. Sebum that is encapsulated or has a thin layer of skin over it, becomes like a "white bump", often called whiteheads. Sebum that is stuck in a pore and has become inflamed with bacteria is yellow - that is, a pimple. If the pores are not "emptied" and cleaned often enough, they will expand to make room for everything.

WHAT YOU SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT DO
DO NOT: Do not use skin care products that block your pores or cause your skin to produce even more sebum. Among other things, oily creams with a very creamy structure (on oily skin) or make-up products that contain dehydrating and irritating ingredients, such as alcohol and fragrances.
DO NOT: Never use hand soap, body soap or soap bars, use only mild cleansers intended for the face. The ingredients used to give the soap its firm shape can block the pores and unbalance the skin's protective barrier. Too strong soaps (eg hand soap) will dry out the skin and make it sore. A dry skin will try to lubricate itself by producing even more sebum and oil.
DO NOT: Do not scrub with grain on an inflamed pimple. It will only excite the inflammation more and make the pimples bigger.
DO: Use a tonic after cleansing every day. Then you will be sure to get rid of all residues after cleansing product , and the good ingredients from the tonic will remain on the skin. A tonic with salicylic acid is great if your pores are easily filled with sebum.
DO: Use an enzyme scrub or acid pellet with salicylic acid (BHA). It will allow you to remove excess skin cells from the surface of the skin as well as in the pores. Sebum can then no longer accumulate, and the pores will return to normal size.
DO: Use products that absorb excess sebum. Salicylic acid, Zinc PZA and Aloe Vera, among others, reduce sebum production, soothe irritation and regulate overactive sebaceous glands.
DO: Use antioxidant-rich products to help your skin protect itself from harmful external influences. All our creams and serums contain ingredients that both protect and neutralize free radicals on the skin.
DO: Many of us have both dry and oily skin. Then you have an oily skin type, but a dry skin condition. Always start by getting the moisture level in the skin before treating the impurities. A dry skin is a weakened skin, which more easily gets pimples. Ergo if you get up the moisture level in the skin, the impurities will also be less. Do not be afraid of oils, because even if the skin produces a lot of oils itself, it can be balanced more easily if it is also applied to the skin in the form of cream and serum.
