What are pores?
Pores are tiny channels that allow the passage of sebum, sweat out onto your skin. Well, they are usually tiny, but environmental insults, sun exposure causes breakdown of collagen and elastin, and coupled with the accumulation of dirt and sebum, pores balloon.
What is the best treatment for my open pores?
Pores can be divided into mild, moderate and severe. Treatment depends on your pore size, extent and location.
Mild pores respond well to basic skincare. I call it the A.B.C skincare regime.
A: AHA creams ( containing glycolic acid ), vitamin A creams ( Retinoids are gold standard for anti ageing. This has been proven by scientific studies. )
B: BHA creams ( containing salicylic acid, which are great for oil control )
C: Vitamin C, antioxidants and collagen-based creams ( For skin health )
Moderate pores respond to a combination of the above skincare and medical aesthetic treatments.
