Best Ways to Minimize and Disguise Pores

Who hasn’t spent time in front of the mirror mesmerized by their pores at least once? Even the most reasonable of us know that they are here to stay and that their size and state are largely dictated by our genes and skin-type. This doesn’t mean we’re happy about it. We can take heart; however, knowing that there are clever ways to minimize and disguise them.

Minimizing pores is possible and it requires three basic commitments. First, you need to keep them clear of oil and debris through a cleansing and exfoliation routine that works for your skin type and lifestyle. Then you’ll want to refine your pores through the use of peels to smooth and lift debris, or retinols to plump skin and decrease oil production. Most importantly, you’ll want to use sunscreen to protect your skin from the UV rays that hinder the collagen production (collagen is what keeps pores elastic and tight).

"Though these are the basic tenets of any good skincare routine, if you’re not sure what methods and products are right for you, start things off by seeking out the advice of a skincare professional."

If your pores are already in good shape, but still visible you can call upon a multitude of clever priming products that have been created to visibly smooth out the skin’s surface. The Prime & Fine collection boast a range of products with different features to refine pores of varying skin types. For light and transparent coverage (that can be stashed away in your purse for touch-ups) the Anti-Shine Blur Stick is a miracle worker, erasing the look of pores and fine lines. The Smoothing Refiner on the other hand, makes pores practically disappear and since it is oil free it doesn’t clog your pores. Skin primers like the Pore Refining Anti-Shine Base, also have the added effect of giving your makeup added staying power.

So, since we’re pretty sure pores are here to stay, we’d have to say these solutions are a solid compromise.
