Big Pores can be a constant battle as pore size is determined by genetics. Usually people who are genetically predisposed for oily skin will have larger pores.  If large pores are bothering you, here's 5 effective ways to reduce the appearance of them.

1. Vitamin C

 Use a vitamin c containing product daily. Pores can enlarge when the cell walls around them break down due to factors like sun damage and aging. As we get older, we lose collagen and elasticity in our skin and this can exacerbate the appearance of pores.

2. Wash And Tone Skin Daily

After washing, Tone your skin day and night to tighten pores and remove excess debris.  Doing this twice a day is ideal. You can spray an elixir like the vitamin c beauty elixir on a cotton pad and wipe it over your face for extra cleansing.  

3. Don't Skip Moisturizing

Do moisturize with a natural based moisturizer.  We recommend carrot seed oil or grapeseed oil since they rejuvenate skin and grapeseed oil has astringent properties which shrink pores.

4. Bi-Weekly Masks

Use a masque 1-2 times a week. Pores are always going to be there because it's a part of your skin, but when they become dirty or clogged with oil, pores end up stretching out and appearing even larger.  Prevent this by using an exfoliating masque to loosen dead skin and dirt in pores, or a clay mask to dry out the stuff in pores so that pores will shrink to their regular size. 

5. Use the Banisher and Just Roll With It

The Banisher can be used weekly to apply the a vitamin c serum which increases it's effectiveness to make pores appear smaller and tighter.

The key is to set up a routine! Now that you're armed with these pore fighting tips, go grab the things you need and try it out!
