We need pores to let out sebum for our skin to function. They only become a problem when they are blocked and stretched. The most effective skincare to unblock pores is using clays or acids like BHA and Salicylic. Evidence shows that to tighten pores you should use ingredients that help build more collagen like vitamin A&C making it less likely for the pores to be blocked.
Lixir Skin Soft Clay Rubber
This is famously known to help clean out pores and hard to get a better mask to do the job. Keratolytic enzymes break down dead skin that block pores which then allows the amazing white clay to clear out congestion, impurities and get rid if excess oil. The mask then dries and becomes a manual exfoliator. The more you rub the deader cells are gone.
Lixir Skin BHA/AHA 10% Acid
This dislodges dead skin and encourages cellular turn over. Which will also prevent pores from being blocked.
Skin & Tonic Detox Mask
Highly active green clay binds with impurities and soaks up excess oil to deeply cleanse pores.
Dr Barbara Sturm Enzyme Cleanser
This is a two-in-one cleansing foam and exfoliator, particularly ideal for oily and combination skin. "I just love the Enzyme Cleanser because it offers instant spa-like results! The ultra-fine powder uses vitamin C and other select enzymes to gently exfoliate the skin and refine pores. After each wash, your face will feel not only very clean but so soft and smooth!", Dr. Barbara Sturm. The fine-grained powder transforms into a soft foam once water is added, providing a deep, yet gentle cleanse and exfoliation. A collection of enzymes works together to loosen the conjunctions between dead skin cells, helping to peel away dry and rough skin, remove makeup, and reduce excess sebum from pores. The skin will appear revitalised and smooth instantly after cleansing.
