Enlarged Pores

TonicOver the course of my 10 years working as a dermatologist, one of the most common questions I get asked is, “How can I shrink my pores?” Unfortunately, you cannot change the size of pores.

Typically, large pores are an indication of too much oil your skin has produced over time. The excess oil mixes with dead skin cells in the pore, causing a clog. And if the skin is not treated accordingly and the pore is not “freed” from the clog, it makes it difficult for the oil to flow freely, which causes the pore itself to enlarge. This is very common process for teenage years as hormones regulate the oil glands that produce the sebum (oil). If your skin produces very little oil, most likely you will have tiny pores.

There is no recipe for shrinking pores, however, with proper care you can minimize their appearance: exfoliate regularly, visit a professional for manual extractions and use products that deep clean your pores. I recommend using Nazelie Purifying Tonic, Peeling Mask and Cleansing Milk as a mini set that helps you deep clean your skin and leave it soft and moisturized. How does it work?

  1.  In the morning apply Purifying Tonic to reduce excess oil and shine, visibly diminish the appearance of enlarged pores, tone your skin and prepare it for your day cream or makeup.
  2. In the evening after removing makeup, apply Nazelie Peeling Mask deep-cleansing, oil-absorbing mask for 5 minutes and rinse away with warm water. You will notice that your pores look and feel extremely clean, and appear smaller.
  3. Apply Cleansing Milk after using Peeling Mask to to hydrate the skin

The active ingredients in Purifying Tonic and Peeling Mask are camphor spirit (camphor with alcohol) and hydrogen peroxide. Camphor is derived from an evergreen tree in Asia and has been well known for its anesthetic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, cooling and refreshing properties. Together with another antiseptic, hydrogen peroxide, it provides an amazing cleansing effect and you might even notice that your blackheads look less prominent. The Cleansing Milk will provide moisture for your skin and make sure it is in balance.
