FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: Best Pore Minimizing Products


Happy Friday y'all! I sincerely hope Friday's treating you right.

Today's FMF question is from Jean:

Hi TBJ,
I would like to ask what is the best pore minimizing product you have used? I have super large pores at age 26 and I do not know what to do about it. I also have oily and sensitive skin. I have tried several products and I can't even use a moisturizer 'cause I feel like it just worsens my enlarged pores. Your suggestions would be very much helpful. Thanks! :)
Jean

Hi Jean!

Large pores are also the bane of my existence, which resulted to excessive use of nose pore strips when I was still starting out with skin care; I deal with enlarged pores on almost a daily basis and here are the products I've found to be effective in keeping them small and making my face look smoother. Dishing out some tips on how to help alleviate enlarged pores as well.


1. L.A. GIRL PRO PREP SMOOTHING PRIMER

- A primer that instantly smooths the skin, preparing it for a flawless foundation application.

1. ETUDE HOUSE WONDER PORE SERIES

- A wonderpore collection (pun intended) that is targeted to enlarged pore problems. This is a mild, gentle skin care range that reduces oil, smooths the face, and helps minimize the appearance of pores.

2. BANILA CO. THE BLACKS COOLING MASK

- The Blacks is Banila Co's line for oily skin, specifically those with enlarged pores. My personal favorite is the Cooling Mask because the cooling sensation helps shrink open pores.

3. INNISFREE SUPER VOLCANIC PORE CLAY MASK

- A soft clay masks that draws out impurities for visible soft, smooth skin.


4. BELO ESSENTIALS PORE MINIMIZING TONER

- An affordable, great toner that doesn't sting and takes away excess oil for a clearer, smoother- looking complexion.

5. OLAY TOTAL EFFECTS PORE MINIMIZING TONER

- A gentle, sting- free toner that cleans and helps minimize the appearance of pores after a couple of uses.

6. BENEFIT THE POREFESSIONAL

- A best- selling balm that is built to smooth skin, cover pores, and provide a smooth canvas for makeup.

7. SNOE AWESOME PORESOME PORE MINIMIZING TRIO

- One of the effective pore minimizing skin care lines I have tried; this line, after a month of two of usage, visibly smooths the skin and makes pores appear smaller. Love the serum!

Some tips for minimizing the appearance of pores:

1. Exfoliate. Enlarged pores are oftentimes caused by dead skin cells hanging on the sides of the pore, which weigh it down, giving it a bigger appearance.
2. Make it a habit to use SPF because the sun can induce skin to oil up more than the usual and too much oil can exacerbate enlarged pores.
3. Be consistent with your regimen.
4. Use cooling products and incorporate cooling skin care techniques in your regimen to help tame pores.

That's it and I hope you have learned something today. Stay amazing, ladies!

  4. Finally saved up for months and tried out Etude House's Wonderpore Essence! I love it! Makes my skin feel smooth! It's not as liquidy as I thought it would be. :( Hope that the consistency will be lighter if a new version comes. But I still love the product! Been suffering from enlarged pores for so long now and I'm glad I tried it out. Thanks for suggesting so many products to choose from. It's nice to have a lot of options for this problem since not every product works for everyone. Thank you, Ms. Martha!
