Generally, pores can be very frustrating to have to deal with. Anyone who had ever had them on their skin would understand that. This is perhaps why the first solution most people think about when faced with this problem is to adopt the solution commonly used by other people in the same situation— pore strips. But do they work?
Pore Strips don’t work. There’s no simpler way to reveal this out than the fact that you’ve probably been using them for a long time now with no major effects. Pore strips have so often proven to be ineffective in the long term. Also, it can be quite painful and cause more problems for the skin. Many have discontinued the usage of pore strips for this same reason.
Any solution you want to adopt for your pores must include the word “Active.” An active solution, in this case, means it contains a particular ingredient that is active against pores to make the skin moist, reduce inflammation and strengthen the barrier protecting the skin. Some of the ingredients you should look out for in a product include:
- Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs). They are water-soluble exfoliation acids like glycolic acid, lactic acid, malic acid, tartaric acid, mandelic acid, and citric acid.
- Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs). They are chemical soluble exfoliation acids like salicylic acid.
It is advisable to adopt the two-pronged model in applying this solution. Since exfoliating will probably dry out your skin, you might want to replace it with hydrating serums. PORES X Active Cleansing Treatment is the perfect product for you. It contains the necessary ingredients to improve your skin texture and appearance. All you have to do is apply on the affected area for 15-20 minutes (15 for chin, 20 for the full face) and expect a great result with consistent usage.
