- Cleanse Your Face Daily.
The best way to minimise your pore size is to make sure your skin is clean. Dirt that accumulates on your face can get trapped in your pores. If it gets trapped in your pores this can cause them to stretch out. As a result, blackheads form, and your skin quickly loses a smooth and beautiful look. Ensure to cleanse your face every day with the H4O™ Oxygen Aqua Remove & Cleanse
- Exfoliate your skin
Exfoliation of your skin two to three times a week helps remove dead skin cells and any other dirt build up on the surface. Gentle exfoliation is the key. Unfortunately, over exfoliating or using a rough exfoliator may lead to irritation. This can cause swelling and give your pores an even larger appearance. When using a chemical exfoliation consider patch testing on your skin before incorporating it into your routine. One of our favourite exfoliators is the NO Face Clarified high definition hydro exfoliating micro clarifier.
- Keep your hands off your face.
Apart from your skincare routine, you should not touch your face. Bacteria from your fingers can transfer onto your face and into your pores. Picking at clogged pores is another no, no. No matter how tempting, it will result in an angrier blemish, blood, scabbing, discolouration, and even scarring.
- Use Primer with SPF
Ensure to always use sunscreen as part of your daily routine. SPF will protect your skin from harmful UV rays. UV rays and pollution cause free radicals that break down the collagen and elastin in the skin. This makes your skin less tight and makes pores appear larger. Unfortunately, many sunscreen formulas are shiny and may cause your pores to look more prominent. Primers that contain SPF are an ideal solution. They combine smoothing over pores while providing SPF protection.
- Invest in a Chemical Peel
Another great solution to reduce pore size is to get a chemical peel. This is an in clinic treatment that can help improve the appearance of your pores over time. The new generation and type of peels work in the deeper layers of your skin. This means that you will achieve an instant glow without making your skin worse before getting better!
- Use a Retinol Serum
Retinol helps shorten the skin's metabolisation cycle by accelerating the renewal process to reduce dead skin that may accumulate around the pores to cause skin issues. Retinol is an important ingredient for problem and aged skin management. It will boost your skin cell turnover and improve the look of your pores. You should see results in as little as 21 ways!

The Medi-facial is potentially one of the most effective methods of decreasing the size of your pores. The PoreTech® cleansing treatment focuses exclusively on pore cleansing. It targets whiteheads and blackheads. This 30-minute treatment will give you instant results and clearer skin. Lucky for you, there is a special this month!
- Use Acids
One of the best at home treatments is the use of acids in your skincare routine. Acids such as alpha-hydrozy acids (AHAs) and beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs) are a clear choice. These ingredients are designed to penetrate your skin and clean out the pores. They function by exfoliating your skin on a cellular level to remove dead skin cells.
