Large pores and blackheads / comedones are most often present in oily and combined skin types. The skin often has an overproduction of sebum and is more prone to developing acne. Typically, the skin in the T-zone is shiny and shiny and the skin surface is uneven. The skin quickly feels greasy and shiny after you have cleansed the skin and applied cream.
The size of your skin's pores mainly depends on your skin type. With large pores and comedones, you often have oily or combination skin.
Problems with large pores can be caused by hormonal factors such as menopause or puberty. Men often have larger pores due to higher testosterone levels than women. Pores can feel larger when they are filled with dirt and sebum, which turns dark when it oxidizes.
If you have large pores, you should choose skin care products that suit your skin type and that contain ingredients that regulate sebum production.
Your skin care routine should include daily cleansing, weekly exfoliation and products with ingredients that have been shown to be effective for large pores.
Cleanse the face 1-2 times a day with a facial cleanser that creates an optimal base for the skin. WASH the day off is gentle on the skin while providing an effective cleanse without drying out the skin. WASH the day off removes make-up, dirt, dead skin cells and waste substances that accumulate in and on the skin. Avoid products that dry out the skin.
SUPERFOOD used as a serum followed by a day cream that suits your skin type. SUPERFOOD contains, among other things, Vitamin B3 / Niacinamide and vitamin A / Retinyl palmitate. The ingredients are effective against large pores and to improve the skin's surface.
NIACINAMIDE, B3 VITAMIN is a powerful water-soluble antioxidant. In addition to its antioxidant properties, Niacinamide has a wide range of well-documented effects; Niacinamide improves the skin's surface structure; Strengthens the skin barrier and maintains the moisture balance in the skin; Reduces irritation and redness in the skin; Regulates and reduces sebum production; Evens skin tone and reduces hyperpigmentation. SUPERFOOD multipurpose vitamin face gel contains 4% Niacinamide. It has been shown in studies that a concentration of 4% niacinamide is optimal for seeing results from the ingredient.
RETINYL PALMITATE is a vitamin A acid derivative, also called a retinoid, which is converted into active vitamin A in the skin. Among other things, retinoids work by stimulating aging cells to continue the renewal process and prevent and reverse the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Retinoids can also be effective in acne and help with clogged pores / comedones. Some retinoids, especially the highly active forms, can be very irritating to the skin. By using precursors to retinol, this side effect can be significantly reduced. We have chosen to use Retinyl Palmitate in SUPERFOOD, as the side effect profile of Retinyl Palmitate causes less local irritation. Retinyl Palmitate causes the skin's barrier to weaken to a lesser extent and does not increase UV sensitivity or irritation/inflammation. Retinyl palmitate can therefore be used daily, all year round. Retinyl Palmitate is better suited for sensitive skin than other vitamin A acid derivatives.
Because of. content of vitamin A, SUPERFOOD should be avoided during pregnancy.
In addition to daily cleansing, we recommend gentle exfoliation of the skin 1-2 times a week. Exfoliation effectively removes dirt that can clog pores.
How to do it: Apply WASH the day off face cleanser and massage your face with a fine face brush or washcloth in circular movements for about 15-20 seconds.
Rinse off with water.
