AND DON’T FOR­GET…

The size of our pores is mainly de­ter­mined by ge­net­ics, but they can en­large with age.

A pore be­comes clogged when oil, dry skin cells and ev­ery­day dirt and de­bris en­ter them. Clogged pores left un­treated can lead to acne. Un­block them with a steam fa­cial. Cover your head with a towel and place your face over a bowl of hot wa­ter for a few min­utes to loosen the build-up.

Oily skin is more prone to en­larged pores. Cleanse with a gly­colic or sal­i­cylic acid cleanser. Ex­fo­li­ate twice a week with Mon­roe of Lon­don Pore Min­imis­ing Mask, £35.

Retinol can help de­crease oil pro­duc­tion, which can help pores to ap­pear smaller.
