5 Tips For Minimizing Pores

It’s a fact, most people do not know that one of the main causes of acne is a buildup of toxins in the pores. The pores become clogged by dirt, bacteria, perspiration, and even excess oil. It may seem like a simple problem, but until you learn about the causes of pimples and how to clear up this problem, it will never go away completely and your pores will suffer and that’s not the goal. Many common over-the-counter skincare ingredients could be the culprit in making your pores and acne worse. While you may think that these ingredients are safe you’ll be surprised to learn that some of them are listed as "probable" as a carcinogen to humans which keeps you away from the radiant skin you desire. If you use the best products for clearing up breakout-prone and blemished skin, then you will not need to worry

These 5 tips will get you to glowing skin:

1. Use products with all-natural, plant-based ingredients.

The best products for minimizing pores do not include alcohols, fragrances, or dyes. Many companies try to convince consumers that their formulas are safe because they do not list any ingredients on the label that have been proven to be harmful to your skin. What they fail to mention is that these chemicals often create the most problems. They can clog your pores, irritate your skin, cause allergic reactions, and eliminate the need for harsh cleansers.

For instance here at Averr Aglow, we chose snow mushrooms versus artificially produced hyaluronic acid, a plant-based substance that will cause your skin to produce more collagen. This is the protein that provides the strength for your skin to remain healthy. It promotes a higher amount of natural hyaluronic acid in your skin. Hyaluronic acid helps protect your skin from the effects of aging. The benefits of snow mushrooms are well known, but one of the only ways that people are learning about them is by looking at products with this natural ingredient.

2. Use a good clay mask.

The best natural acne skin care products for minimizing pores contain both clay and plant derivatives that help to reduce oil production and keep your pores from becoming clogged, which in turn allows you to see clearer skin with reduced pores. Clay also helps to refine your skin by lifting dirt and debris which can cause pimples to form. It also is an antiseptic that will reduce redness and irritation caused by pimples. The magic behind our Clear Skin Elixir is that it achieves all of this and more. Strategically packed with potent natural-based ingredients, our mask is designed for all-night wear to work beneath your skin's surface and deposit nutrients that heal.

3. Use a good face cleanser.

Radiant skin is the way to go when looking for the best products for clear skin. Pore clogging can easily be avoided with the right cleansers. If you have acne or are prone to getting acne breakouts then you need to start using a daily facial cleanser at least twice a day. Our Radiant Cleansing Nectar relies on clean, natural ingredients to cleanse your skin. Instead of triggering more sebum production, this cleanser uses jojoba oil to nourish the skin and help balance production.

4. Use water-based moisturizers.

You can find moisturizers in endless formations, so choosing the right one to help in minimizing pores for a healthier glow can be daunting. However, you can never go wrong with a water-based moisturizer since all skin, regardless of type, age, and color needs moisture to stay healthy and heal if damaged. Oily and breakout-prone skin especially needs moisture — the body produces more oil as a natural reaction to dry skin, and acne scars require hydration to fully recover. Our No. 4 Flawless Water Crème offers a lighter layer under your sunscreen, and makeup, while at nighttime it provides deep hydration as your skin repairs overnight.

5. Wear sunscreen.

Sunscreen is a very important part of your skincare routine. Some sunlight can be good if you have proper protection from overexposure. But too much ultraviolet, or UV, exposure can cause wrinkles, dry skin, sunburn, and even skin cancer. Even if you rarely wear sunscreen, it is still important to keep your skin protected from the sun and other harmful rays. Here at Averr Aglow, we want you to feel empowered to protect your skin from the sun without sacrificing your gorgeous complexion. 

We hope that these tips for minimizing pores will help you achieve the results you want in dealing with breakouts, pimples, scarring, and aging. Remember that all-natural products are the best when it comes to skincare. You should avoid any product that has parabens and added chemicals. By using these tips for minimizing pores, you will soon have the healthy and glowing skin you dream of.
