Dilated pores: how to tighten the dilated pores of the face? Our solutions.

Our skin suffers daily from multiple external aggressions, whether you live in the city centre or on the outskirts. Day after day, the pores of our facial skin can dilate and become visible. There are many reasons for this: excess sebum, oily skin, lack of cleansing, pollution, the passage of time, age, accumulated impurities, etc... Pollution, which causes blackheads and other imperfections, is the number one enemy of our skin. Discover today our advice and beauty solutions to reduce the appearance of dilated pores. 

WHY THE PORES OF THE FACIAL SKIN DILATE

WHAT'S A DILATED PORE?

By definition, a skin pore is a tiny opening in the skin of the face through which sweat and sebum flows.

How do you recognize him? It is dilated when it expands due to external aggressions or lack of care and gives the impression that it is a blackhead. When it is dilated, the skin becomes more easily oily and impurities and imperfections accumulate inside the pore: acne, sebum, blackheads, etc.

THE CAUSES OF DILATED PORES

EXTERNAL FACTORS

Indeed, dilated pores are caused by various factors but they are not a fatality. They are especially present on skin that suffers from excess sebum, which is oily and is generally accompanied by blackheads.

Dilated and visible pores are usually located on oily facial areas such as the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and on the cheeks. But it is also possible to have the entire face with dilated pores. The nose and cheeks are the areas most affected by this phenomenon. In this situation, dead cells and sebum gradually accumulate and the pores become even more visible.

MAKE-UP

Dilated pores become more and more common when you don't take enough care of your skin or don't notice them soon enough. The larger the pores are, the more impurities and everyday dirt will settle in. Afterwards, you will most likely see blackheads, acne and other blemishes appear.

Make-up is also one of the reasons that can cause dilated facial pores. In general, foundations fill the skin's pores and prevent them from breathing throughout the day. If make-up removal is not regular, day after day the skin becomes oily, the pores gradually dilate and acne may appear . To avoid these consequences, never forget to moisturize your skin with a suitable cream, serum or oil before applying your make-up. And above all, never skip the make-up removal stage. Moreover, we advise you to use organic and natural make-up, it's good for you but also for the planet! 

DEHYDRATED SKIN AND DILATED PORES

Having dehydrated skin means that you have skin that needs water. However, this type of skin is often closely related to dry skin, which needs oil. Your skin is dehydrated if your T-zone has a tendency to shine, you have dilated pores in certain areas and you feel tightness when your skin is subjected to external aggressions such as cold, wind, pollution, sun...

You should know that naturally, our body contains hyaluronic acid which has the role of hydrating the skin. Having undergone these attacks your skin has tried to defend itself and it is possible that the quantity of hyaluronic acid has weakened faster than expected. It is therefore necessary to give your skin the appropriate care to moisturize it in depth. Adopt a natural beauty routine that can only do you good!

Multimasking is a trend straight from Japan. It is a healing ritual passed down from generation to generation. 

THE MULTIMASKING ROUTINE: HOW DOES IT WORK?

All you need is 2 or 3 masks that correspond to a problem area of your skin (oily skin, dilated pores, blackheads, etc.).

The Green Clay Mask, Green Mask Cataplasm, is ideal for oily skin. It acts as a real blotter by absorbing and regulating excess sebum.
