There are so many contributing factors that can cause our pores to enlarge, particularly as we age. Our skin naturally starts to lose elasticity, causing it to stretch and sag, and resulting in our pores becoming enlarged. Years of sun exposure can also make our pores appear bigger.
There are many ways we can minimise their appearance, including regular face cleaning, exfoliating our skin, using face masks, applying SPF and frequent moisturising.
If you find that these tips simply aren’t enough, you can use makeup to cover up enlarged pores.
Start by applying a good quality primer. This will ensure that your makeup can be applied smoothly and stay put all day
Next apply your foundation. Look for a creamy foundation that has medium to full coverage, which you can build and blend easily to create a flawless finish
Top tip! Always remove your makeup before bed to prevent your pores from becoming blocked.
