There are 300 000 pores on the face. During childhood the pores are nearly invisible because the sebaceous glands aren't active.
Oilier skins will naturally have lager pores due to the output of sebum. But the main cause is the cutaneous sagging with age (loss of firmness and elasticity). The diameter of pores is multiplied by 2 between the age of 25 and 50. Visible pores first appear in the T-zone and then on the sides of the nose and cheeks.
Milk Repair and Reactive Skin Cream are our best products to target pore sagging related to ageing. For oily skins we recommend Plant Harmonising Serum and Reactive Skin Serum.
There are many consumers that go to great lengths to avoid chemicals due to toxicity concerns, however there is a toxin that is far more dangerous and has far reaching effects.
This toxin is called STRESS.
I find one of the simplest pleasures for reducing stress is to give yourself a facial. Nothing relaxes you like a pampering mask. It makes you feel better about yourself and raises your good feeling hormones.
Meditation is also magic.
Next time you feel stressed ask yourself is this worth getting upset about? I find too often people becoming upset over the most trivial thing. Their stress levels are triggered so easily.
So this weekend do your skin and genes a favour and relax!
