Why am I prone to shine and large pores?

Tout vient d’un dérèglement de la glande sébacée, le “petit sac cutané” qui fabrique le sébum. Si le sébum est d’abord là pour protéger votre peau de la déshydratation, il arrive que sous l’influence de différents facteurs, sa production s’emballe. Les pores finissent alors par se dilater et les imperfections pointent le bout de leur nez.

Brilliance and dilated pores: How to purify your skin?

Shine and dilated pores... Two phenomena we'd all like to forget. Often associated with oily skin, dilated pores, shine and blackheadscan occur in all skin types at any time of year. In fact, because these manifestations are linked to "skin condition", a cutaneous state influenced by external factors factors (notably our lifestyle), but also by by internal factors (hormonal variations, stress, certain medications) and can change over the course of the year. Discover our guide to all the keys to having beautiful skin, without shine or dilated pores.

 

Why do we get visible pores? 

As mentioned above, large pores are caused by a disruption of the sebaceous gland, which produces sebum. Under various factors, the sebaceous gland goes into overdrive and produces large amounts of sebum. Sebumwhich participates in protect the skin from dehydrationSebum is really necessary for the good health of our skin. But when its production is too important, it can also tend to block the pores and cause imperfections...

And it is precisely because the skin produces too much sebum that the pores end up dilating, trying to "breathe". Unfortunately, this opens the door to impurities, which are likely to lodge there and create blackheads and pimples... The phenomenon of dilated pores can also occur when the skin ages because it loses elasticity. The structure of the dermis ends up collapsing.

 

How to treat visible pores?

To have a beautiful skin and especially to knock out shineTo get beautiful skin and above all to knock out shine, we adopt a complete skincare routine combining essential daily gestures (make-up removal and cleansing) with specific, more treating treatments (serum, face mask, etc.).

 

The double cleansing of the skin when you have dilated pores and shine

Cleansing oil

There's a misconception that a balm or cleansing oil will only make shine worse. shine andand imperfections on skin that already produces too much oil. Quite the opposite: make-up-removing oil is the best option for removing make-up, attracting all greasy substances (including sebum) like a magnet. Unharmed, the epidermis will stop excess sebum production. Day after day, as soon as you start cleansing, you'll be helping to rebalance your skin in a gentle, long-lasting way. What's more, as the oil seeps in, it also begins to soften blackheads, making them easier to remove during your next professional treatment. Make-up removal oil is applied as a first step, and its action is completed by a suitable cleansing gel.

The cleansing gel for a flawless complexion and tighten dilated pores

In the second step, to refine the result and cleanse deeply, follow the oil or balm with a soap-free, foaming facial cleansing gel. This will refine cleansing and gently gently treat shine and dilated pores (It can also be used on its own in the morning to refresh the skin). Clay, Mint, Tea Tree... We prefer purifying purifying and regulating active ingredients for clear skin!

 

A soft exfoliation to unblock pores

Exfoliation is the ultimate "beautiful skin" gesture (provided it's gentle and doesn't cause irritation)! By eliminating excess dead skin cells exfoliants optimize the penetration of active ingredients. They enhance skin's softness and radiance, while also combat minor imperfections(brown spots, pimples, dilated pores). It's also the key to unclog pores and restore a clear complexion instantly. Rather than a classic grainy exfoliation that could aggress the skin, we opt for fruit acids, salicylic acid or glycolic acidExfoliation also stimulates cell renewal, leaving skin looking new and elastic for longer!

 

Protect your skin with a vegetable oil to treat enlarged pores and shine

Once again, let's dispel the preconceived notion that an oil is bound to weigh down combination to oily skin (which is the type of skin most prone to shine and dilated pores). problems of shine and dilated pores). All you need to do is choose the right oil. Choose dry, regulating oils (and why not repairing oils for mature skin). To be applied every evening after the Double Cleansing ritual, and possibly in the morning to protect your skin, the'vegetable oil will also help regulate sebum production. To maximize results, I add a few well-chosen specific gestures to my routine. Purifying toner, cleansing mask, light moisturizer... I choose from among these adapted and targeted treatments to offer myself the most complete routine, targeting shine, dilated pores, blackheads and imperfections.
