When it comes to maintaining the appearance of gorgeous glowing skin, face masks can certainly play an important role in your skin care routine. And if your pores look enlarged, you may be wondering what you can do to help minimize their appearance. Here, we’re sharing our best face mask for enlarged pores as well as skin care tips (and other skin care products, such as facial cleanser) to help reduce the look of large pores.
Day after day, dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion feeling rough. The L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask is formulated with three types of clay (kaolin, montmorillonite, and Moroccan lava) and enhanced with red algae extract to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, exfoliate dead skin cells from skin’s surface, smooth the look of imperfections, and allow skin to breathe. Immediately after use, you’ll notice your skin texture appears refined and your pores appear tightened.
Using this face mask is super-easy. First, cleanse your complexion (don’t worry, we’ve got a facial cleanser recommendation coming up next!). Then, apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, avoiding your eye and lip area. Leave the face mask on for 10-15 minutes, then remove with water in circular motions to exfoliate. Use three times a week for best results—meaning you should definitely bake time into your schedule for a little R&R!
Every skin care routine should start with cleansing. When it comes to tailoring your skin care routine to address the appearance of enlarged pores, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser. This clay-to-mousse facial cleanser is formulated to remove everyday impurities, dirt, oil and pollution from the surface of skin without over-drying it. This facial cleanser also exfoliates for skin that feels smoother. Immediately, skin is purified of dirt, oil, and pollution and left with a clean, clear look. Use after use, pores appear minimized and imperfections appear less visible. Once a day, squeeze a small amount of facial cleanser into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage the facial cleaner onto your face using circular motions, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Remember to follow up with a moisturizer formulated for your skin type. Try the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. And finally, use our best face mask for enlarged pores, the L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, three times a week for best results.
Of course, you can also turn to makeup to help disguise the appearance of enlarged pores. Start by applying a primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Lock Makeup Primer, which smooths and refines your canvas. Additionally, this primer helps keep the look of shine at bay and blurs imperfections (such as enlarged pores) for a matte finish. Dot it onto your face and blend it in an outward motion or target oil-prone areas to deflect the look of shine. Follow up with a full-coverage foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation to further hide enlarged pores. Blend the foundation onto your skin with a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender. Complete your makeup look with a dusting of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Face Powder.
You’re now a pro on how to use a face mask for enlarged pores, as well as how to put together a skin care routine for enlarged pores and how to cover them up with makeup. For more makeup tips, check out The Makeup Routine for Large Pores.
