What is a good routine to get smooth facial skin. I have noticed that as I'm getting older that my skin is getting more porous... Especially around the nose and under the eyes. Are there any products that you would recommend that dont cost a arm and a leg?

Answer

There are two main factors that contribute to large pores: genetics and age. People who have skin that is naturally thick and oily tend to have larger pores. As people get older, too, sun damage and decreased skin elasticity can cause pores to dilate. The skin thickens, causing tiny cells to collect around the edge of the pores and make them look larger. Blackheads are also a big contributor to large pores. When the pore becomes clogged by dirt and bacteria, oil within the pore begins to accumulate, causing the pore’s diameter to expand.

The good news is that the appearance of large pores can be greatly reduced in a number of ways. For example,

Cleansing the pores of debris, excess oil, and bacteria will significantly reduce their prominence. This can be achieved by using a low-strength topical medication or face wash with Alpha HA s, Beta HAs or Poly HAs
Exfoliation is also a key to minimizing the appearance of large pores. This can be accomplished using at-home facial scrubs or in office Microdermabrasion and Alpha Hydroxy and Beta Hydroxy Peels
Any treatment or products that increase the collagen content of the dermis will improve the size of the pores.

There are traditional at-home therapies available such as home prescriptives containing Alpha and Beta Hydroxy acids as well as the NeoStrata brand which is only available at doctors’ offices. Neostrata Ultra Daytime Smoothing Cream with SPF 15 and Ultra Smoothing cream are formulated with anti-aging, rejuvenating benefits for daytime moisturizing and broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection against daily casual sun exposure. Over time these products will reduce the appearance and size of the pores.

Any treatment or product that increases the collagen content of the dermis will improve the size of the pores. A combinations of collagen inducing treatments such as Titan®, Laser Genesis ™ or Pearl laser combined with Beta Salicylic Acid Peels and Transdermal Mesotherapy can improve collagen content in the dermis and thereby reduce the size of the pores
