If you want to flaunt an elastic skin like them, pore care is the answer. Pay attention to this article to get fine pores and elastic skin. Pore care tips to help you get celebrity-like healthy skin will be introduced.
Blood circulation slows down due to the dry environment in winter and as a result, it decreases metabolism and skin regeneration. If skin regeneration that involves the skin cycle of eliminating old skin cells and producing new cells does not work properly, the skin becomes dry easily and skin aging occurs more quickly.
Accumulated dead skin cells prevents the absorption of skincare products and leads to skin problems. Therefore, it is recommended to do exfoliation once to twice a week. Use a steamed towel to open your pores and then use exfoliators such as a scrub and a peeling gel to gently exfoliate your skin without irritating it.
STEP2. Deep Cleansing For Pores
The use of heaters in winter causes active secretion of sebum inside pores. Skin wastes such as blackheads accumulate in the skin easily, increasing the occurrence of inflammation and pimples.
If you want to have celebrity-like poreless skin, do deep cleansing to eliminate all residues and wastes inside your skin thoroughly. For sensitive pores, use a gentle cleanser to softly massage your face.
STEP3. Regular Skincare
Many people who are concerned about their pores have an unbalanced water-oil content of their skin. Irregular skincare routine affects the balance of water and oil content of the skin, causing excessive sebum secretion and other skin problems. Therefore, do skincare every morning and evening regularly to balance out water-oil content.
Applying a number of skincare products can give burden to your skin and so, try using functional products to give light yet perfect care to your skin. In particular, herbal skincare products are effective functional ones as they can be absorbed into the skin quickly by delivering nutrients deep into the skin.
