Pores be gone!
According to a study done by L’oreal Paris, nearly 47 percent of (U.S.) women would surrender a few daily luxuries in exchange for smaller pores. For example, 17 percent claim they would forego all forms of social media for a whole year.
So how exactly do we make our pores smaller?
First it’s important to understand why pores look larger on some people and virtually non existent on others. Some of it is genetics but for the most part pores are visible because they are clogged with makeup, sunscreen, an over production of oil on the face and even environmental pollutants. For some people daily cleansing is sufficient, but for those who need a little extra help, a facial cleansing tool can effectively get into those pores and lift the oil and dirt. Below are the 5 best facial cleansing tools on the market at the moment.
