Open pores: how to treat them

Discover the best solutions for open pores

Pores are nothing more than small openings found in the upper area of ​​the hair follicles of the skin. But sometimes, the pores appear very open, bothering your personal image.

To treat and solve this problem, the first thing is to know what are the causes of enlarged pores on the face.

Although, normally, the size of the pores is determined by genetics, it is true that photoaging, oily skin and other factors can cause them to appear more in the so-called T zone of the face, which is the nose and forehead.

Causes of open pores

  • Excess sebum on the skin.
  • Combination/oily skin dehydrated
  • Obstruction of the follicles.
  • Stress and poor diet.

How to treat open pores

First, check your facial cleansing routine.
The first thing you should keep in mind is the importance of frequent deep facial cleansing.
If your skin is clean and free of impurities, you will prevent pores from becoming clogged and keep their size in check.
Knowing the importance of facial cleansing , wash your face twice a day with a gentle and facial cleanser to remove excess oil and impurities from the skin.
We recommend a facial cleanser that cleans deeply but is also respectful of your skin, like our Extra Gent's, facial cleanser for men.
It contains sea salt, which is a source of minerals that help regenerate your skin.
For us, it is the best option that exists to cleanse men's skin in a natural and respectful way.

Second, add a scrub to your facial routine

Scrubbing is a very important step to remove dead skin cells and dirt. However, scrubbing should not be done daily. Once or twice a week is enough.

Our recommendation is that you use a physical scrub, which will eliminate dead cells with the gentle massage that you will perform with the granules and your fingertips on your face.

Avoid chemical peelings that may be too aggressive on your skin. It could become unbalanced and redness, acne may appear, and the skin may become sensitive.

We recommend a natural scrub like our X-Foliate, which is formulated with micronized apricot kernels; a powerful ingredient that regenerates your skin gently and effectively.

The most natural solution to the problem of open pores is to scrub a couple of times a week to eliminate impurities and leave your skin softer, brighter and rejuvenated.

Third: use a pore-refining serum

Consider including a serum with specific ingredients to refine pores in your facial care routine, such as our Skin Recovery Serum.

Our pore-refining serum contains a selection of active ingredients to reduce the size of the pores on your face, such as Niacinamide, succinic acid, Cannabidiol, hyaluronic acid and propanediol.

All active ingredients are of natural origin and also have a great anti-aging function specific to men's skin.

Our Skin Recovery Serum will help you reduce and treat the appearance of existing open pores, treating your skin and leaving it even and smooth.

Its natural formula has a high capacity to penetrate the skin, eliminating impurities, blackheads and minimizing the appearance of open pores.

Fourth: use a facial gel or cream with the appropriate texture

As you well know, men's skin is more lipidic (oily) than women's, and, therefore, men need facial care products with specific textures that provide us with the necessary hydration, without adding more oiliness than necessary.

Therefore, we highly recommend that you use a facial gel or cream that is formulated specifically for men's skin.

If you use a "unisex" face cream, it may actually be formulated for women's skin, and have a texture that is too greasy for your skin type. This excess sebum can end up clogging the pores of your face, causing acne and even long-term sagging of your skin.

    To minimize the size of your pores and prevent your current ones from opening more, it is very important that you maintain a daily facial cleansing routine (even morning and night) with a respectful cleanser.

    It is also very important that you follow a weekly scrubbing routine (once or twice a week) to remove dead cells and other impurities from your skin.

    And as we have mentioned above, it is essential that you use a facial gel or cream with the appropriate texture for men's skin, and thus prevent your pores from clogging due to the use of creams that are too oily for your skin.

    Finally, it is essential to use a specific product to refine pores. Our recommendation is a product in serum format, since its light texture is ideal for men's skin.
    Our Skin Recovery Serum with its sebum-regulating ingredients, especially Niacinamide and Propanediol help reduce sebum, improving the appearance of pores.

    In addition, you will help combat signs of fatigue in your skin, since it is an excellent anti-aging serum formulated specifically for men's skin.
