The 3 Best Ingredients To Shrink Large Pores
It's no secret that having high definition smooth and luminous skin is something everyone is after. But how do you keep your complexion looking flawless at all times? The key to an airbrushed finish is to minimize pores and Eminence Organics Mangosteen Lactic Collection is your new best friend when it comes to pore tightening. Our unique Lactic Acid Complex is in each product in the Mangosteen Lactic Collection and contains three superstar ingredients to give you the #nofilter glow of your dreams without layer upon layer of cosmetics. Keep reading to learn about the three best ingredients to shrink large pores.
1. GENTLY EXFOLIATE WITH LACTIC ACID
The first step to minimizing pores is exfoliation. For the best pore minimizing results, regular exfoliation is recommended to loosen dead skin cells (How Stuff Works). Keeping your pores clean and free of debris will ensure they do not expand further. Dead skin cells tend to build up around pores, causing this common problem known as mechanical dilation. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are excellent chemical exfoliants which loosen the 'glue' that holds dead skin cells on to the skin's surface and help solve the problem. Lactic Acid is an AHA gentle enough for daily use -even for the most sensitive skin- and is more hydrating than other AHAs.
2. TIGHTEN PORES WITH RED CLOVER FLOWER EXTRACT
To help prevent mechanical dilation of large pores, Red Clover Flower Extract -the second ingredient in our Lactic Acid Complex - works to correct three main causes of enlarged pores: dead skin cell buildup, excessive sebum production and loss of elasticity (Livestrong). Red Clover Flower helps by eliminating debris around the pore opening. Paired with Lactic Acid, these two ingredients help treat and prevent the mechanical dilation that causes large pores.
By default, if you have oily skin, you probably have larger pores to facilitate the distribution of sebum. Red Clover Flower works to reduce oily skin, minimizing the appearance of large pore openings. Lastly, it's no secret that skin begins to sag as we age, but did you know that loss of elasticity extends to your pore walls as well? Red Clover Flower helps to increase pore contraction, restoring the poreless look of skin we have in youth.
3. SMOOTH SKIN WITH RIBOSE
To further smooth skin, Ribose works to visibly increase the look of skin elasticity and firmness. The result is a natural airbrushed finish without pore-clogging silicone or makeup (National Center for Biotechnology Information). The Ribose used in the Eminence Organics Lactic Acid Complex is sourced from organic corn seeds and is a natural ingredient for promoting your best, smooth skin. All three ingredients complement one another, creating balance in our Lactic Acid Complex.
