FAQ: How I Make My Pores Less Visible

By  | 

Having enlarged pores is a very common issue for us women [and even men]. Which is why I have decided to share how I try to fix mine up. Just like everyone else I have been left miserable looking for answers and fix for my pores. If I have the money to spend I would have opted out for a micro-dermabrasion to fix and heal my damaged pores. The major problem with pores is that when you don’t treat them right, they become clogged and enlarged. Ugh!

Microdermabrasion significantly lessens the appearance of pores by “roughening up” skin, therefore loosening the dead skin that clogs pores. It also stimulates collagen so skin looks really smooth. You can have it done by a pro; American Laser Center has medical professionals on staff to oversee treatment. -iVillage

Basically, I can also get myself a microdermabrasion system that I can use at home but even that is still heavy on the budget. Yikes! So I obviously chose to go for the least expensive one for a temporary fix. Better than nothing right? Moving on… Treating enlarged pores at home isn’t all that hard.
