You don’t have to suffer from enlarged pores, blackheads, whiteheads or spots- effective treatment is available.

Pores appear when the hair follicle duct becomes blocked with sebum (oil) and dead skin. If the pores are open the contents oxidise & darken and appear as blackheads. Whiteheads are the same but with the neck of the duct sealed, as shown below.


These conditions will respond to appropriate skin care. Medical grade skin care has a higher concentration of active ingredients and is much more effective than anything you can buy over the counter.

For a skin regime to tackle pores I would recommend exfoliating and, also, an oil control toner. Furthermore, where pores have been present for some time, the cells can lose their elasticity such that the pore channel will not close, even once it becomes clear. A product which specifically target pores can be helpful.

A medical grade facial will also greatly assist the extraction process and has been proven to improve acne skins.

If there are acne pimples and cysts then further treatment is available. Early intervention is recommended as it will significantly reduce the risk of scarring.
