Smooth skin:how to tighten pores?

In the morning, in front of the mirror, you scrutinize your skin:when you hope to find smooth skin and perfect skin texture, you come across dilated pores. Nothing serious, but when the pores are very large, they can make the skin look dull, give way to blackheads, and quickly become unsightly. Here are Veld's tips for regaining smooth, blemish-free skin!

Why do we have dilated pores?

You have surely noticed it, from one period to another, one can easily go from smooth skin without imperfections, to dull skin with dilated pores. In question ? Our beauty habits and our lifestyles, which influence the condition of the skin.

The pores are small openings in the skin, present throughout the skin tissue, to allow it to evacuate perspiration and sebum . Sometimes they dilate and become very visible, which blurs the complexion and makes it look dull. In addition, dilated pores will tend to evolve into blackheads and imperfections:impurities lodge there more easily and block sebum, which creates inflammation that evolves into comedones.

Several causes can be at the origin of dilated pores:

  • The use of care not adapted to your skin
  • Insufficient make-up removal and/or daily cleansing
  • Wearing comedogenic or overly covering makeup
  • Loss of skin tissue elasticity linked to skin aging
  • A diet that is too rich
  • Consumption of alcohol or tobacco
  • Pollution
  • Stress

To find smooth skin, without imperfections, and a nice skin texture, we have several tips to offer you!
