Enlarged Pores Skin
What is an enlarged pore?
A pore is a tiny hole that allows the excretion of sebum and sweat. A dilated pore is therefore completely open. It is located on the face, on the cheeks, around the nose and especially on the T zone, where the sebaceous glands are the most numerous, and therefore produce the most sebum.
Difference between enlarged pores and blackheads
Do not confuse enlarged pores with blackheads. When the pore channels are opened, impurities will lodge there and clog them. The pore is hence completely blocked, resulting in the formation of blackheads.
Causes of enlarged pores
Poor habits and products
- Poor skin cleaning habits.
- The use of comedogenic products that do not allow the epidermis to breathe properly.
Aging of the skin
Large pores are natural and can increase with age. Thus with time, the skin loses its elasticity as the sebaceous glands continue to produce sebum. The pore widens because the entire structure around it collapses.
Tobacco and UV rays are two factors that worsen the dilation of the pores. Again, the loss of elasticity in the skin will create large pores.
How to treat and reduce enlarged pores?
The treatment that I offer with natural and non-aggressive products will help treat large pores.
First, a gentle and daily double cleansing of the skin, followed by an exfoliation based on fruit acid and acid salicylic. Finally, a treatment phase with Bakuchiol, Retinol and vitamin C, as well as a hydration based on hyaluronic acid.

Enlarged pores skin routine
In the evening, remove your makeup with the oil-based makeup remover in order to easily dissolve all the day’s impurities. The Prodige Démaquillant Hydratant (Hydrating Make-up Remover) contains 5 high quality, non-comedogenic vegetable oils which will regulate the production of sebum for a clear and mattified skin.
Apply the make-up removing oil to your face, neck and bust, then massage them well until the product is fully absorbed. Soak a cotton pad in water and wipe your face, neck and bust up to four times to remove all the makeup, re-soaking the cotton pad each time.
After applying the make-up removing oil, spray the mist on your face. The Brume Perfection (Mist of Perfection) is a combination of Aloe vera juice and English lavender, green myrtle and cistus ladanifer floral waters. It is purifying, astringent, soothing and invigorating.
In the morning, use Prodige Démaquillant Hydratant (Hydrating Make-up Remover) to hydrate and regenerate your skin. This makeup remover contains 5 high quality, non-comedogenic vegetable oils which regulate the production of sebum for a clear and mattified skin. Apply the Hydrating Makeup Remover all over the face, neck and bust area, and then massage until well absorbed. Thanks to the 5 vegetable oils it contains, the Hydrating Make-up Remover has a moisturizing and soothing effect on the skin. This is why we advise you to keep it on your skin as long as possible before removing it with the disc.
After the above step, spray Brume Perfection (The Mist of Perfection) on your face. This product is a combination of Aloe vera juice, English lavender, green myrtle, and cistus ladanifer floral waters. It is purifying, astringent, soothing and invigorating.
Apply the Lotion Exfoliante Parfaite (Perfect Skin Exfoliating). This lotion helps regulate the sebum, clean the skin and stimulate cell renewal through gentle exfoliation.
Masque Clarté (Fair Skin Mask) can be used 2 to 3 times a week instead of exfoliation. This mask smoothens skin texture and shrinks pores.
The Lotion Exfoliante Peau Nette (Clear Skin Exfoliating Lotion) made from 2% salicylic acid eliminates dead cells and combats blackheads and imperfections. It also regulates sebum, shrinks and reduces pores.
You can use it 3 to 4 times a week, or every day according to your skin’s needs. Be careful with sun exposure: Always wear sunscreen after your treatments.
Three aqueous serums with complementary effects. Pick two based on your taste and preference.
Sérum Perfection (Anti-Blemish Serum)
This serum is made from a combination of Bakuchiol, Retinol and Niacin amide. The association of these three molecules has the power to regenerate cells without causing irritations. It reduces imperfections and large pores, tightens skin texture, and soothes inflammation.
Sérum Hydration Intense (Intense Hydration Serum)
Oily and combination skin with large pores need hydration just as much as any other skin type. The lipid barrier must be protected and strengthened in order to allow the skin to properly regulate itself. This serum offers you the ideal combination for a well hydrated, plumped-up skin.
Sérum Longévité (Long life Serum)
The Long Life Serum helps to dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores while hydrating, brightening the skin and soothing inflammation.
Eye Care Routine
When used simultaneously, Hydrance Yeux Glamours (Glamorous Eyes Hydrance) and Regard Prodigieux (Prodigious Look) work as a perfect hydrating, anti-ageing and plumping eye care treatment. As a result, your eye area is revitalized and brightened, and your lips enhanced thanks to the immediate tightening effect of the products.
The combination of Sérum Perfection (Anti-Blemish Serum), the Sérum Radieux (Radiant Serum) and the Crème Jeunesse (Forever Young Cream) boosts the anti-inflammatory effect and reduces dilated pores.
Sérum Perfection (Anti-blemish Serum)
This serum is made from a combination of Bakuchiol and Retinol. The association of the two molecules has the power to regenerate cells without causing irritations. The Anti-blemish Serum reduces imperfections and large pores while tightening the skin texture and soothing inflammation.
Next is Sérum Radieux (Radiant Serum)
UV rays damage skin cells, which stop working properly, disrupting the functioning of the pores. It will hence be more difficult for them to evacuate the sebum, which in turn will cause dilation. This serum will neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals and protect the skin against oxidative stress.
Finally, comes Crème Jeunesse (Forever Young Cream) made from Bakuchiol, a natural alternative to Retinol. This cream reduces wrinkles, brightens complexion, treats acne and makes the skin flexible and hydrated.
Use Masque Éternel (Mask of Eternity) 2 to 3 times per week. This mask is loaded with Centella Asiatica that inhibits inflammation and is very efficient for enlarged pores.
Eye Care Routine
The powerful duo of Hyalo C Velours (Hyalo C Velvet Eyes Serum), made out of a synergic combination of three powerful antioxidants Vitamins C and E and coenzyme Q10, in addition to the Regard Prodigieux cream (Prodigious Look), which contains Royal Jelly and Hyaluronic acid, targets visible signs of aging such as crows’ feet. The combination of these two products intensely smoothens and improves the appearance of puffiness and dark circles.
