Do You Have Large Pores on Your Face? Does It Bother Your Appearance?

Your pore size is basically determined by genetics, sun exposure, your age and anything that can impact your sebaceous-oil gland. As you age, you lose your skin infrastructure, collagen and elastin, which support your skin pores. This can cause what is called 'open pores'.

Excess build up of skin cells and oil can also expand the follicle and cause enlarged pores. It starts when your oil glands make too much oil. This oil then combines with dead skin, dirt, make up and together they clog the pore. This blockage does not allow the free flow of the oil which makes the pores expand, causing enlarged pores. Enlarged pores are very common around the nose area, which typically has more oil glands. These blockages, once exposed to the air, oxidise, forming blackheads.

So how do we reduce our blackheads? It is really all about having an effective and consistent skin care routine.

How to Remove Enlarged Pores and Blackheads

The first and foundational step in any skincare routine is to remove makeup and impurities. One of the biggest reasons why enlarged pores occur is that people go to bed with their full make-up on. Make-up is one of the main reasons why clogged pores happen in the first place.

Use a gentle cleanser that does not dry your skin, such as Clear Gel Cleanse. If your cleanser is stripping away your natural sebum extensively, this will lead to more production of oil and you can enter a vicious cycle of over production of oil.

A very simple regimen, but it is important to “continue” these steps on a daily basis.

We developed Fleuri’s Clear Gel Cleanse as a makeup remover to be used daily without stressing the skin and actually make you realize the effect on pores.

1. Focus on Water

Clear Gel Cleanse is a makeup remover that focuses on water, the essence of life. The base water is produced by a patented process that makes it possible to reduce surfactants to the minimum. (Japanese Patent Application No. 2001-156837)

Real Reviews

It's working already!

I was really skeptical about the claims this product makes regarding clogged pores. But I can say that only have used it for 1 week there is a noticeable difference!

Blackheads are fading away!

I’ve only been using this cleansing gel for less than 2 weeks, and the blackheads keep getting smaller and smaller. And the crustiness that always came around my nostrils is gone.

5. Change the Future of Your Pores

Our starting point was an aesthetic salon that we opened in 2002. We have dealt with the problems of more than 20,000 women, and one of the problems that many women consulted us about during treatment was pores. Pores can be treated at aesthetic clinics, but if they are treated every day, it can cost a lot of money. If treated only once a month, the condition will get better temporarily, but it will eventually return to its original state. So we arrived at the answer: "In order to achieve truly healthy skin, basic skincare products must be fully functional."

First and most importantly, daily skincare is the key to treat pores. Especially, daily makeup removal, a step which removes makeup and impurities accumulated in pores, is important. Our Clear Gel Cleanse is a makeup remover chosen by many customers for its gentleness to the skin and effectiveness on pores.
