Caused by excess sebum, stress and/or pollution, large pores can ruin your make-up look and contribute to a dull complexion. The following products are all designed to refine pores for healthy and beautiful skin.
An award winning formula that both soothes and mattifies skin, Benefit’s Porefessional is a skin-perfecting staple. This lightweight balm creates the perfect base for make-up, filling in pores and smoothing uneven skin tone.
2. Pore Refining Toner by Sanctuary (£9)
Tightening pores and shrinking spots, this refreshing toner contains witch hazel. Oily skin will benefit from this ingredient, but dry skin may need a slightly less harsh formula.
Designed to be used every day, this silky serum mattifies the skin and refines pores without stripping away the skin’s natural moisture. On top of this, it also clears and calms acne so is an ideal solution for congested skin.
A great product for oily and porous skin, this formula cuts through grease and minimises pores without feeling too heavy on the skin. Clinique’s blend of silicon polymers helps bind hydration to the skin for a perfect make-up base.
Working as both an instant and long-term solution for enlarged pores, this instantly hides pores while working to shrink their size in just two weeks. Apply this formula under your moisturiser for a matte and smooth complexion.
A budget friendly product, Simple’s pore minimising cleanser can be used in place of your usual cleanser or as a clarifying toner. Instantly soothing inflamed skin, the balance of ingredients means it is ideal for even sensitive skin types.
