Six Common Skin Problems, Solved!
Problem #2: Enlarged Pores
Causes: Dead cells and sebum accumulate in pores. Over time, a buildup of this gunk causes pore openings to stretch.
Beauty Fix: While pores can't be "shrunk," regular use of retinoids and alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids can help purge pores of trapped debris -- and return them to their smallest natural circumference. Try an at-home peel such as Dr. Dennis Gross M.D. Skincare Alpha-Beta Peel Home Facial System (to order, call 888-830-7546).
Health Saver: Good skin-care habits, like removing makeup nightly, can help prevent pores from getting plugged. Also, UV rays can contribute to pore dilation, so be sure to protect skin from the sun.
