From Dermatological Surgery, March 2016:

 

Enlarged pores is a common cosmetic problem affecting the face of male and female individuals. Potential factors that contribute to enlarged skin pores include excessive sebum, decreased elasticity around pores, and increased hair follicle volume.

 

Because various factors cause enlarged facial pores, it is important to identify the underlying causes to be able to select the appropriate treatment.

Treatment options include topical and oral treatments to reduce sebum production, light and laser treatments targeting sebaceous glands or hair follicles and intradermal botulinum toxin injections.

Why Your Skincare Should Be Fragrance Free

Published by . Filed under Skin Laser Clinic, Skin Treatments, Skin Treatments London, Skin Treatments North London, Skin Treatments South East. Total of no comments in the discussion.

While everybody loves things that smell nice there’s good reason to avoid fragrance and perfumes in your skin care and makeup – especially if you have sensitive skin or conditions such as rosacea, eczema and acne.
Whether from synthetic or natural origin (including essential oils such as lavender and citrus ingredients too) fragrance is a skin irritant. They are sensitising and the most common cause of allergic reactions. Irritation and inflammation inhibit skins ability to heal and encourage collagen to break down leading to redness, rashes, wrinkles and seriously unhappy skin.

 

The effects are cumulative so may not show on the surface straight after applying if you have normal skin. However skin that’s already compromised by conditions like rosacea or sensitive post laser treatments, fragrance is bad news.

 

High concentrations of fragrance are now the norm in most skincare and many makeup products. So it can take quite a bit of time, research and reading labels to discover which ones are truly free from fragrance.
