Prevent Enlarged Pores Forever With These Simple Steps – Men’s Oily Skin Care ✖ James Welsh

Hello everybody, welcome back to my channel where we talk about skin care, grooming, sometimes hair, so if that sounds like your thing, be sure to subscribe But today we're gonna be talking about enlarged pores, and why they just seem to be getting bigger

Sometimes in skin care, it's not always what you do that makes the biggest difference, but also what you're not doing that makes a big difference Whilst we have pores all over our body, we seem to be bigger on the face and without the right care, it's possible that they can look even bigger So with that in mind, here are some of the things that you might not be doing that are contributing towards larger pores So it's pretty obvious that clogged pores are one of the main reasons why your pores look big So an excessive amount of oil and dirt and dead skin, all that kind of stuff, gathering up in your pores can make them look bigger than usual, and it's kind of like dark in there, with all of that gunk in there

So to prevent clogged pores, we obviously need to clear them out, and the most obvious and easiest way to do that is to use a cleanser Regularly cleaning your face, um, is obviously gonna help prevent these larger pores, and it's the fastest way to remove dirt, excess oil, bacteria, pollutants, dirt, I think I said that, and dead skin cells that can actually lead to clogged pores as well So when your pores are looking big and clogged, wash your face twice a day This is obvious, you gotta wash away all the excess everything, making your skin look a lot cleaner and a lot brighter The best cleansers to clear out your pores will be really gentle ones, so look for gel cleansers, they're usually really, really good

Nothing too heavy that's gonna over-dry you Talking about clogged pores, the other thing that makes pores look huge is blackheads They're just so obvious We all know what they are They're the black things on your face

They're the result of pores being clogged by excess oil and sebum, and obviously these are like usually on the nose, people get them, um, on the cheeks sometimes, and then on the forehead usually too If you don't get rid of them, if you leave them in there as well just to kind of like oxidize more, and get blacker and deeper, they can actually expand the size of the pore as well, which once it's expanded, it's kind of difficult to- for it to shrink back up I talk about this all the time It's one of my favorite things to do, but chemical exfoliation is the best way to prevent these Prevent black heads

You need to prevent clo- uh, pores getting clogged, and to do that, you need to get rid of dead skin So using a BHA will usually work really, really well If you get blackheads, you're usually quite oily prone as well, and BHAs are perfect for that skin type BHAs work a lot deeper in the skin over AHAs, and they could remove excessive dead skin cells on the surface, but they also dig deep into our pores as well, to regather those like deeper set oils Another big one is sun damage

I hate, like, uh, I have a real problem with sun bathing or sun beds It- it makes me feel very claustrophobic Like, I hate sitting out in the sun And of course, sun exposure can make your pores look a lot bigger This is because sun damage and tanning actually thickens your skin, which makes your, um, skin almost like sponge-like

You know, when you see those old people in holiday (laughs) 'cause they're already horrible, but they're like dark brown, and their skin looks like thick, shiny leather That, basically Prolonged sun exposure also can remove elasticity Elastine, collagen, water It's dehydrating you, which actually make your pores sag

So like, they kind of like- they don't- they don't get bigger, but they just kinda go, which makes your pores look a lot bigger So guys, don't use sun beds excessively Like, maybe have one before you go on holiday Hide from the sun, wear a massive hat, stay inside No

Don't do that Just use a good sun protection Sun screen We all know how important it is, but especially when you're on holiday, or purposely out in the sun It's an odd one for me, 'cause I feel like people sunbathe to look younger and better, but it's gonna age you by like 20 years

It's- it's a very odd concept to me Another main reason for pores is not moisturizing If you've been subscribed to me for longer than like six months, and you don't moisturize, you are in very, very big trouble, 'cause it's one of the most important things to do in your routine, not just for pores, but in general Obviously, moisturizing every day reduces the chance of getting a very, very dry skin, or overly oily skin even Both of which can cause acne

So from one spectrum to the other, both can cause breakouts Of course, when you have acne, or um, if you have overly oily skin, that can cause irritation, which lead to dryness and it makes large pores If you have oily skin, you're not moisturizing, you could got even more oily, which leads to clogged pores, and blackheads, which leads to large pores So a very vicious cycle, if you don't moisturize Also, the gentle massaging of your face when you're applying moisturize can help stimulate the blood flow, and new cell generation as well, which is nice, 'cause that keeps us looking young

It keeps our skin looking fresh, and our holes looking nice and tight My favorite thing when it comes to moisturizing is overnight moisturizing So moisturizers with things like, um, antioxidants in are very, very good Uh Vitamin C

Retinol These will help maintain and increase the skin's collagen and elasticity, which will keep your skin looking nice and toned, and firm, and like a little bit dewy I'm really shiny, you see Wow So when it comes to moisturizing, really listen to your skin

But twice a day is usually good, using one specifically for the morning, and then using moisturizer in the evening as well Like a heavier one If you have oily skin, don't be afraid of a very heavy moisturizers in the evening Um It will do you some good

I find that it helped balance out my oils massively, massively, massively A few other things you could do, um, avoid heavy alcohol in toners and products Diet is also a very important one, but I don't know how, but I feel like I should say that, because I feel like it's the cause of everything (laughs) Basically, a good skincare routine, and a common sense is gonna keep your pores, and your skin in general, looking nice and small So yes, I hope this video helped in some way

I hope you learned something, and I hope you learned that prevention is key So instead of worrying about it when it happens, prevent those large pores, and we'll never have to worry about that, but that is it for me now, guys I will see you next time
