The pore size you are dealing with now is an indication as to how much oil your skin produced as a teenager. The oiler your skin was in your youth the larger your pores are now as an adult. If you were constantly battling oil on your face and your skin rapidly pushed out more and more making it hard to keep the shine at bay then that process stretched out the walls of your pores creating the larger circumference that you are experiencing now.

If your oily shine was all over your face then as an adult you probably have large pores all over your face as well. If you only had to worry about the t-zone, then more than likely your larger pores are restricted to that same area. Okay, so now you know why you are contending with large pores, now you just need to discover what you can do to make them look smaller.

There are two things that will help you on your quest for smaller pores; exfoliation and red LED light therapy.

1. Exfoliation
Exfoliating your skin regularly will help slough away dirt, debris, and dead skin that glob together with oil and get stuck in your pores making them appear even bigger. Using an effective scrub, peel, or mask will pull out toxins as well as those dirt and dead skin cells that are stuck with your sebum releasing them from the confines of your pores.

Exfoliating 2-3 times a week will help your skin look smoother, increase cellular turnover, help your pores look smaller, and will help your other skin care products work more efficiently. It’s a simple step that can make a profound difference in the appearance of your skin.

2. Red LED light therapy
Red LED light therapy systems such as the DPL System (Deep Penetrating Light) or the Caribbean Sun Skin Rejuvenation Light use very specific wavelengths to penetrate into the layers of your skin where they repair, renew, strengthen, and rejuvenate.

These healing therapy treatments dramatically improve the appearance of your complexion promoting smaller pore size, fewer lines and wrinkles, a more even skin tone, and so much more.

You don’t have to be a victim of your teenage skin any longer. Both exfoliation and red LED light therapy are things you can do in your own home to get smaller pores along with a number of other benefits that will make your skin more beautiful.
