Pore Perfection!

You know how it is, you see the craters, you see the holes in your face.  For me, part of aging has been an increase in my pore size, and an increase in the oiliness of the t-zone.  I’m sure you oily skinned gals know the frustration I feel!

So what can you do to help tighten these pores and reduce the oil production?  Well in short, pretty much nothing.  My dermatologist says so, all the beauty experts say so.

But you can shrink the appearance of your pores, and help to control the oil production, or at least the impact of it!

Algenist - Multi-Perfecting Pore Corrector ConcentrateAs you have read in previous posts, I am loving what Algenist is doing.  A local, San Francisco based company, Algenist was created to find new energy sources.  However, with the discovery of algeronic acid, a skincare company was born.

The Algenist multi-perfecting pore corrector is a lightweight, oil-free serum that tightens pores, smooths roughness, and refines skin texture.  A serum that includes both the patented anti-aging Alguronic acid and salicylic acid (a well known anti-acne powerhouse), this serum has been amazing!

I personally use this every morning and night, on my t-zone – which is where my pores are the largest and most noticeable.  It’s been about a month, and while they certainly aren’t invisible, I do think there is a difference.  It is very gentle and has also helped with the general texture of my skin.

Give it a shot!  In combination with the Algenist moisturizer, and the IT Cosmetics primer, this is one of my core skincare products.  A little goes a long way, and this should last you 6+ months.

Grade:  B+ (but I reserve the right to improve it with time!)
