I have been taking care of my skin for years but one of the bad things I do is squeeze out all the "gunk" from the pores around my nose. The pores around my nose are larger and I have some broken capillaries around my nose. Not good! So I made a new year's resolution to stop doing this starting in 2017 and to find a way to shrink my darn pores! When I usually find myself with a skincare dilemma, the brand I turn to for help is usually Clarins. And I swear like a miracle, Clarins products always work!
I have been using the Clarins Pore Minimizing Serum ($54 at Clarins USA) for about a month now. I started using it each night and I use it in the day only if I am wearing makeup. I think it took about a week for me to notice that my pores around my nose were less noticeable. The Pore Minimizing Serum uses Alpine Willow Herb to help instantly tighten and minimize enlarged pores. It helps to keep the skin area matte too, giving you shine control.
I only use the serum on my nose area and mid-area of my cheeks. I put about one or two pumps of the light green serum in my hand and gently rub it into my skin. It is very light and absorbs quickly. It has a very light fragrance to it that dissipates once you put it on.
It's been paying off not squeezing my pores around my nose these past two months. Instead I am really focusing on cleansing my nose area using the Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract a couple of times a week.
