So, there is no way to completely remove pores – you actually need them to regulate your facial skin oil production. But, you can do something if they are so large that they overproduce oils that make you look shiny. Enter the Corium Pore-Contracting Gel Mask.
A quick breakdown of the active ingredients
The Hyaluronic Acid provides antioxidants that provide protection against harsh environmental damage, ensuring that the ageing process slows down – hence this acid is given the “anti-ageing” beauty buzzword. That’s also why it can be used on all skin types.
The Pore-Contracting Gel Mask also contains Rosemary Leaf Extract, which contains an acid called rosmarinic. What it does it calms and soothes the skin that is easily irritated.
Included in the formula is the Portulaca Oleracea Extract, which, much like the Aloe Vera, is a succulent that has powerful healing properties. It’s applied on inflammatories like burns and small wounds to speed up the recovery process.
Aloe Vera acts as an astringent that reduces the size of pores, and it also soothes damage caused by the sun. Because of its water content, Aloe Vera is also a fantastic moisturising ingredient. Glycerin acts as a skin protector – it fills in the tiny gaps on the skin, forming a layer against harsh elements. It also works as a humectant that attracts moisture and locks it into the skin.
