5 Must-Try Pore Minimisers

One of the key ingredients to a perfect canvas is a flawless finish. Pores, the ducts in our skin attached to the glands that produce sebum (the size of which is determined by genetics), tend to make this difficult, especially on the occasion that they become visible.

To help combat this problem, beauty junkies have turned to pore minimisers—sometimes referred to as Photoshop’s real-life equivalent—to help them achieve an Instagram-worthy #FaceOfTheDay. Instead of merely covering up the pores, these products treat and refine them by removing excess oil build-up.

Smooth and silky complexions here we come!

Here are five pore minimisers for you to try out:
