Expert comment

Alina Kotova, cosmetologist

Most often, enlarged pores are a constant companion of oily skin. But sometimes the problem occurs for other reasons.

The skin must be thoroughly cleansed. The remnants of cosmetics and pollution «clog» the pores and over time they become very noticeable, comedones appear. For washing, use a cleanser — it is not enough just to rinse your face with water. Scrub your face 1-2 times a week.

A good result is observed after cryotherapy. Due to the action of liquid nitrogen, the pores are instantly narrowed. Such a «freeze» gives a lasting effect if done 15 — 20 sessions.

Another effective procedure is decontamination. An electric current acts on the skin and frees it from metabolic decay products. The number of sessions and their frequency is determined by the specialist.
