Using Powder to Minimize Large Pores


Enlarged pores are a common problem affecting many people. Those who suffer with acne, or have in the past, are particularly impacted. And the problem only grows worse during the aging process.

While pore minimizing skin care treatments are readily available, some people either can’t afford one or don’t have one. There are also several products manufactured by a number of cosmetics companies that instantly reduce the appearance of large pores. For more details, click the link to access the article “Minimizing Large Pores” at the bottom of this page.

The Advantage of Using Powder to Minimize Pores
Though there are several ways to reduce the look of large pores, one of the most cost-effective is to use powder. It usually costs less than foundation or pore-minimizing skin care products. It's also easy to find at local retailers or online.

Almost any powder works when using the proper technique. Loose powders or pressed powders work equally well.

What Not to Use
Avoid using powders made of silica, which are most often labeled as “high definition” or “HD” powder. While HD powder offers many benefits as a setting powder, its texture simply does not work well when using the technique outlined in this article.

The Technique
All you need to get started is a loose or pressed powder and a fluffy powder brush. After applying foundation or other cosmetics, load your brush with the powder of your choice.

For this technique, you will apply the powder to areas of the complexion where you notice enlarged pores. But instead of sweeping powder onto skin, you will work it into the skin. To do that, hold the brush over an area where you want to minimize pores. Then gently press the brush directly against the skin while making very short, back-and-forth motions without moving the brush. You may need to apply some pressure to work the powder into the skin.

One issue some women face when using this technique is that they use too much powder. They may end up with an unappealing “caked on” look. To avoid this, use the least amount of product necessary to produce results. Follow up by spritzing your skin with a product like MAC Fix Plus to get a more natural look.

For those who can’t afford expensive pore-minimizing treatments or cosmetics, powder offers an inexpensive and easy solution. All you need is a brush and your favorite pressed or loose powder.
