One of the greatest tricks the beauty industry ever pulled was making people believe that they could get rid of their pores – and selling a huge collection of products off the back of it.
As you can read in our article: The hard truth about pores and why you can’t shrink or minimise them, the size of your pores is genetic. It’s not possible to get rid of them, shrink them, minimise them – whatever you want to call it – but it is possible to keep them clear.
There are also things you can do to prevent making your pores look bigger than they already are. This includes targeting oiliness because sebum can cause your pores to swell, which in turn causes them to become clogged and leads to breakouts.
You can also buy products, usually with silicone in them, which blur your pores. This means they simply mask their appearance, but they don’t get rid of them.
Until recently, Benefit POREfessional’s range of primers focused on the latter but it recently expanded to include skincare that promises to do the former – clear your pores, balance sebum production, and keep your skin looking fresh.
Here’s everything you need to know about Benefit’s Pore Care range.
The majority of products in the Benefit POREfessional skincare line are available in full sizes, and minis – other than the Sip moisturiser.
In addition to the products, which include cleansers, masks, and toners you can buy a cleansing wand. Its dual-headed design is used for cleaning your face, but also applying your face mask.
