I’m sure you’ve probably heard the comparison between an artist’s canvas and beautiful skin. The better the canvas, the better the art will turn out. And the healthier your skin is, the better your makeup will look (and last!).
Pore minimizing products are the kinds of things that women try, but don’t give enough time to really work. They aren’t instantaneous, but they can really help work on large or deep pores to shrink and clean them. And no matter what kind of foundation you wear, the smaller the pores the better.
I’ve gathered a few of my favorite pore minimizing products below, at a variety of price points. My favorite is Benefits POREfessional. I love using that around my nose and on my cheeks. It’s completely sheer but does the job!
