Open Pores


Wednesday, 19 October 2016 — The preferred regular home treatment for visibly open pores is now available online. Visit the page for MD Rx Melbourne Dermatology Open Pores Overnight Solution for information.


Open Pores

Products containing salicylic acid, capryloyl salicylic acid, lipohydroxy acid and retinoids are optimal for visibly open, congested pores (pores which are plugged by oils or wax and dead cells).

These ingredients need to be used on an ongoing basis by those who are prone to congested open pores.

It is important to keep the pores clear of debris — congestion stretches them and can leave them appearing permanently open (even once the retained material has been cleared) if the problem is allowed to persist for too long.

For visibly open pores which are not congested, use products containing high concentrations of Vitamin C (such as IS Clinical Super Serum Advance+ and Skinceuticals Serum 20 AOX+) which help reinforce and tighten the structure of the open pores by stimulating collagen production.

Products which help restore the elasticity of open pores can also help as a refinement to treatment (the only examples of these are Prevage MD, Ethocyn and Elastiderm).

Use antioxidants, sunscreens and retinoids to help prevent against the collagen and elastin breakdown which leads to visibly open pores.

Light-weight, oil-control sunscreens such as La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid are best if the open pores are prone to congestion, or if you have oily skin.
