Adding a few steps to your daily skin care routine will help make your pores cleaner and less visible. “You have to integrate a few steps into your beauty routine,” Büttner says. “Cleansing, sun protection, oil-free protection. It has to be daily routine like brushing your teeth. You should see the results within a few days once you start your routine. “

“If the skin is particularly shiny in certain areas like the T-zone look for a silicone based product with Enantia bark, Niacinamide, yeast extract, horse chestnut, panthenol and caffeine to reduce and regulate oil production,” Sherrard recommends.

For an added boost Büttner suggests investing in a rotating brush. “If you can afford it, get one of the rotating brushes, it’s adding a massage, and it’s kind of fun. It’s even more intense in terms of cleansing and removing dead skin cells. It can double the efficiency.”
