Enlarged pores. If you haven’t thought about them yet, put them on your radar. It is bound to happen to most of us- over 300 million women globally have this skin issue. In the past, dirt and oil have been considered the culprits to this problem, but recently it’s been discovered that aging is another cause. Skin loses its elasticity as we get older, causing our skin to sag, pores to get larger and our face to generally appear older. But Kiehl’s has come to the rescue with their latest product, Dermatologist Solutions Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate ($64). While the title may sound like a mouthful, it really is the “fountain of youth” in a bottle. This new formula contains micro-filtered yeast extract and geranium essential oil – components that permeate the skin and tighten pores, resulting in a more youthful glow.
It’s perfect timing, too, as we embark into the early trenches of spring. According to Dr. Adam Geyer, Kiehl’s Consulting Dermatologist, “Coming out of the dry, colder season when pores tend to be less apparent, now is the time to focus on the use of a product that works to diminish the diameter of facial pores so that they are less likely to fill with sebum and debris and appear more prominent throughout the hotter summer months.”
