Pore Size and Cleaning:

One very unpleasant fact of life is that our pores appear larger as we age, especially around the nose. Often, these pores are much more noticeable if you have oily skin, but even women with dry complexions can suffer from large pores within the dreaded T-zone. Most enlarged pores on the face are the result of hereditary factors, more than anything else. If your mom and dad had them, you may too.

A pore is an opening for a sebaceous oil gland, but, contrary to what many beauty therapists may tell you, they can't be opened or closed. Using products may have a very temporary 'tightening' effect on pores, but it's short-lived. The alcohol in the products cause the capillaries to dilate and the tiny erectile muscles of the pores to tighten, making pores look temporarily smaller.

Enlarged pores are prone to blackheads and whiteheads (milia) which can be unsightly.

Creamy Clay Soap

This is a great all-purpose bar. It is designed for normal to oily skin. The bentonite clay is supposed to absorb surface skin oil without excessively drying the skin. We believe that especially strong, astringent soaps used on naturally oily skin clear away too much surface oil causing the skin to compensate by over producing more oil, thereby exacerbating the problem.
