Dial up the glow factor with Benefit’s new Porefessional range: expert skincare designed to clear clogged skin whilst reducing and smoothing the appearance of pores
Battling breakouts can be incredibly frustrating. Building a good skincare routine that gently cleans and treats is the first step to flawless skin – enter Benefit’s brand new the Porefessional skincare range. Building on the success of the brand’s cult favourite pore-smoothing primers, the new range of expert solutions has been specially designed to tackle the most common pore-related skin concerns: clogged pores, visible pores, and rough, uneven texture. Start your day with the Good Cleanup cleanser, which contains lemon extract to help pores look smaller and yuzu extract for smoother skin. Big foamy bubbles wash away impurities without drying or stripping the skin.
After cleansing, follow up with the pore-refining Tight n Toned Toner. It is packed full of powerful skincare ingredients to tighten the look of pores. Alpha hydroxy acids, like glycolic and citric acid, and polyhydroxy acid gluconolactone, help exfoliate and visibly reduce pores. Clever ingredients, like bisabolol and sphingolipids, help keep skin soft and hydrated. Over 91% of testers said their skin was smoother and their pores looked smaller after one month. Service you have cleansed and toned your skin, finish with the Smooth Sip moisturiser. The lightweight gel-cream formula provides a hit of hydration without leaving skin feeling oily or greasy, plus it contains skincare superstar niacinamide for smooth pores.
Whether it’s stress, hormones, or just one of those annoying unexplained breakouts, sometimes your skin needs some extra care and attention. Try the Deep Retreat clay mask, a creamy formula that digs deep into pores. Apply to clean, dry skin and leave on for 30 minutes or until completely dry. You can even see the pore purifying in action: dots will appear as the mask dries where oil is being drawn out of your skin. Rinse off and reveal refined, healthy-looking skin. Bring the spa home and give yourself a DIY facial by using with Benefit’s All-in-One Mask Wand, which has gentle bristles on one side to provide extra exfoliation and a gentle massage.
