Minimizes the Appearance of Pores

You have as many as 1 million pores per square inch of your face. These tiny openings allow your skin to cool and provide it with oils to protect and lubricate its surface. But when pores become enlarged they can create unattractive blemishes. Mattifying treatments can reduce the appearance of pores to leave your skin looking flawless.

Mattifiers provide your skin with an oil-absorbing treatment that minimizes the appearance of pores while at the same time giving skin a smooth and matted finish that will last throughout the day. Mattifiers typically contain light-deflecting ingredients such as silica spheres and titanium dioxide, which can give a blurred appearance to enlarged pores. These ingredients brush on over pores rather than seeping into them to achieve an air-brushed look.
