the skin pharmacy serum
Serum No. 5 (The Pore Refining Serum), $139.90, The Skin Pharmacy

Pores are more than just tiny crevices on our skin surface. They are vital in helping our body maintain a healthy equilibrium by excreting waste substances like excess sodium and heat through perspiration. However, they also become ideal for the accumulation of sebum and dirt, which can lead to comedones, enlarged pores and a rough skin texture.

Add this duo-action serum into your skincare arsenal to help refine skin texture. It is packed with powerful plant-based astringents, including cinnamon bark, ginger root and potassium officiate (burnet) root extracts to regulate sebum production, as well as tighten slackened pore walls. It also contains lactic acid and salicylic acid to stimulate cell turnover so that your skin becomes smoother and more radiant over time.

To minimise irritation on sensitive skin, this formula is free of parabens, alcohol, added colouring and artificial fragrances; only gentle and natural preservatives are used. So go ahead and put your best face forward as you regain clearer, smoother skin.
