Prickly pear: The pore minimizer
This up-and-comer (which, research suggests, could help control high cholesterol) is about to break onto the superfoods scene. Prickly pears contain antioxidants such as tocopherol, a form of vitamin E, as well as your skin’s most loyal ally: essential fatty acids.
In addition to keeping dry skin at bay, they can prevent your pores from becoming so big they can be seen from space. Omega-3s and omega-6s keep the layer of collagen beneath your skin hydrated, healthy, and intact, which in turn keeps pores tight, says Ostad. You can find the fruit’s oil in Abgur Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil Cream (abgurcosmetics.com).
