Large Pores

Enlarged pores are more common than you may think. They affect both men and women of all ages. Pores are the small openings at the top of our hair follicles that cover the entire body. Our pores release sebum, our body’s natural oil, to naturally moisturize our skin to help keep it supple. Although large pores can be frustrating, pores are necessary for maintaining healthy skin.

Usually, genetics determine larger pores. But, oily skin, sun damage and aging can be other factors that make your pores look bigger.

While you cannot change the size of your pores, you can minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.

At-home treatment

Washing your face daily removes dirt, oil and other unwanted debris, which usually lead to clogged pores. Clay masks absorb oil and restore a natural looking glow. Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells from the upper skin layer. Exfoliation brightens skin as well as leaves you with a smoother texture. If you are routinely removing the dead skin cells that clog your pores, your pores will not stretch out and look larger.
