Why do we get Enlarged Pores?
Pores are like our body’s mechanism to breathe. Through our pores—the small, circular openings that cover our body—the skin is able to release sweat, oil and other body toxins. Typically, pores are small and unnoticeable, but many people experience enlarged pores, especially on certain areas of the face like the nose, cheeks and chin.
Enlarged pores occur for many reasons, and most are out of our control. Some people are simply genetically prone to have larger pores that are more visible. If you come from a long line of family members who have oily or thick skin, you are more than likely to experience enlarged pores.
The size of your pores is also directly related to the size of your oil glands. If your skin has a tendency to overproduce oil, the pores look enlarged. Other factors that can contribute to enlarged pores include sun damage, age and gender.
Benefits of skincare treatments
Skincare treatments can be an effective way to help cleanse the skin and promote the production of collagen, which helps tighten the skin and minimize the look of the pores. By cleaning the oil and debris out of the pores and exfoliating, the pores can appear smaller and you can retain a smooth, flawless complexion.
