Enlarged pores are more common than you may think. They affect men and women of all ages.
Pores are the tiny little openings at the top of 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 irritating, pores are necessary for maintaining a healthy skin.
Usually, genetics determine larger pores. Oily skin, sun damage and aging can be the reasons that make your pores look bigger.
Since you can’t change the size of your pores, you can minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. Learn the proper routine to follow in order to minimize pores.
WHAT CAUSES ENLARGED PORES
Your genes have a greatest influence in your pore size. People who have large pores often have family members with large pores.
As you get older, your skin suffers loss in elasticity, which causes skin to stretch and sag, making pores appear enlarged. Your skin also tends to thicken as you age, which causes miniscule skin cells to gather around pores, making the pores look bigger.
Sun exposure can make pores appear larger. Sun damage tends to thicken the skin, which causes bigger pores. Continuous sun exposure can remove collagen, elastin and water from skin- the tissue beneath your skin starts to shrink and pull at the edges of pores, making them sag and appear bigger.
Excess amount of oil and dead skin cells can cause your pores to appear larger than usual.
Open and enlarged pores on face are total eye sores. They are most visible in oily skin type and are an indication that your skin is aging. As they attract impurities from the environment, our skin becomes prone to blackheads, pimples and skin issues
Where Open Pores Are Most Visible
They are highly visible in areas with high oil content. Most likely in the T-zone of the face – nose, mid-brow region and forehead, skin over the cheekbones and chin.
Why Pores Enlarge
Pores tend to enlarge due to several factors like oily skin, pollution and aging. Oily skin attracts more impurities. These impurities settle within the pores causing the pores to increase in diameter. This in turn attracts more impurities from the environment and the cycle continues, making pores on face visible. The impurities present in pores, gets oxidized and turns greyish-black causing blackheads on face.
