Enlarged pores are small openings in your skin. They might seem tiny and insignificant but actually pores are more vital part of our bodies than we think. Since hair follicles, sweat and oil glands find their way out through pores, these tiny openings play an important part in keeping your skin and body healthy. Pores flush out toxins, regulate body temperature and keep skin oiled in order to maintain it vitalized and hydrated.
However, large pores generally don’t appear nicely. They attract attention and can even look similar to acne scars and pitting. When you look at people with flawless or porcelain like skin, you don’t see their pores. Also many complications arise when pores become enlarged. Dirt and excessive oil build up might cause acne and give your skin that tired, aged look.
A lot of individuals encounter this problem. The truth is that it is more difficult to treat than you might think. Often times, more advanced treatment methods carried out by skincare professionals is the right solution due to simple remedies, like creams or lotions, do not make any noticeable progress. Temporary improvements appear, but soon, you roll back to the unenergetic, troubled skin.
What are the causes for large pores?
Undoubtedly, the majority of skin related problems appear as we age, enlarged pores are not an exception. It is a natural phenomenon due to loss of collagen and sun damage, unhealthy lifestyle could also be a contributor. With age, our skin looses elasticity thus making pores to dilate. Our skin hardens, making cells to accumulate around edge of the pores thus stimulating the stretching process. Another factor that contributes to pore size is blackheads. When excess oil, dirt and bacteria get clogged in the pore, it forces it to expand.
Genetics is another major factor for having large pores. For people who hold hard and oily skin type, enlarged pores are more likely to appear.
