Pores are tiny openings on the skin’s surface, which everyone has. They are responsible for secreting liquids like sweat and sebum, which refresh and hydrate the skin. Some factors can influence how large and dilated they are and, consequently, how they look on our faces. Genetics is the primary determinant of pore size among many factors, such as skincare habits.
And what is the problem with them? There is none, in fact. However, their look bothers a lot of people.
WHEN DO PORES APPEAR LARGER ON THE FACE?
Large pores tend to be more common among people with oily skin since they dilate due to the increased sebum production by the sebaceous glands. The build-up of residues on the skin’s surface, coming from daily pollution and makeup, also contributes to this dilation. Depending on how you care for your skin, this accumulation of dirt particles can even obstruct them and evolve into blackheads and pimples.
Due to the loss of elasticity, aging is another cause of more evident pores. Again, there is no need to want to close your pores long-term. It’s not healthy or even possible. What you can do is prevent them from dilating and minimize the enlarged appearance so your skin looks more uniform.
5 STEPS TO TREAT LARGE PORES
- Cleanse the skin
Before minimizing their appearance, it’s necessary to prevent the enlargement of the pores. Cleanse your face twice a day with specific products, such as our Glycolic Acid Cleanser.
Exfoliating helps remove dead cells from the face and unclog the pores. It’s important to exfoliate at least once a week and do a light chemical exfoliation, for example, with Glycolic Acid Serum (soon available in the US) three times a week.
- Keep your skin hydrated
Keeping the skin hydrated with Hyaluronic Acid Facial Moisturizer or Facial Blending is essential when taking care of your pores. Moisturizing will make your skin produce less sebum, help combat the excessive shine, and reduce the size of pores.
- Skin treatment
- Use Makeup Remover
After wearing makeup, use a Makeup Remover (soon available in the US) to eliminate any residues that can clog the pores and eventually cause blackheads and pimples.
