Enlarged Pores

What are Enlarged Pores?

Pores are hair follicle openings and serve as the escape route for perspiration and other body toxins. Large or enlarged pores are more visible. They tend to be found on oily or aging skin and can get clogged with debris and oils, like sebum, that should flow out of pores.

Treatments

A good cleansing regimen is important to reduce sebum that plugs pores and causes them to enlarge. Choose a cleanser with glycolic acid, a natural exfoliator which purify the skin while removing dead skin cells. Pore-minimizing lotion and sunscreen can help disguise the size of the pore. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Enlarged Pores

Pores are nothing more than openings on the skin that house hair follicles. Pores may be small and unnoticeable, but a significant number of people have pores that are large and visible enough to make them self-conscious about the way their skin looks. These more visible pores are what people refer to as “enlarged pores.” Deep within pores are sebaceous glands that empty into the hair follicles. These glands produce an oily substance called sebum that lubricates and protects the surface of the skin from environmental damage. Skin cells are constantly being shed inside hair follicles, and sometimes the excess skin cells and sebum clog pores and create blackheads. People who have enlarged pores are also more likely to have blackheads.

What Causes Them?

Pores naturally increase in size around the time of puberty as higher hormone levels trigger the production of more sebum, and the pore has to expand to accommodate this outpouring of oil. Dead skin cells and sebum can also stick inside the openings of pores and cause them to expand and look larger. People who are acne-prone produce more pore-clogging sebum, so they’re more likely to have blackheads and enlarged pores.
