How To Minimize Large Pores

Posted by with Comments Off

Facials can help to minimize large pores.

Pores house a hair follicle and sebaceous gland which serves as a gateway for sebum, our skin’s natural oil. For the most part genetics determine the size of our pores however some pores tend to be larger because the hair follicle and oil gland are larger. Pores are generally clogged with sebum and dead skin cells, which naturally slough off however if this does not happen the pore can stretch causing the pore to become enlarged. Excessive clogged pores can lead to another unwelcome condition: blackhead and whiteheads. Other conditions that can cause a pore to enlarge are aging and sun damage which all lead to collagen loss resulting in less firmness of the tissue. Many people think that you can open and close pores. This simply is not true. Pores do not have a muscle around the opening to allow them to open and close. Another misconception is that you can get rid of pores. Truth is that you can make them less noticeable by using the correct skin care regiment.
