While pores are essential to having healthy skin as they provide the necessary oils to keep your skin soft and hydrated, some people are born with a natural disposition to have unsightly, large pores.
If you are thick skinned (not figuratively), you already have a tendency to develop large pores. Over time, tiny cells will gather around the edges of your pores making them look larger.
The skin also thickens and looses its elasticity as a result of normal aging process. This decreased skin elasticity together with sun damage affect pores making them appear larger than they really are.
Another big source that contributes to the occurrence of large pores is the acne blackheads. When dirt and bacteria clog the pores, the natural body oils begin to accumulate within. This causes the pore’s diameter to expand.
Generally speaking, pores become more prominent when they are dilated, infected, or clogged with oil.
Genetics and age both have a role in appearance of large pores. And due to the hereditary factor it isn’t possible to permanently “shrink” large pores. You can manage them by making them less noticeable, but you can not get rid of them for good.
The good news is that enlarged pores are not a dangerous medical condition; they do not ordinarily harm the person having them with anything more than causing a little physical nuisance possibly combined with some degree of over-consciousness. Both of these effects in turn can easily be overcome with a small effort.
Out of fear or anxiety people often haphazardly try different ways hoping to remove or reduce their enlarge pores. But like a game of chance, they do not always get the same results. Many reasons account for this but the central to all of these is the fact that most people do not seek professional help to start with. They tend to trust more on word of mouth (since it worked for my friend, it must also be good for me) or lured by marketing hypes (this product is a major breakthrough, it’s going to change the entire industry’s landscape), etc.
If enlarged pores are your problem, and you are thinking to try something that works for you, ask for professional assistance by all means. If you have tried everything you knew of and nothing seemed to work, your problem definitely deserves expert attention.
