There are two main factors that contribute to large pores: genetics and age. People who have skin that is naturally thick and oily tend to have larger pores. As people get older, too, sun damage and decreased skin elasticity can cause pores to dilate.


Pores are essential to your skin's health by providing oil to keep skin soft and hydrated. However, you don't necessarily want to be reminded of their existence every time you look in the mirror. Pores are more prominent when they are dilated, infected, or clogged with oil, making them appear larger than they really are. While it isn't possible to permanently "shrink" large pores, there are a number of ways to make them less noticeable. After your personal skin consultation I can recommend which treatment is right for you.

The appearance of large pores can be greatly reduced in a number of ways. For example, cleansing the pores of debris, excess oil, and bacteria will significantly reduce their prominence. This can be achieved by using a medical topical medication or face wash containing retinol or vitamin C. These antioxidants help the skin increase collagen and elastin production while simultaneously loosening dirt and oil from the pores.


Large pores may be bothersome early in life yet they can actually present some benefits as

the skin begins to age. People with large pores tend to have oily skin, which can help counteract the drying and wrinkling of the skin that occurs with age. Although conscientious skin care is important for people of all ages and skin types, those with large pores can embrace the fact that their skin will likely retain its natural moisture well into their later years.
