What are large pores?

Pores are hair follicle openings that serve as the escape route for sweat and other body toxins. Large pores are more visible on the skin and tend to be found on oily or aging skin. Enlarged pores often get clogged with debris and oils, like sebum, that should flow out of pores. If you have larger pores, you are more prone to acne and breakouts.

The causes of enlarged pores

Most often, genetics determine enlarged pores. Unclean and oily skin can also cause oils to settle around the pores, making them appear larger as the skin around them thickens. Your skin will also thicken as a result of sun damage and aging, as both cause cells build up around pore openings.

Often, people will use makeup to hide their enlarged pores, but makeup can actually can make your pores appear larger, especially if it’s not properly washed off. Makeup can settle in around the pores, highlighting instead of hiding them. Cosmetics can also be a magnet for dirt and oils, causing enlarged pores to almost literally shine.

Lastly, as our skin ages, sebaceous (oil) gland, cell renewal activity, and collagen & elastin production all decrease, thereby increasing the visibility of pores.
