Large Pores

Skin pores are a vital part of the skin’s structure, making it possible for oil glands underneath to protect and hydrate the skin. Although pores are essential, when they are enlarged or prominent they can be a source of frustration for men and women alike, as they are visible and may collect dirt and makeup, etc.

Suggested Treatments

Causes

Pores can become enlarged when they are infected or clogged with dirt, bacteria and oil. Typically prominent facial pores tend to appear during puberty to accommodate the increased production of oil by the glands under the skin. Individuals with thicker skin tend to display more obvious pores and older people are more vulnerable to having their pores become dilated beyond the normal size.
