What Causes Large Pores?

 

Large pores are caused by a variety of factors, most of which we can’t avoid. However, understanding what causes large pores can certainly help you find the best solution.

THE TOP FIVE CAUSES OF LARGE PORES

With a bit of investigative work, you can discover the root cause of your large pores.

The top five causes of large pores, include:

 

 

1. OILY SKIN

If you have naturally oily skin it’s likely you will have enlarged pores.

This is because when excess oil, dead skin cells and dirt collect in your pores, your skin swells and your pores look larger than normal.

 

 

2. THE NATURAL AGING PROCESS

Aging causes your skin to lose its elasticity, which can make your pores look bigger.

 

 

3. YOUR GENDER

Biologically, men generally have larger pores than women.

However, hormonal changes, like pregnancy, menstruation and puberty can increase the appearance of large pores in women.

 

 

4. SUN DAMAGE

Excessive sun exposure can make it seem you have big pores, by:

  • Thickening your skin

  • Reducing your skin’s collagen, elastin and water levels

  • Shrinking the tissue beneath your skin, which stretches the edges of your pores

 

 

5. GENETICS

If you have large pores on your face, it’s likely that someone else in your family also has large pores.

You might have also inherited thick or oily skin, which can cause your pores to appear large too.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
