Pores are genetically determined meaning in short – you cannot reduce their size. Although you cannot shrink large pores, there are things you can do to help minimise their appearance. But what are pores?

Pores are little hair follicle openings from which the body is able to release sweat and toxins. Large pores are visible and tend to appear on those with oily skin and unfortunately can become clogged by sebum and debris making those with large pores more prone to breakouts.

Is There A Cause For Large Pores?

It is usually down to genetics, but as mentioned earlier, it can be due to oily skin as excess sebum builds up around pores making them look bigger. If makeup isn’t applied well, it can also result in large pores as makeup gathers in the pores which results in highlighting them, not hiding them. Not washing makeup off thoroughly can also make pores look larger as the dirt and oil it attracts can actually make pores stand out more.

Can Large Pores Be Prevented?

Unfortunately, you can’t fight genetics thus, you cannot change the size of large pores, but it is possible to minimise the appearance of enlarged ones.

  • Wash your makeup off completely at night. It is important to cleanse your skin. Make sure not to irritate nor over wash skin, by using a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type.
  • Toning is great for tightening skin and can help make pores seem less apparent, so find a toner that works well for you. And exfoliate. Exfoliating effectively removes dead skin cells which, alongside the toner, can tighten skin and make pores seem minimised. If your face will allow, maybe even consider a face mask to help tighten and shrink skin to help further conceal those pores.
  • Although you may not want to as it seems counter-productive, applying a good, water-based moisturiser suitable for your skin type is always good for skin. It will help nourish skin and effectively help prevent unwanted oils and dirt getting anywhere near your large pores.

The Best Way to Help Minimise Large Pores

A facial cleansing regime is the best way to help minimise large pores – cleansing, exfoliating and moisturising skin all work to help keep skin tight and unclogged to minimise the appearance of pores.
