Regardless of age or gender, the appearance of large pores is a common skin concern. Pores are used by the body to distribute skin-softening sebum (commonly referred to as “oil”). While everyone has visible pores, some naturally produce more oil, resulting in larger pores. Sebum also oxidizes when it reaches the skin’s surface, causing pores to become visible and appear larger. Pore size may increase with age as the skin loses elasticity.
With regular cleansing and gentle exfoliation, sebum is removed from the skin’s surface, resulting in less visible pores. Wearing a non-comedogenic mineral makeup will also help the complexion appear flawless.
