Poor cleansing habits and ageing can cause pores to appear larger. Here’s how you can minimise their appearance
We all have a love-hate relationship when it comes to pores – on one hand, pores are like the skin’s waste disposal system, secreting sweat to cool skin down, but oversized pores can make your skin appear rough and uneven. A buildup of sebum and impurities can also clog pores, causing them to appear enlarged.
To make matters worse, pores can appear even larger with age. Skin produces less collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid as it ages, affecting elasticity and firmness, hence causing sagginess and wrinkles. These factors inevitably cause pores to appear larger as skin is stretched and unable to bounce back, unlike younger skin which is springy and resilient.
How can we effectively minimise pore size then? Here are some simple ways you can achieve softer and smoother skin that looks flawless at ever y angle.
