Pores are necessary for the secretion of sweat and sebum, which helps to provide the skin’s natural barrier against the environment and keep the skin supple. Excess oil production causes the pores to enlarge to allow the sebum to flow. Pores then become clogged up with oil, as well as dirt and skin cells.
Once the end of the clogged pore is exposed to the air, it oxidises, forming a blackhead. Enlarged pores tend to be most noticeable in those with oily and/or congestion prone skin. Large pores can be genetic too, so if your parents had enlarged pores and suffered from acne or comedone prone skin, there’s a high chance you will too.
It’s worth remembering that very dry skin can also cause pores to flatten out and appear bigger. Enlarged pores are also a natural part of the aging process – as collagen levels deplete and skin becomes less firm and plump, the pores start to open. This can start as early as your twenties.
