Enlarged Pores are a common problem thatwe see every day. They are often coupled with skin that has a course texture. Coarse skin texture can be characterised by uneven tone, enlarged pores and lack of radiance.
Whether you have dry, oily or combination skin, regular exfoliation is vital to prevent your skin developing a coarse texture. As we age, the natural renewal process of the skin slows down, making exfoliation even more important to keep skin looking its best. Regular exfoliation is also vital to ensuring you’re gaining the maximum benefits from other products in your skincare regimen, as your other products will penetrate into the skin better.
WHAT CAUSES COARSE TEXTURE & ENLARGED PORES?
Skin cells regenerate deep within the epidermis – as new cells are formed, old skin cells migrate to the surface. Unless they are sloughed away, these old skin cells will build up on the surface of the skin in uneven patches, causing the skin to look dry and dull. The build up of dead skin cells can also lead to blocked pores and excess oil, resulting in blemishes and acne.
Enlarged pores can be caused by several factors and occur when oil and dirt collect in your skin, causing it to swell, making pores to appear larger than normal. Pores can also look enlarged due to the loss of elasticity in the skin as we age. Sun damage can contribute to this as it causes the skin to thicken and skin cells to collect around the edges of the pores, and stretches them.
Genetics may also play a part in the size of your pores, which means you’re more likely to have larger pores if your parents do and in general, males tend to have larger pores than females.
