Some people struggle with prominent pores everyday. It’s frustrating for sure.
Why do some people’s pores look larger than others? As you may or may not know, blackheads aren’t dirt; they are plugs of sebum and dead skin the have darkened because of oxidation.
And even if you don’t have blackheads, skin care professionals warn that clogging can actually stretch your pores over time if you never clean them out. Try cleansing with a cleanser with salicylic or glycolic acid which will help dissolve the sebum. To loosen the dead skin cells that are “trapped” in the pores try to exfoliate on a regular basis as well.
If you aren’t seeing the results you want at home, try a stronger peel (20-40%) , microdermabrasion or light therapy with a licensed esthethician.
Your esthestician can recommend at home products with effective ingredients to combat the “clogging” of your pores.
Lastly, drink lots of water!! Your skin will thank you.
