It is true you can do only a little about treating your enlarged pores as basically it’s not your skin care but your genes that determines the size of the pores. As you age, the pores on your face get bigger due to sun damage, using chemical laden products and above all due to the loss of elasticity. Pores are associated with oily & thick skin but as you cross 30 you may see your skin acting weird. With right anti-aging skin care products you can get rid of enlarged pores to some extent.
What causes Enlarged Pores?
Enlarged pores are actually clogged pores that have collected enough dead cells. Pores release sweat & oil. When pores become congested due to unhygienic conditions, they become enlarged and form acne. Some pores are open whereas others are closed this is why you see pores with black heads and white heads. It is important to exfoliate your skin in order to get rid of dead skin cells. Exfoliation ploughs off surface debris and helps evening out the texture. Make sure your skin care & makeup products are non-comedogenic & you let your skin breathe at night.
Enlarged pores and oily skin go hand to hand. Unlike dry skin it retains moisture and appear youthful. On the other hand dry skin is often thin & brittle accompanied by fine lines & unsightly wrinkles. However in rare cases one may have dry skin yet enlarged pores. This weird combination gets worse as you age. Luckily with concrete steps and right antiaging skin care products you can diminish the appearance of large pores while providing your skin the due hydration.
Antiaging Skin Care: Dry & Dehydrated Skin with Enlarged Pores
Dry skin lacks oil whereas dehydrated skin is deficient in water. When your skin is dry and dehydrated and still have large pores it clearly indicates an imbalance of skin barrier or skin mantle. Large pores are more evident when you have had oily skin which turned dry with hormonal imbalance & ageing process.
Skin barrier is made up of lipid layer. It is responsible to retain moisture & prevent environmental damage. When the skin barrier has been compromised due to using harsh and chemical laden products etc, it allows rapid evaporation of skin moisture leaving it dry & dehydrated. Large pores which you have inherited from your genes still happen to exist that you can diminish incorporating a couple of anti-aging skin care products.
Antiaging Skin Care: Products to Diminish Large Pores
Pores may begin to appear even larger as you age. It is progressive. With age collagen production slows down and eventually ceases. Collagen keeps your skin firm & lifted as a result your pores appear tight & less visible. As the skin loses its elasticity, the skin at the base of the pores gets saggy and makes pores look dilated and bigger.
Try layering antiaging skin care products that claim collagen production. Products containing hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, glycerine etc should be used. Combining a hydrating essence, serum along with a facial oil & moisturizer make a great antiaging skin care regime.
