Enlarged Pores

ENLARGED PORES

Does your face suffer from enlarged pores? Enlarged pores are created by an accumulation of sebum, which accentuates the pore. Moreover, sun damage also affects the pore structure. Always choose Paula's Choice products that reduce enlarged pores. If you clean a pore from the inside and your skin condition improves, the pore structure will also become smoother. Discover more

THE CAUSE OF ENLARGEDPORES

When talking about stubborn and difficult-to-treat skin problems, besides blackheads, large pores are probably the most annoying. More often than not, many skincare products only provide temporary treatment. As a result, your skin problems will only get worse in the long term. Enlarged pores often occur when your sebaceous glands produce too much sebum, which then mixes with dead skin cells in your pores. The pores become blocked and the sebum cannot sit freely atop your skin. The result? The pores become wider and more visible. Not to mention, blackheads may develop.

DAILY SKINCARE FOR ENLARGEDPORES

STEP 1: Facial cleanser against enlarged pores

Keep your skin and pores clean by using a mild daily cleanser. In doing so, your enlarged pores won't become as easily visible. After all, dirt and sebum won't be able to accumulate in your pores.

STEP 2: Exfoliate against enlarged pores

When sebum, dirt and dead skin cells accumulate in your pores, they become more noticeable. A BHA exfoliant can penetrate deeply into the pores and clean from within. This will make your pores less visible.

STEP 3: Creams against enlarged pores

Sun damage may distort and dilate pores. Sebum and dirt will then accumulate in your pores faster, making them more visible. It's important that you protect your skin as well as possible against the harmful effects of the sun.
