I want to start off by saying we all have pores, and they play a vital role in our skin health...so let's drop the pore shaming and start embracing them! Pores are actually the openings of hair follicles, each one contains a sebaceous gland, which produces your skin’s oils. The size of your pores depends primarily on your genes, and your skin type. Naturally, dry skin tends to "appear" poreless, while oily skin often has more-visible pores. BOTH skin types are beautiful!
Several other factors can affect pore size. Dead skin cells and trapped sebum—which, put together, form a pimple—can stretch out pores. UV rays can also weaken the collagen that supports pores and keeps them tight, so they can also make pores look bigger. Similarly, the collagen loss that comes naturally with aging can increase the appearance of pore size. This is just one of the many reasons we supplement with collagen daily.
I'm not here to tell you how to make your pores disappear like those glass skin videos on youtube, but there are things you can do to minimize the appearance of your pores.
So let's focus on the positive, and start loving our pores!
