Ever wake up one day with small visible holes in your face? Relax, you’re not dying, your pores are just enlarged. At first glance, it can be an unsettling feeling because our pores are so small that they cannot be seen with bare eyes unless they’re enlarged. What exactly causes pores to be enlarged? Let’s sort through this….
WHAT CAUSES PORE ENLARGEMENT?
Many things can cause your pores to be enlarged but the main ones are, aging and excess oil production. As we mature, our skin starts to show the signs of sun damage and loss of elasticity through enlarged pores. Prevention is possible with sunscreen and fresh foods that help produce collagen-like, spinach, kale, and berries.
An excess of oil, whether its natural or you’re choosing to drown your face in oil, will, in fact, give your skin a noticeable open pore pattern. This is because unlike serums, oils sit on the surface of the skin. It does not penetrate the pores like many people assume.
HOW CAN I SHRINK MY PORES?
Using a clay mask is the PERFECT solution to your skin woes when it comes to enlarged pores. The clay will pull all of the icky buildup from your pores and dry them out a bit, causing them to close. Not to worry! A clay mask is nourishing as well. Your skin will not be dry and brittle afterward, scouts honor!
