4 Methods To Minimise The Appearance Of Large Pores













3 reasons why you may have larger pores:

1. Genetics

The size of your pores may be genetic. Hence, if your parents have large pores, you are most likely to have large pores as well.


2. Not Protecting Your Skin From UV Exposure

When you do not apply sunscreen regularly, you are exposing your skin to the Sun’s Ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV breaks down collagen and elastin, which are the building blocks of your skin. This causes your skin to lose its firmness and sag, resulting in the appearance of larger pores.


3. Hormones, Oily Skin and Clogged Pores

During and sometimes after puberty, hormones may cause sebaceous glands to produce more oil. An overproduction of oil can result in clogged pores and acne, which makes pores appear larger.

2. Apply Sunscreen Regularly
