What is it?

Pores can get filled with impurities, dirt and sebum. The larger the pores, the more visible and shiny they can become.

Origins & main causes

Having oily skin and trouble regulating your sebum and oil levels can make the appearance of enlarged pores worse. However this concern is also related to your environment! Heat and humidity can open your pores and make them welcome impurities with open arms. Since particles from the air can fill you pores, a poor air quality and high pollution levels also don’t help…

What to do

If your pores are visible, the main skincare tip for you is to cleanse and purify. Charcoal, clay and the magical AHA/BHA are very popular ingredients when it comes to reducing the appearance of pores.
