Condition -  Enlarged Pores

Visible pores on your skin are seen more regularly on the face. They are the departure points for internal glands that produce oil. These differ depending on your sex, genetics, and age. They also fluctuate in contraceptive use or estrogen levels.


The main cause of enlarged pores is having oily skin. The pores on our face become enlarged when clogged with excess oil, and continue getting larger with age. The magnitude of the sebaceous glands increases, and this causes a higher percentage of oil. Along with this, dead cells and sweat, creates a cover in order to prevent certain infections that come from bacteria and viruses.

Skin tends to look shiny and greasy.  Skin types that suffer from this dermatological problem have a tendency to have acne.

The pore size depends on the affected area and the concentration of skin oils. Most people tend to get enlarged pores on their noses and the areas in the middle of their face.
