Why Do My Pores Look That Big? 

While, most commonly, pore sizes are attributable to family and genes, there are other factors that aren’t related to inheritance. For example, oil production influences the density and location of pores; in the center of your face, where more oil glands are located, there are more pores that can give off the appearance of larger pores. Aging can be another factor for larger-looking pores, since, as you age, you lose the materials that aid skin with structural support, without these materials, the skin can loosen and the pores widen. Furthermore, sun damage can also impact these structural materials in the skin. Because of the varied ways in which pores can appear larger, there are a variety of ways to address them. Because of this, it’s best to come in for a consultation at AesthetiSpa to determine a treatment or service best for you and your skin!
