Causes Symptoms Treatments





Open or blocked pores are a common concern for many men and women of all ages and skin types, especially for those who suffer from oily and combination skin. This condition can be triggered by genetic disposition or skin quality. Oily skin can usually be more susceptible to enlarged pores and their appearance can be made worse when oil gets trapped.

Unfortunately, age also plays a significant role in the appearance of pores. Over time, the skin loses its collagen and elastin that support the pores and their natural structure becomes looser. Sun damage may also cause enlarged pores, since sun exposure can also reduce the production of collagen.

How to treat open or enlarged pores?

There are a number of ways to help minimise the appearance of enlarged, open pores and smooth out your complexion.*

Frequently asked questions

What should you avoid?

Enlarged pores mainly appear around the nose area due to the increased production of oil. It is important to avoid using skincare products that clog pores or cause your oil glands to produce more oil. Irritating products can stimulate more oil production directly in the pore. Finally, ensuring a consistent skincare routine is essential in minimising pore size.

Who is affected?

Men and women can both suffer from large pores but individual suffering from oily skin are more susceptible. Large pores predominantly appear on the face, particularly around the nose and on the cheeks. However, the appearance of enlarged pores can also be noticed on body areas such as legs, arms and backs which sometimes can be a result of hair removal.
