LARGE PORES VANCOUVER: WHAT CAUSES LARGE PORES?

Many patients are looking for treatments for large pores at our clinic in Vancouver. Pores are tiny openings on the surface of your skin that house hair follicles and sebaceous glands. They help keep your skin hydrated and preserve its natural barrier by releasing oil and sweat.

Pores that have been physically stretched out due to excessive oil production or collagen loss are known as enlarged pores. Different factors may cause the pores to become enlarged. These include:

  • Your pore size is mostly determined by your genetic makeup. You have a good chance of inheriting large pores if your parents do.

  • Overproduction of oil:

    Sweat and oil cause the pore walls to swell and extend.

  • Sun Damage:

    UV radiation can cause damage to your skin's collagen and elastin, resulting in a loss of suppleness and the appearance of bigger pores.

  • Hormonal changes:

    During adolescence, pores typically increase due to hormonal changes that cause oil production.

  • Age:

    As you age, your pores will look bigger. This results from the suppleness and collagen depletion that happens naturally with aging.

  • Clogged Pores:

    Your pores may widen and become more noticeable as debris, oil, and dead skin cells build up within them.

LARGE PORES ON THE NOSE

The pores on the nose are bigger by nature than the pores on other areas of skin. This is
a result of the enlarged sebaceous glands beneath them. Excessive oil production
contributes to the enlarged pores.

LARGE PORES ON CHEEKS

Excess oil production is frequently seen in the cheeks, which can result in enlarged pores. Increased oiliness can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormone fluctuations, hot weather, and specific skincare products.

ROUGH SKIN TEXTURE AND LARGE PORES

Dead skin cells can cause your skin to feel rough and exacerbate the appearance of large pores when they build up on the surface of your skin. Dehydration can further cause the skin to become rough and dry, which makes pores stand out more.

SKINCARE FOR LARGE PORES

It is essential to establish a regular skincare regimen that emphasizes cleansing, exfoliation, and maintaining the general health of your skin to effectively control large pores.

  • Use a gentle cleanser appropriate for your skin type.
  • Regular exfoliation opens up congested pores, promotes skin cell turnover, and gets rid of dead skin cells. Our team always recommendsa gentle chemical exfoliant containing salicylic acid or AHAs (such as lactic or glycolic acids) for optimal outcomes.
  • Use a toner to remove any remaining residue and help restore the pH balance of your skin after cleansing and exfoliating.
  • Hydration is necessary for all skin types, especially combination and oily skin. We have medical-grade, lightweight, oil-free, and non-comedogenic moisturizers.
  • We also recommend mineral-basedbroad-spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of 30 or higher to be worn every day, regardless of weather.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Large facial pores can be attributed to a variety of factors including genetics, increased sebum (oil) production, clogged pores due to dead skin cells, hormonal fluctuations, and aging. Each of these factors contributes differently to the appearance of enlarged pores.

To minimize large pores at home, a consistent skincare routine is key. This should include thorough cleansing to remove excess oil and impurities, regular exfoliation to clear dead skin cells, toning to balance skin pH, and moisturizing to maintain skin hydration. Products containing ingredients like salicylic acid or retinoids can be particularly effective.

An abrupt increase in pore size is often caused by factors that exacerbate oil production or skin irritation. These include inadequate skincare practices, heightened stress levels, hormonal imbalances, and an accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface.

Yes, there is a direct correlation. Oily skin types are prone to larger pores due to increased sebum production, which can stretch out the pores' appearance.

For individuals with large pores, non-comedogenic matte foundations are ideal. These products are formulated to not block pores (non-comedogenic) and have a matte finish that helps absorb excess oil, giving a smoother appearance to the skin.
