Large pores: tips and remedies to avoid them

The pores are responsible for the skin to perspire and for the sebum produced by the sebaceous glands to reach the epidermis. This is a good thing, since the most superficial part of the skin is hydrated and stays elastic.

However, problems start when there is an excess of sebum. Especially if you add the accumulation of dead cells and the dirt of environmental pollution.

Then, these holes can become clogged and dilate. This happens because the sebum can not leave, causing the pores to "stretch" more than necessary. The consequence is irritated and uneven skin, which is prone to eruptions and, in the long term, episodes of acne.

That is why it is important to avoid enlarged pores, and here we tell you the best ways to achieve it.
