Pores are tiny little openings on the surface of the skin that allow for release of excess oils or sweat. Large pores are usually a sign of increased sebum and oily skin which run a risk of holding more dirt and dead skin often causing breakouts. While you can’t get rid of pores or shrink them, you can unclog and make them appear visibly smaller with the right skincare.
Contrary to popular belief, pores are actually quite necessary in skin elasticity helping it look youthful and supple. Maintaining pore health is crucial for a flawless face and comes with simple cleansing and pore filling beauty ingredients to give you a bouncy and beautiful complexion.
