Genetics, age and general skin health all play a role in how susceptible you may be to enlarged pores. Our skin’s pores are technically always open. This makes the condition a cosmetic issue for many because of the visibility of the pores themselves. People with oily skin are generally even more susceptible to enlarged pores as they may appear worse when oil gets trapped in the pores.
As we get older, our skin loses collagen and elastin which makes the skin itself looser. Over the years we’re also exposed to sun damage, especially here in Queensland, which can further reduce our body’s ability to produce collagen.
At Body Dezign House, we create a journey treatment plans to address the issue of enlarged pores from multiple angles for various skin types and patient requirements.
