Open pores are very critical for healthy skin. They get clogged quickly, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads, and acne. That’s why several skincare products are targeted at reducing their size. Let’s discuss if you can reduce pore size.
Several of the features of our skin are determined by our genetics. By utilizing the right skincare products, we can only enhance their aspects and improve overall appearance, but we can’t change them. Our Open pores sizes are also one of them. Their location and dimensions are determined by our genetics, and unfortunately, we can’t alter them. But we can still use several ingredients to reduce their appearance. However, these products are not a permanent solution. You will have to use them regularly to get the desired results.
Despite genetics, certain external factors make these pores more visible. Particularly, when skin is dry, it has to produce more sebum which makes pores more visible. However, whether they are increased in size due to genetics or external factors, several of the ingredients, such as retinol, vitamin B3, niacinamide, etc., can help reduce their appearance. On the other hand, regular skin cleansing, adequate hydration, and proper sun protection lessen the expansion of pores, reducing their appearance.
