Enlarged or clogged pores on your face can be caused by too much oil production. This is common in oily and combination skin types but can occur with any skin type due to lack of exfoliation. Excess oil combines with dead skin cells and dirt, which can lead to the appearance of larger pores.
Can you get rid of pores?
No/not really – There’s nothing you can do to actually get rid of pores on your skin. You can reduce excess oil and shrink the appearance of pores, however, with pore minimisers and oil-reducing formulas like cleansers,treatment lotions,serums and moisturisers.
