Skin Pores

Every hair follicle on the human body emerges from a pore. Wherever there is a hair, there is a pore. Pores are also connected with sebaceous glands. This sebum protects us from microbial infections and keeps the skin moisturized. Sweat also comes out of the pores and keeps the body temperature constant. A pore is very essential to health. But when pore looks enlarged, it becomes a cosmetic concern, especially if that happens to be the face. Why do some people have large pores and others don't?

Genetics surely plays a role. You can do nothing about it. Skin type plays an important role. Oily skin pores look bigger while dry skin pores are tighter looking. Sometimes, the pore is not large but may look large because of dead cell and sebum accumulation around it. Removing whiteheads and blackheads forcefully may increase the size of the pores. What can one do about pores that look enlarged?
