Cause of Enlarged Pores

Everyone has them, they cover our bodies and some are bigger than others. They keep the largest organ of our body healthy, lubricated and cool. They are our pores. Love or hate them, we all need them.
In this article we will cover:

  • What are pores?
  • What leads to enlarged pores?
  • How do I treat enlarged pores?

What are pores?

Pores, also known as sweat glands, are the small openings on our skin that allow our bodies to secrete fluids. These fluids, whether they are sweat or oil, help to keep us cool during hot days and they keep our skin hydrated and protected from the elements.

Pores cover our entire body and differ in size. Typically the smaller pores are located in areas that are less exposed to the elements. Unfortunately, that means the larger pores are located in areas we see every day all day.

What leads to enlarged pores?

Some factors that lead to enlarged pores are age & loss of elasticity, the sun, and genetics. As we get older, our bodies slow the production of Elastin. As the production of elastin slows, our skin begins to stretch and sag. While doing so, pores begin to look larger.

The sun also plays a role in enlarged pores. Over exposure to the suns’ ultraviolet rays cause damage to the elastin in our skin. Much like aging, this will cause skin to droop and make pores appear larger.

Finally we come to genetics. The color, type, and even the size of the pores on our skin is the result of our genetics. Unfortunately, that means genetically large pores are mostly unavoidable. Those born with oily or combination skin will naturally have larger pores than those born with dry skin.

How do I treat enlarged pores?

Pore Power Duo

Reducing the size of large pores means beating back the causes as best you can. While you can’t turn back time, you can treat your skin to maintain elastin and reduce dirt and oil which lead to clogged and ultimately larger pores.

While pore refining treatments will help reduce the size of pores, Dr. Perricone recommends treating your skin with his specially formulated Pore Power Duo. Consisting of his Intensive Pore Treatment and his Intensive pore minimizer, the Pore Power Duo will maintain the elastin in your skin and absorb oil. In addition, it will also exfoliate wax and dirt allowing your pores to reduce in size and become less noticeable.

Perricone MD Intensive Pore Treatment

Intensive Pore Treatment form Dr. Perricone
Dr. Perricone’s newest skin care solution is a state-of-the-art blend of ingredients proven to effectively treat and reduce enlarged pores at the source and deliver more taut, younger looking skin.

Intensive Pore Treatment is built around Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), a universal antioxidant known for its ability to diminish lines, wrinkles, puffiness and the size of enlarged pores, and Dimethylaminoethanol, better known as DMAE.

A stabilizing antioxidant, DMAE enhances the benefits of ALA treatment by firming the skin and keeping reduced pore membranes taut.

How is Intensive Pore Treatment different?

  • It is unique to other pore treatments that are primarily designed to “fill” and superficially mask enlarged pores.
  • Blended with Glycolic Acid, Intensive Pore Treatment instead gently exfoliates the skin and purifies pores of residue and build up.
  • In addition to reducing and firming pores, Intensive Pore Treatment helps control excess oil production in the skin through synergistic doses of Zinc & Salicylic Acid.
  • Pore walls are strengthened and firmed for long lasting, radiant results.
  • Intensive Pore Treatment is non-clogging; both oil and silicone free.
