Pore Size Reduction
The term pore is used to describe the small openings in the skin in which oil and sweat reach the surface from their respective glands below. Enlarged pores usually appear on the forehead, chin and especially around the nose and a concern mainly during puberty. Pores play a vital role in skin physiology and are a natural part of the skin and without them the skin won’t be able “to breathe”.
The main factors that contribute to large pores are: genetics and age. People who have skin that is naturally thick and oily tend to have larger pores. As people get older, too, sun damage and decreased skin elasticity can cause pores to dilate. The skin thickens, causing tiny cells to collect around the edge of the pores and make them look larger. Blackheads, genetics, improper cleansing, hormonal changes, acne, skin dehydration, excessive oil production, smoking and overuse of makeup are also a big contributor to large pores.
“In Vietnam, the hot steamy weather combined with pollution can cause excessive sweating leading to larger pores. Many Vietnamese find treatments for large pores such as wrong choices of beauty care products which can also lead to larger pores”, Dr. Tran Si, dermatologist at SIAN Skincare Laser Clinic.
There are several methods available to reduce pore evidence and Dr. Tran Ngoc Si, who has a passion for making people look younger, can share many of these secrets.
