Enlarged pores

Enlarged pores on the face are a skin condition in which the mouths of the sweat gland ducts on the surface of the skin increase in size and become more visible. Their enlargement occurs as a result of clogging by excess sebum, makeup, dirt, or other impurities, which provokes the appearance of large, enlarged pores. This becomes an unpleasant cosmetic problem as the skin becomes uneven and acquires an unhealthy appearance.

Improve the appearance of your face with enlarged pores treatment in Chicago, where experienced professionals will tease out a range of affordable and effective treatments.

Common causes of enlarged pores

There is an extensive range of internal and external factors that provoke the development of pathological processes in the excretory ducts of sweat glands. Among the most common causes, can be note:

  • hormonal instability and stress;
  • genetic factor;
  • age-related changes;
  • pollution and poor quality makeup;
  • improper facial cleansing;

To treat enlarged ducts at the medical center, there are several recommended treatments to help reduce their size.

How to reduce pores on the face at home

The recommendations of the specialists at Bella Sana Med Spa Medical Center are based on the obligatory observance of certain rules.

  1. Regularly cleanse your face: use mild cleansers that will help remove excess sebum and impurities, preventing them from accumulating in the pores.
  2. Use products with retinol: hygiene products containing retinol help reduce the size of clogged ducts and improve skin texture. Retinol promotes cell renewal and stimulates collagen production.
  3. Avoid over-moisturizing: over-moisturizing the skin contributes to clogged duct mouths and increased duct size. Use light moisturizers and avoid overly oily products.
  4. Use sunscreen: ultraviolet radiation can damage the structure of the skin and increase the visibility of skin imperfections. Regularly apply sunscreen with a high level of protection.

Even at home, you can take steps to improve the appearance of your face. Bring back the former freshness and youthfulness.
