Pores are the openings for the hair roots in the subcutaneous tissue. Sebum flows through the small channels, making the upper layer of skin and hair supple. The sebum also has an important protective function: it prevents the penetration of pathogens, bacteria and environmental pollution. So pores are important and very useful. And because everyone has fine hairs almost all over their bodies - except on the mucous membranes, the soles of the feet and the palms of the hands - you also have pores everywhere. The reason the small openings are more visible on some than others is because of their size. How do large pores arise? When you look around your friends, do you get the impression that some have more pores and others less? That is absolutely right! The skin type in particular determines the pore size. Oily and combination skin types tend to have large pores. The reason: With oily skin, the pores produce excessive amounts of sebum. If there is also a cornification disorder, the skin does not shed dead flakes quickly enough, the pores literally seal, and the sebum cannot drain off. At first this creates blackheads. These blackheads stretch the pores. If the impurities are not treated, the pores can no longer contract by themselves. You already have small mini craters - and with bad luck, they will stay for a lifetime. Good to know: Sun, stress, smoking, alcohol and hormonal changes such as during pregnancy and menopause can additionally accelerate sebum production and promote cornification. So if you are stressed, please refrain from butts and drinks and rather meditate for a while. And never outside the door without sun protection! Too much sebum or a cornification disorder are not the only reasons for enlarged pores. The natural aging of the skin also contributes to visibility: the pores are emphasized by sagging skin. Demodex mites can also be responsible for large pores. How can large pores be made smaller? The bad news for all those afflicted with XXL pores: once overstretched, the pores do not retract by themselves into their original XS format. But with the right care and good make-up, they quickly look smaller. If you want to restore the pores to their original state, you have to see a dermatologist. Please read on! Which products help against large pores? There are many remedies and tinctures for large pores, but not all of them keep their promises. Most cosmetic products against large pores can only prevent a further enlargement of the pores or hide the existing pores. The effect is only minimal and short-term. How do I keep pores smaller? he most important thing is a thorough cleaning. It is best to include a peeling in the routine. But for the sake of the environment and your health, the peeling should contain natural granules and no microplastics. Clarifying face masks, for example with clay, are also essential to prevent large pores. With all of your care products, you should make sure that they are "non-comedogenic", that is, they don't clog the pores rewarded with more even skin. What's up with the doctor? Creams and make-up for large pores either only work until the next time you wash your face - or only after a very long period of use. Medical treatments, however, are particularly effective in the fight against large pores. Here the expert reveals the 5 best applications against large pores: 1. Fruit acid peeling: keratinization is loosened and the pores are intensively cleaned by the fruit acid - ideally suited for skin-type-related large pores! 2. Microneedling: Particularly suitable for scarred pores, such as acne. The skin is injured with small needle pricks in order to stimulate collagen production and skin renewal. Sure, microneedling is not for the faint of heart - but the result is impressive! 3. Fractional laser therapy: The top layer of skin is removed by the laser. Of course, this is not entirely without pain. But it is still worth considering: The pores are guaranteed to shrink! 4. Jetpeel: This treatment is completely painless. A water-gas mixture is blown onto the skin through a tube, which detaches dead skin cells and cleanses the pores. Gentler than fruit acid and also suitable for rosacea sufferers and acne patients. 5. Photobionic therapy: The irradiation with blue light initiates the natural repair process of the skin. Not only can pores recede, but also small wrinkles - perfect! Pores are all natural and useful.
