One very unpleasant fact of life is that our pores tend to appear larger as we age, particularly around the nose. Often, these pores are much more noticeable if you have oily skin. However, even women with dry complexions can suffer from large pores within the dreaded T-zone. More than anything else, most enlarged pores on the face are the result of hereditary factors.
Aging skin that is not well-exfoliated and nourished tends to lose its glow, firmness, and tone. This skin is not breathing well and circulation is stagnant. This is typically when skin begins to sag. A corrective skin care regimen will stimulate exfoliation, new cell metabolism, and increase circulation. Skin that is gently exfoliated and well-nourished is healthy, glowing, and more firm. And as the skin increases in firmness, the pores function better, have better tone, and appear visibly smaller.
