Smooth, flawless skin is one of the hallmarks of beauty, but large pores can make your skin texture rough and bumpy instead. Thankfully, there are many ways to help pores appear minuscule and near-invisible for beautiful, healthy-looking skin.
What large pores really are
Your body naturally releases sebum through your pores to keep your skin protected and hydrated. But trouble arises when your sebaceous glands, triggered by factors such as extreme dry conditions, hormonal imbalances, diet, or even the wrong products, gets knocked out of balance to produce more oil than your skin actually needs. This causes pores to expand with trapped dead skin and excess oil, appearing large and unsightly.
