Open pores can result from the over production of oil that is currently present, in the past or as a result of ageing skin. As we age, collagen and elastin in the skin breaks down, making open pores appear more obvious. Skincare products that may help may include gentle exfoliating products to improve surface texture, normalize sebum production or ingredients to smooth the skin. Over-exfoliation is not advised as it can lead to textural problems. Repairing and strenghting the skin’s barrier is always key to a healthy skin.
