Pores are small openings in your skin.
Your pores bring sweat and oil to the surface of the skin. When pores become enlarged, they’re more likely to trap dirt and oil, leaving you with inflammation and acne. Enlarged pores can also be unsightly and make it harder to apply skin products and makeup.
Many people don’t realize that pores are actually hair follicles, and the size and depth depend largely on genetics.
In addition, outside factors such as aging, oil production, and dry skin can affect the appearance of your pores.
