Have you ever noticed people with photogenic face and wondering for the real reason behind their bright face in pictures? People who have photogenic face, normally have tightened skin tone. Meaning they have small skin pores compared to others. When the pores are small or closed, skin reflects the light instead of absorbing it, this makes the face look brighter and fair. And the people who have larger pores , it will reflect less, this makes the skin tone dull.
Now let’s see the disadvantages of having larger pores on skin.
• Dust enters the pores and get mixed with the oil glands, which causes blacks heads and acne.
• It also makes the skin look pale and duller.
• It can worsen your skin as you age if not treated properly.
What are the causes to get large pores?

Dust and pollution enlarges the pores size as they tend to mix with the oil and swollens the skin.
- Sun exposure:
More exposure to sunlight during the peak hours of the day where the UV rays are very harmful. This damages the upper skin layer thereby reducing the elasticity of the skin.
As we age the skin loses it’s normal elasticity and tend to open up the pores.
