Large pores generally result from genetic as well as the environmental factors. People with oily skin tend to have blackheads which give way to large pores. This not only affects the appearance but can also lead to further problems if infected with dirt and germs. Then are other issues like aging and stress that too can result in pores. Although the market is flooded with cosmetics that claim to be effective in reducing pores, many of them hardly seem to be effective. Therefore, it helps to have a good knowledge about the skin care products as well as the regimes.
It is a must to exfoliate your skin twice a week. For this, you can either use a commercial scrub or a home-made one. Exfoliating rids your face off all the accumulated dirt and dead cells. You can also replace your normal body wash with an exfoliating one to cleanse your entire body. Jojoba scrubs are best for oily skin and walnut and apricot for normal to dry skin. This will keep your pores from getting clogged. However, do not scrub your skin too roughly or it can cause rashes and irritation.
