12 Products That Will Make Your Pores Look Virtually Nonexistent
“Enlarged pores can be attributed to a number of factors, including genetics, high levels of oil production, thicker skin, photodamage, and aging,” says dermatologist Sejal Shah, MD. “It’s important to understand that pores don’t open or close, but treatments may help them appear smaller.” Since pores can stretch to accommodate the buildup of dirt, oil, and bacteria, Dr. Shah and dermatologist Jessica Wu, MD, both advocate for regular deep-cleansing and
exfoliation with alpha- and
beta-hydroxy acids, purifying clays, and sulfurs to prevent buildup in the first place.
