Enlarged pores are something most people are extremely conscious about, and tend to attribute them mostly to acne and over active oil glands.
The truth though, is that there are two other major factors in determining the size of facial pores. One is gender, women tend to have larger pores—sorry,ladies!
And the second is due to the natural aging process. The good news is that we can effectively treat two of the three causes!
You can postpone the natural aging process, and you can manage your acne with organic and Ayurvedic skincare products from PuraVeda Organics. Below, we will discuss the three factors and what you can do, starting today, to shrink your pores!
Acne is hormonal in nature and exacerbated when oil and dirt become trapped in the pores and force them to expand to accommodate newly formed blackheads. Bacteria introduced into the skin causes the familiar pustules of acne, and the residual scarring can cause that pore to permanently enlarge.
A great way to prevent dirt and oil from entering the pores is to create a balancing skincare regimen that works for your skin type. You can read more HERE about which Ayurvedic skin type fits you best.
After you have an awareness of what unique steps you need to take for your skin, you can clean away accumulated dirt and environmental toxins, and moisturize your skin properly for your type to balance it and manage oil (sebum) levels.
Aging skin loses its elasticity and this causes pores to appear bigger as well. An aggressive regimen of collagen protection, as well as free-radical fighting to keep skin young acting (sooner rather than later if possible), you can keep you skin firm and healthy, in order to fight the visible signs of aging, such as (you guessed it!) enlarged pores.
