Large pores are a common skin concern affecting both men and women. They may be present from an early age or develop later in life. Major causes of large pores are increased sebum production and skin ageing. Sebum production is genetically determined. Aging of the skin is associated with decreased elasticity of the skin which in turn makes pores more prominent. Skin care products containing retinol , salicylic acid and glycolic acids can help to reduce the appearance of large pores.
