What causes facial pores to open up like mini craters? Oily skins have a greater tendency for dilated pores and their appearance can be made worse when oil gets trapped, oxidizes and turns dark, classified as a blackhead. But age plays a significant role, too. In younger skin, pores are tighter, which means that light reflects more easily, giving a glow.
Over time, the skin loses the collagen and elastin that support the pores and their natural structure becomes looser. They sag, which makes them appear bigger. So is there a solution? Enlarged pores can’t be shrunk permanently, but there’s an array of products and treatments that can help the skin to appear clearer.
