Enlarged Pores

Enlarged pores are often influenced by genetics but can be the result of oily or unclean skin; which causes oil to sit around the pores, making them appear larger due to the skin thickening around them.

The ageing process and sun damage can also increase the size of the pores as cells build around the pore openings. The production of collagen and elastin reduces in our skin as we age, which also increases the appearance of visible pores.

Pores play a vital role in skin function, they are responsible for bringing sweat and oil to the surface. Whilst they cannot be eliminated altogether, the appearance of pores can be minimized through skincare regimes and treatment options, which will help improve glow, texture and skin quality.

As we age we begin to lose elasticity in our skin and collagen begins to dissipate and we experience a natural ‘drooping’ of our skin. This sagging can also transcend to the ear lobes, which is considered to be one of the telltale signs of ageing.

Sun exposure and genetics can influence the appearance of the earlobes, which is amplified by the continued wear of heavy earings.
