For every hair on your body, there is a corresponding skin pore. Although we can't see all of these pores, we can see some of them.

Maintaining clean, healthy skin pores is important for maintaining healthy and beautiful skin. Dirt and oil on your face collect around your pores like leaves and debris collect around a storm drain. When those pores get clogged, it creates a pile-up of oil and dead skin cells in the follicle. Soon, bacteria make their way to the blockage, and the growth in bacteria causes inflammation.

For this story's purpose we will discuss 2 types of pores large and small:

If one has large pores, there's some good news -- but you may have to wait a few years to receive its benefits. As we age, our skin produces less oil, leading to dryness. This dryness, coupled with environmental damage to the skin, causes skin to age and wrinkle. Large pores produce more oil, and this comes in handy later in life when your skin needs it most. 

If you have small pores they are less visible and have the ability to create a more even and smooth surface.

In order to maintain pore fitness remember these few rules. 
  • If you use makeup, remember to wash it off each night with a gentle cleanser to prevent pore blockage.
    • After washing your face, rinse in cold water (fair-skinned people should use cool instead of cold) to close the pores and tighten the facial muscles.
  • Protect yourself from the sun. Sun and aging thicken the outer layer of skin, and as the tide of skin cells rises, they form a tiny volcano rim around pores. This makes pores seem bigger than they really are.
  • Oily-looking skin tends to make pores look larger. Washing your face regularly to cut down on oiliness will improve their appearance. Solutions or medications containing salicylic acid can dry out the skin and help you maintain clear pores.
