No matter your age, acne is frustrating. For some, once one set of pimples and bumps go away, more crop up the next day. It can be a vicious cycle for those who haven’t found the right treatment.

Severe acne (cystic or nodular acne) is classified as painful breakouts deep in the skin. If left untreated, it can cause permanent scarring. You are most likely to have severe acne in your teens or early 20s on your face, chest, back, upper arms and shoulders.

Do you want a smooth, flawless complexion? Are large pores ruining your chances of achieving that goal?

Pores are the small openings at the top of our hair follicles that cover the entire body. Our pores release sebum, our body’s natural oil, to naturally moisturize our skin to help keep it supple. Although large pores can be frustrating, pores are necessary for maintaining healthy skin.

Usually, genetics determine larger pores. But, oily skin, sun damage and aging can be other factors that make your pores look bigger.

While you can’t change the size of your pores, you can minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. Read on to learn the proper steps to take to minimize pores.
