The Secret to Smaller Pores

Do's and don'ts to have small pores

Large pores can be a problem in skin of all ages. Makeup often makes their appearance even more prominent, however the proper dermatologist recommended skin care products can reduce their visibility for both the short- and long-term. But before delving into the best ways to improve the look of your pores, it’s helpful to understand exactly what they are - and why they may be the first thing you see when you look in the mirror.

Pores are small openings in the skin that release sweat and oil. They are also connected to hair follicles, so the pores also serve as the exit point for individual hairs. Pores can appear enlarged for several reasons. According to Dr. Steven Swengel, Board Certified Dermatologist from Los Gatos, California,, “Those with oily skin tend to have more visible pores due to increased sebum production. Excess oil may be accompanied by acne, and the inflammation associated with breakouts can make pores look larger as well.”

The Age-Reversing Defensins Story

With so many skincare ingredients available, it can be difficult to keep them straight. From peptides to stem cells and growth factors, many products with these ingredients claim to be the fountain of youth, which is why we turned to DefenAge clinical researcher Dr. Amy Forman Taub, Medical Director of Advanced Dermatology and Skinfo Specialty Skincare Boutique, to explain these pieces of the skincare puzzle - and the benefits they have for restoring the skin to a more youthful state.

I’ve seen countless skincare innovations over the course of my more than 30-year career, and thanks to modern science and copious amounts of research we have access to more skin-rejuvenating options than ever. But with that said, skincare and skin rejuvenation is still a science, and much of what researchers and scientists know can be difficult to translate to consumers. As with just about anything else, knowledge is power, and understanding your anti-aging skincare choices is key to getting the optimal improvement for your unique skin concerns and needs.
