Enlarged Pores Treatments in Singapore
Pores are small openings that release sebum and sweat to reach the surface from glands below the skin. With Singapore’s humid weather, sebum and sweat are easily accumulated in pores, and when combined with external dirt, it leads to blocked, enlarged pores.
Pore sizes are genetically determined. However, there are aesthetic treatments in Singapore to minimize appearance of enlarged pores, making it less visible for a smoother and younger skin complexion.
What causes Enlarged Pores?
Enlarged pores are very common and can appear large due to a variety of reasons.

Acne / Clogged pores
Acne, whiteheads or blackheads are results of clogged pores, which can also lead to larger and more noticeable pores.
Overproduction of sebum
Sebum is secreted by the sebaceous glands to protect and prevent loss of moisture in skin. Overproduction of sebum resulting in blocked pores which will lead to enlarged pores.
Hormones play a role in stimulating glands to produce sebum, leading to an increase in sebum production which is why enlarged pores occur during ovulation or when stressed for most females.
