We all have pores in our skin that allow the release of oil from the sebaceous glands. This helps keep our skin hydrated and moisturized. For most, pores are barely visible. But for some, their pores are dilated (or enlarged). This can make caring for your skin more difficult and require extra time and money. For some, the appearance of dilated pores can hurt their confidence and self-esteem.
Often dilated pores are most noticeable on the nose, chin, and forehead. As oil gets trapped, our nose pores can swell and appear wider than they actually are. This issue can be exacerbated if dry skin is also present. Blackheads frequently accompany dilated pores too.
