Those with oily skin can suffer, but is mainly those with dryer skin that are more prone to the problem.

Dry skin along with blocked pores tend to be linked, as pores get blocked with dirt and everyday pollutants, they lose their elasticity and remain open.

How To Deal With Open Pores

It is important to pay strict attention to your skin care regime, be confident about the products that you currently use, if in doubt about any of them, stop using them, as some can actually increase the blockages, reducing the skins ability to breathe and making the problem worse.

People with oily skin often have over active sebaceous glands that make sebum – the skins natural oil. In larger quantities this can set quite hard in the pores, blocking the pores, stopping them closing and allowing dead skin cells and dirt to collect, which can make the pores wider and more inflamed.
