Every inch of our skin contains an abundance of tiny pores – openings in the skin that allow for sweat and oil to be secreted onto the surface. The pores are not usually noticeable unless they become enlarged, which may be described as looking like small pin-pricks on the skin. Many people will find that their face – in particular, the nose and cheeks – will commonly experience enlarged pores which can give the complexion an uneven appearance.
Blackheads are commonly experienced when a person is affected by enlarged pores as it’s easier for dirt and debris to become lodged inside them. A blackhead is a darkened lump of dirt that is visible in the pores.
Enlarged pores can develop for a number of reasons, including: genetics, ageing, overproduction of sebum, low skin elasticity, hormonal changes and sun damage, as these factors can cause the pores to become stretched and grow in size. Acne can also contribute to the development of enlarged pores, with cystic acne being likely to stretch the pores.
A blackhead forms when a combination of excess oil, surface dirt and debris accumulates in the opening of the follicle, or pore. This produces a small lump called a comedo, and it is exposure to the air that turns this bump darker in colour.
