Do Your Pores Get Bigger as You Age?

Your pore size is basically determined by genetics, sun exposure, your age and anything that can impact your sebaceous-oil gland.

The firmer your skin is, the less visible your pores will be. Unfortunately, time doesn’t treat our pores well, and the loss of firmness that occurs over the years can cause the appearance of large pores. While they won’t technically widen, your pores do tend to look bigger as you age. This is largely due to the loss of collagen, which is responsible for keeping your skin tight. As you age, your body’s storage of collagen and elastin fibers start breaking down.

Gravity also plays a role, pulling the skin in a downward motion. As this continues, your pores begin to stretch, distending and taking on more of an oval shape.

Do You Have Large Pores on Your Face? Does It Bother Your Appearance?

Plus, we need to be aware of the impact of "sebaceous lines" on our appearance even more than age-related collagen loss.

Excess build up of skin cells and oil can also expand the follicle and cause enlarged pores. It starts when your oil glands make too much oil. This oil then combines with dead skin, dirt, make up and together they clog the pore. This blockage does not allow the free flow of the oil which makes the pores expand, causing enlarged pores. Enlarged pores are very common around the nose area, which typically has more oil glands. These blockages, once exposed to the air, oxidise, forming blackheads.

So how do we reduce our open pores and blackheads? It is really all about having an effective and consistent skin care routine.

How to Remove Enlarged Pores and Blackheads

The first and foundational step in any skincare routine is to remove makeup and impurities. One of the biggest reasons why enlarged pores occur is that people go to bed with their full make-up on. Make-up is one of the main reasons why clogged pores happen in the first place.

Use a gentle cleanser that does not dry your skin, such as Clear Gel Cleanse. If your cleanser is stripping away your natural sebum extensively, this will lead to more production of oil and you can enter a vicious cycle of over production of oil.

A very simple regimen, but it is important to “continue” your cleansing process on a daily basis.

Careful Attention to Dryness After 50

After the age of 50, skin is lacking resilience and its youthful appearance due to a sharp decline of estrogen. Then, the skin becomes dry and more easily irritated. This condition is especially prone to the vicious cycle of sebum overproduction, so it requires a gentle, high-quality makeup remover to cleanse the skin.

Our Clear Gel Cleanse is developed as a makeup remover to be used daily without stressing the skin and actually make you realize the effect on pores.


1. Focus on Water

Clear Gel Cleanse is a makeup remover that focuses on water, the essence of life. The base water is produced by a patented process that makes it possible to reduce surfactants to the minimum. Surfactants are the key to removing oil and makeup that usually cannot be cleansed with just water. However, surfactants can also strip away the essential moisture from the skin. Our patented water is designed to reduce this surfactants to the minimum while enhancing the cleaning power. (Japanese Patent Application No. 2001-156837)

Focusing on Water Is A Key to Beautiful Skin

Our patented water has a high affinity with the skin and helps to lift makeup, making it easier to remove impurities while preventing irritation. Also, it has the effect of enhancing skin penetration of active ingredients and boosting skincare effects.

Amazing results after only 3 days!

I bought this for some very stubborn blackheads that even my aesthetician couldn't remove. I never really expected it to work. I've used it for 3 days and tonight I noticed that the ones I was having trouble with were kind of sitting on the surface. I gently rubbed the area and they were gone! I'm pretty amazed and very happy. It is very gentle, my skin feels hydrated and super clean. Also, a little goes a long way but when I'm out I am definitely coming back for more. This stuff works!

Clear gel brings measurable results.

After using the Clear Gel for 2 weeks I have started to see improvement in the areas of my face that had large pores. My chin is starting to look a little smoother and nose as well. I like the feel of the clear gel on my face. I’m amazed how easy my makeup seems to melt off with the gel.

5. Change the Future of Your Pores

Our starting point was an aesthetic salon that we opened in 2002. We have dealt with the problems of more than 20,000 women, and one of the problems that many women consulted us about during treatment was pores. Pores can be treated at aesthetic clinics, but if they are treated every day, it can cost a lot of money. If treated only once a month, the condition will get better temporarily, but it will eventually return to its original state. So we arrived at the answer: "In order to achieve truly healthy skin, basic skincare products must be fully functional."

First and most importantly, daily skincare is the key to treat pores. Especially, daily makeup removal, a step which removes makeup and impurities accumulated in pores, is important. Our Clear Gel Cleanse is a makeup remover chosen by many customers for its gentleness to the skin and effectiveness on pores.
