Perfect your pores: They’re not just a teenage problem
Open pores, oily skin and spots are usually problems associated with teenagers – yet even women in their 50s frequently complain about an uneven complexion.
This is because as we age, we lose collagen – the building block of skin – which means more wrinkles and bigger, more visible pores. As a result, blemishes and blackheads can become a problem again.
Dr Anjali Mahto, a consultant dermatologist at Cadogan Cosmetics, explains: ‘Pores are the openings in our skin that release oil to moisturise and protect it. If they become enlarged or open, skin can appear irregular and dull.’
