Skin pores are nipped in the bud

- +

Enlarged pores are a common beauty concern among women young and mature, but according to Sisley's Asia Pacific Managing Director Nicolas Chesnier, no matter what your age, you can tighten dilated pores. 

"Conventionally, people with dilated pores would use cosmetics to conceal them. Sisley didn't want to develop a product to hide pores and we wanted to seriously deal with this annoying problem," said Chesnier, who was recently in Bangkok to introduce Global Perfect Pore Minimizer.

A common cause for oversized pores among young people is hyperseborrhea _ an excess production of sebum that also increases the risk of acne. With ageing, the problem can be due to parakeratosis _ a condition with nucleated cells accumulating around the pores and causing their walls to become rigid, thus preventing them from closing.
