Teardrop-shaped, enlarged pores are commonly referred to as "sagging pores." So, what causes this? The sagging is caused by maturing skin and UV damage. This causes the skin’s foundation to sag and the surface skin loses firmness. In addition, gravity pulls on the skin, causing the pores to widen and take an oval, "teardrop" shape. To effectively diminish the appearance of these sagging pores, it is crucial to use daily, targeted care on sagging skin, including your pores.
Support the skin’s foundation by helping prevent further damage to the Dermis, the inner layer of skin, by reducing exposure to and protecting it from harmful UV rays. Protection, combined with daily moisturizing, will boost circulation and nourish the skin. Regular facial massage is also essential for circulation, blood flow and may help to lift and tighten the skin. It is important to massage all facial areas including neck, throat and even behind the ears.
