If you feel too embarrassed to get up close and personal with people because of your large pores, this segment is for you.
What Pores Actually Do
As unsightly as gaping pores may be, pores are necessary.
Pores are a natural function of the skin. When we get overheated, it’s a way for the body to perspire so we can balance out body temperature.
