We all have pores on our skin. Pores produce sebum that keeps our skin moisturized, shed dead skin cells and also protect our skin.
Problems start in our skin, when this sebum reacts with dirt and dead skin cells. When you use harsh chemicals on your face, they might irritate your skin and your skin will produce more sebum to repair damage caused by these products, it might lead to enlarged skin pores and your skin will appear oily.
If you keep your skin always clean and do not use many chemicals on your face, your skin can always heal itself and it will always glow.
