Have small holes all over face. Used to never was makeup at night. Remedy?

ok so I never used to wash the makeup off my face at night so I realized that Im getting old,Im 37.and that I need to start taking care of my skin better,well I started washing and cleansing my face everynight with just plain water and every other night or sometimes every third night with clearasil face wash,well now I noticed that I have little small holes all over my face,just appearing from nowhere,I assume these are pores but if it is then why have they all of sudden gotten so noticable.I should just go back to going to bed with makeup all over my face if this is what happens when you TRY and take care of your skin,lol

Hello..Thanks for your query

As for regular care of skin ,you should use a sensitive mild cleanser.

Try to use a Retinoid topically at night.

Orally you should have supplements containing Vit C and Vit E to reduce the free radical induced damage to body and prevent aging changes.Y

ou also should apply non comedogenic moisturizers containing Vit A and E in the morning.It is very important to avoid sun exposure and apply a broad spectrum sunscreen when you go out.

For the open pores, they may develop due to loss of collagen in the aging process.You can consult a dermatologist for lasers for photorejuvination of skin.

Hope this helps.Take care.
