I notice this with a lot of female pornstars. Do you know what the reason for this is?

They are not exactly healthy, in general and that reflects in their skin.

Yeah, it's probably all that clean living.

Drugs, most likely. It is what it is.

Plus, a lot of them are not really very good looking. That's a lot of make-up piled on.

I would guess that they don't have such bad skin - and that the reasons you perceive them as having such are as follows:

1) The comparison is to other women you see on-screen. However, in virtually all these cases such women either make considerably more money (and are thus able to spend more on diet and skin care) in tending to their looks, or are part of a production that is worth far more than your average porn production, which spends more making its actors look good (do you think the make-up facilities for a porn production come anywhere close to those of virtually anything you see on TV?).

2) Everything else in a porn production (lighting, post-production, etc.) is going to be of inferior quality to anything else you see on-screen, and that cheapness reveals - rather than masks - the real skin of a person.

3) Finally, you're more likely to get extreme close-ups (and all the dermitological flaws they reveal) in porn than watching, say, a sit-com or anything you see on television or in a movie.

Real people simply do not look like what you see in a $25 million dollar movie or a television show that costs six or seven figures per episode. Porn is a comparatively cheap business.

Good point; it's hard to look good when makeup is applied with a shovel. I have to wonder if porn is a parody of itself, or if people are actually turned on by women with trowel-smoothed makeup and shoes that never come off.

It is not how she looks but what she is allowing us to watch her do while fantasizing about doing the same
