Hey girls.. The past few weeks, i've noticed that my pores are very visible on my forehead & cheeks. I've always known they were there but they just look huge these days. What can i do to cover them up. I use Estee Lauder DoubleWear foundation but that doesnt seem to do much, if anything i think they're more visible when i wear make up. I know Clinique have the Instant Perfector but i have that and it doesnt do much really. Any suggestions?

i need help with this too. something i know works is to get a facial, because they cleanse your pores then so they will get smaller and your skin will have a healthier glow too. if you can afford its its definetily worth it. also, exfoliating and weekly face steams and face masks will help reduce them. i do however think that if you keep packing on makeup it will just make them bigger because they will get clogged.

My pores are pretty big, they seem even bigger when my face is even a bit greasy, so I use blotting sheets all the time. Also, in my case clinique blended face powder makes the pores appear much much smaller. Some acidic and retinoid treaments make the pores smaller, but I am not sure what kinds are available in the us...

My pores are getting larger and run in my family so I'm not looking forward to when I get older! I tried the Photofinish primer with the DW when I used to use it and it didnt really do anything for me. that's why I gave it away, IMO there's a lot of hype around this product and while I think it probably does work for some people the majority of people I know who have tried it didnt see any difference. I also find putting my foundation on with a brush accentuates my pores so I just stick to using my fingers - not sure whether you use a brush or not though Laura??

I have huge pores too -- on my cheeks (right by my nose almost) :( and like you said Laura they are even more visible with makeup. I try to keep my skin and clean as possible, do masks, and use this pore refiner from Prescriptives which does fill them in a little.

I just started with the ACV, and have noticed the oil on my face has gone some and my skin feels softer and smoother. But I would like to see any other suggestions for this issue, so keep them coming girls!!

I use green tea as a toner & it seems to refine my pores pretty good.

I've heard really good things about the Pure Luxe Eraser (not the powder form), and that it is great for filling in pores. I have yet to try it, but I plan on ordering within a week or so. www.pureluxecosmetics.com Maybe Becky has tried it since she has ordered the pigments from them?

Some people say primer; some say pore minimizer. I use Cle de Peau's Translucent Corrector (when I am going out at night / special occasions). It is pretty pricey ($50 last time I checked) but it will last for quite a long time as you only need a little.

It is described as a silky powder concealer which minimizes the appearance of pores. Spherical pore diminishing powder minimizes/creates a perfect finish. Oil-attracting powder absorbs excess sebum to prevent oxidation. Enhances the long-lasting wear of foundation.

Idealist from EL should help quickly but for real pore reducing I'd recommend Clarins Lotus oil. Used regulary make them much smaller ( I can see results by me)
