Re: Reduce Size of PoresYeah I agree with a good, consistent skin care regime...in the end even high end potions won't do much in the long run, if you don't maintain a good regime. I find that when I'm not drinking as much water my skin ends up looking very patchy and dehydrated, and the pores on my nose seem to be gaping open...lol..eww. Drink atleast 12 glasses a day, experiment around with some skincare products till you find something that suits you, and keep your fingers crossed. So far Neutrogena's Pore-Refining range and drinking lots of water helps me control my gaping-nose-pores problem.
Re: Reduce Size of PoresI just started using dermadoctor pore perfect(2 days) along with md skincare daily alpha beta daily peel (which I love, i will never be without and has totally cleared up my acne btw)
If pores are stretched from clogs, you have to get the gunk out first before they can "shrink" back to whatever size they would be if they hadn't been stretched out from being clogged.
Re: Reduce Size of PoresI tried the aspirin mask mentioned on another thread here and it totally has reduced the appearance of my pores, particularly on MY NOSE!!
It's just 4-5 aspirin tablets in a couple of drops of water for a minute or so, then I use my fingers to apply it to my skin; leave it on for five minutes, then I wet my finger tips to massage it all over my face; then rinse with warm water. I saw an instant improvement, so I do it every morning now.
Re: Reduce Size of PoresPeople with dry skin don't have visible pores, hatejeans. Chances are your skin isn't oily at all.
Oily people get big pores. There are a few pore minimizing serums on the market that fix the problem daily. When you stop using them, they come back. Use a good detergent free cleanser (one that doesn't suds much), stay away from thick or cakey foundations and powders. Give your skin a break from makeup at least one day a week. Get on a moisturizer from a professional skincare line, like MD, Murad, Dermalogica, Clarins, Shesiedo, PH Balance, that is designed to help control oil production. Most of these lines make a moisturizer that will help your skin learn to hydrate itself without over producting oil.
By the way, although the asprin mask is effective, I really wouldn't recommend it daily as it's pretty harsh on the skin. Save it for special events and get pore minimizing serum to do under your moisturizer on a daily basis.
Re: Reduce Size of Pores
It almost sounds like you need an exfoliator. Is your skin on the oily side? I would recommend trying a microdermabrasion. It helps clean out the pores and sloughs off all the dead skin cells. It can be quite expensive, but it is one of the best results you'll ever get in the skin car business.
