Pores!!!

I don't know what to do. My pores are huge! Do any of you have any suggestions on how to shink your pores? What does having big pores mean? It looks terrible but I am not sure if that is what is causing my acne. This is all kinda new to me. Any help would be great!!!

I am also using the Aztec mask. I don't know if that has any effect on it.

Re: Pores!!!

Pore size is genetically determined, so you are not doing anything that is causing your pores to be larger then they are, unless your are physically irritating the area by either using a treatment you are allergic to or trying to clean them out ect., the only treatment that has helped some people with pore shrinkage is the photofacial. No face-wash can shrink your pores, they can look smaller some days then others though.

Re: Pores!!!

I used to have very large, noticable pores that always looked clogged when you looked up close. About a month and a half ago I started taking 2 grams of vitamin B5 a day and also started using jojoba oil to moisturize my face. My pores are pracically invisible now and and not clogged any more!

Re: Pores!!!

Chemical peels can really help pore sizes.

Re: Pores!!!

I just got the johoba oil. I read on the internet that it is good to wash your face with salt before applying the oil. They said the salt would really open up your pores. Is this true?

Re: Pores!!!

I used to have massive pores. You could see them from across the room. What worked is ICE. I ice my face each night and my pores have shrunk by 70%, even my scars look less visible. You can even use a cold pack, if you like. Search the internet, you'll see the benefits of ICE. Cheers.

Re: Pores!!!

I had very large pores a few months ago, but after being religious with my cleasinng morning and night, not picking, and moisturizing with jojoba oil at bed time they are much much smaller than they have ever been.

Re: Pores!!!

If you use acids on a regular basis or get chemical peels it really helps the size.

Re: Pores!!!

I started a specific regemin every night, simply washing my face in the morning and night with a sensetive skin soap like Dove, and then finishing with Retin-A every night. It at first increased my pores but now they've really closed.

Re: Pores!!!

its all about finding what works for you-my pores always look smaller after using a clay mask aand or an egg white mask,but they go back the same after. oils ans moisturizers break me out, so i dont use them. i dont know about retin a like someone mentioned-im a little afraid of using that product but you can try it.
