Large Pores in my Face...

I have a lot of enlarged pores in my face. There are also some cracks. In my teen age, i had many pimples and now a few. I think that is the cause. Please tell me how to get rid of these large pores and cracks in my face...Thanks in advance!

Re: Large Pores in my Face...

Pores look bigger only because dead skin cells, dirt and oil are trapped within each pore. I have heard that Dove soap was really good for washing your face with. It is mild and to use only warm (tepid) water to rinse with. Stay away for astringents as they irritate the skin. Over washing can cause the cracks.
With a good cleaning everyday, you should notice them getting smaller. Make sure to use non oily moisturizer after also. Oil of Olay makes the best IMHO.
BTW, your pores do not have muscle around the opening to open and close with, so they only get bigger by getting dirt etc. in them.

Re: Large Pores in my Face...

Thanks for that fast reply, mommabee!
But I thought they are scars made by pimples in my teen age.
And I also fear that whether these pores are permanent when they are scars of pimples.
Is that true?
Please reply your sugestion regarding this...
