CLOSE PORES: Pores are not like doors. You cannot open and close them whenever you wish. Pores are the openings of oil glands; they are inherited; you cannot change their size. Oily skin & severe acne may make pores “appear” larger. Squeezing blackheads & pimples can lead to permanently widened pores. Toners & astringents can make them look smaller temporarily. And get rid of your magnifying mirrors!

Many options: Good skin care begins with a good skin cleanser followed by moisturizer. Chemical peels work, microneedling, dermabrasion.
