  • I have tried everything, finally I went against mainsteam advice and used rubbing alcohol...yep, it works! ...I just make sure to use some good facial cream afterwards and the pores shrink back where they belong!

  • Definitly give JAFRA's Vitamin C Peel kit a try. It's a facial peel that's a gentle alternative to salon peel treatments. This softnes fine lines, miimizes pore size and refines complexion. Give yourself a facial once a week. And since you have oily skin, use an Oil COntroling facial set, like JAFRA's Oil Control Dynamics Skin care set, to control the oil and keep it balanced in moisture. Your pores are opened so much because while it's oily, your skin's lacking a balance of good moisture. Look it all up at www.myjafra.com/dfloyd. Hope this helps.

  • I have read that no matter what companies tell us (money money) that we are stuck with the pores that we were dealt. However, you may wish to consult a dermatologist.

  • Natural way, IMO this is what works for me.
    1/2 cup oatmeal mix with enough warm water to form paste, put on face let dry the sluff off, I also steam my face, use vinegar to tighten my pores, and use an eggwhite mask to tighten my entire face. All those chemicals in high priced products can really irritate your skin, as they do mine. Happy face to you.

  • You really can't change the size of your pores, just how big they "LOOK". Sometimes rinsing my face with cold water after I take a hot shower really helps. If that doesn't help, try some gentle exfoliator & some kind of mask that's supposed to tighten the pores.

  • The only way to make pores appear smaller is to keep them clean so the dirt doesn't showcase them. I use Avons Thermal Cleanser. It is wonderful and your face feels clean, but not dry.
