  • I hate to say it but it's not possible to shrink your pores. I have relatively large pores too and oily skin. The best thing you can do is wash your face twice a day. And since you mentioned a Clinique product, I would use their Clarifying Lotion Type 3 as well. It's what I use and it helps temporarily with large pores. Oh and Idk if you know but as you age, your pores get larger. Sorry. Idk if you have oily skin as well. It's a pain to deal with, but one of the best benefits of having it is you take longer to show wrinkles. I guess it's a trade off. Hope this helps.

  • I have heard when you wash your face rinse it in cold water, that should shrink the pores. GL

  • Pore "shrinking" products only work for about half and hour. You're going to have to live with it.
