  • You cannot exactly "shrink" your pores. They start to look larger when there is an oil buildup. Biore has a great line of products though that will clean them out and tighten them up. I just had to pick some up because I noticed mine were starting to look crazy. Good luck!

  • What I use for my pores is Neutrgena pore refining cleanser then L'oreal Skin genesis cuz my pores are huge too and I hate my back heads.

  • Use really HOT water (or steam from a pan) to open them up and clean them out then put ice cold water on them to reduce them. You could try a clay mask to exfoliate periodically and that helps too
