    I have rather large pores on my face, and it's driving me crazy. My friends and family all say I'm crazy and that they're not noticeable at all, but I think they're all just pretty little liars. I eat pretty healthily, I work out or run every day.... I figured that would be enough. icon_neutral.gif

    not too much you can do about it. Astringent sometimes helps. Salicylic will cut oil, and sometimes reduce the size because the pores are clean. Glycolic and other acids break the bonds of skin cells refining the surface quite a bit. I'd say start there.
    -Oh and tons of sunscreen all year round. (UVA stresses our skin out, breaks the bonds in collagen, and this creates a sagging appearance. Sagging skin=big pores)

    IIRC the size of your pores depends where on the earth you grew up. People who grew up in northern latitudes have big pores, people in southern ones have smaller ones. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Well said...and ya might wanna do a face dip in ICE, too!!
    When I lived in the "snow country", I used to scrub my face with sea salt, do a mask with egg whites and avocado and fill the bathroom sink with snow and rub my face in it.
