Ways To Make Pores Smaller
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you ever look closely in the mirror, you will see your pores. Some people have small pores and other people have larger pores. Every persons skin is uniquely theirs. Large pores are unsightly and can make you feel like your skin is greasy and not very clean. Unfortunately there is no way to get rid of your pores. You need them to help your skin breathe and stay healthy. There is no real way to "shrink" your pores. However, there are steps you can take at home to reduce their appearance and make them look smaller.

In order to shrink your pores and make them look smaller you must make sure that you are cleaning your face the right way. Since there are so many different skin types, it is essential to purchase products geared to the special needs of your skins qualities. Is your skin dry? Oily? Do you have combination skin? Make sure to read the label of your cleanser closely to make sure it is the right one for you. When you clean your skin, use a gentle circular motion making sure to take care around your eyes so you don't get any cleanser in them. When drying your face, use a towel and a light patting motion. Don't rub! You also need to be careful not to over-clean your skin. If you wash your skin too frequently it will start producing more oil, which will clog your pores and create a cycle that is hard to break.

Go to the drugstore or local discount store and walk down the skincare aisle. Look for the facial scrubs and masks. Decide wether a scrub or a mask would be better for your face, making sure to select the item that is for your particular skin type. Following the directions on the container of the product you choose is very important. You don't want to hurt or damage your skin. Do not overuse these products in a vain attempt to make your pores smaller, faster. It won't work and can possibly do more harm than good.

The next item on your to-do skin care checklist is to use some toner. Toner helps to clean up any leftover debris from the mask or scrub that you used. If this debris is left on your skin it will clog your pores and make your problems worse, not better. It is best to use a clean, fresh cotton ball to apply the toner to your face. When done, throw the cotton ball away. Do not reuse it! Let the toner air dry off your face. Once it is dry, apply a light coat of moisturizer to rehydrate your skin and keep it looking vibrant and fresh

If you try this routine and keep following it for about a month, you should start to see results. Your skin should be clearer and healthier. If it's not, and you decide that you need further help, you can see a dermatologist and hear what they have to suggest. Just be aware that dermatologists sometimes use and prescribe medications for your skin that may be quite harsh. Sometimes those chemicals make the problem worse before it gets better. Know all of your skin care options before you decide what to do. That way you can decide which of the ways to make pores smaller you would like to try.
