Some men are bothered by the size of their pores and wonder daily “how can I shrink them?” Unfortunately for those gentlemen, they’re asking the wrong question. Your pores are a fixed size, there is no such thing as “shrinking them”. Don’t fear, however, as you can reduce the appearance of their size on your face.
The best way to reduce the appearance of pores is to keep the skin clean and exfoliated. It’s pretty simple, pores appear larger when clogged with dirt, oil, and dead skin cells. Their core function is funnel sebum for the skin’s surface, to keep it from becoming dry and dull; if they become clogged their appearance becomes markedly more noticeable.
Sloughing away the dead skin and excess oil with an exfoliating cream like Reset Microdermabrasion Cream will keep the pores clean and working, reducing their appearance on the skin. You have other options as well, one alternative is alpha-hydroxy acid, which breaks down stuck-together dead skin cells on the surface.
Avoid Thick Moisturizers To Reduce the Appearance of Pores
You’re going to want to avoid heavy moisturizing creams, specifically ones that are not engineered for the face. These can further clog your pores because they take longer for your skin to absorb, so they just sit on top of your skin.
You’re going to want to use a light gel to keep your skin moisturized and healthy. This won’t simply sit on the surface but will penetrate deep into the pores without clogging them and successfully moisturize the skin.
