It is very difficult to "shrink pores". Pores do not have muscles or tissue that can "contract". So once a pore has become stretched, it is very hard to reverse this problem, and certainly you are not going to have much joy with any over the counter creams or lotions. We use treatments including laser therapy, chemical peels and carboxy therapy to improve the apprearance of dilated pores. Then maintaining these results with a good homecare regime is vital. Why dont you come to me or one of our Skin Renewal Doctors for a consult so that we can help you with these?
