I have large pores on my nose and chin, could you please advise on how to minimize these?

I have large pores on my nose and chin, could you please advise on how to minimize these? 1Good day to you! Thanks so much for your enquiry.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unfortunately there is no cleanser or face wash that is going to be able to cure dilated pores. Once pores have been ‘stretched’ and dilated, there is no way of ‘shrinking them’ without using really active products and even incorporating some facial treatments in your skincare program. It’s also very difficult for me to tell you exactly WHAT treatments to incorporate without being able to see exactly how severe the problem is.

There are some cleansers on the market that are mildly resurfacing and these will help to an extent, but won’t necessarily ‘cure the problem”. These include products like Neostrata’s Foaming Glycolic Wash, or Nimue’s Cleanser and Conditioner. So using a cleanser that will keep those dilated pores free of forming more blockages and also mildly resurfaces on an on-going basis will certainly help. I would also suggest an active product that will stimulate the skin’s dermal functions, such as a growth factor serum or moisturiser (serums are generally more active so if you are able to use one of these that would be great). Something like Skin Medica’s Recovery Complex or Lamelle’s Dermaheal Serum.

Then on an on-going basis, to prevent this situation from getting any worse, you MUST make sure you use a good broad spectrum SPF every single day. The more your skin is exposed to the sun while unprotected, the worse it will get.

  1. i’ve recently started taking better care of my skin , investing in a basic cleanser and toner as well a lancome day cream (spf 30) and found that my pores are a lot smaller and less noticeable now as a result. thanks for the great advice

  2. Sounds like some good products to check out there. Certain brands have been promising things they simply can’t live up to…At least this is the truth.
