I have sensitive skin so there aren't a lot of products I can use on my face. However I love to make an at home facial steam bath, it's very easy and I feel like it opens my pores completely and gets rid of any build up, therefore minimizing them. You can also add a few drops of essential oil to the water to make it even more luxurious.

As far as I know, pore strips only clean out blackheads and don't minimize the actual size of pores. I've actually found that they can make pores appear larger over time, and contribute to broken capillaries around the nose.
The best way I've found is to use a gentle toner on a daily basis. Also look for a mask with pore-minimizing ingredients and apply this where your pores are larger.

I have large pores too and started using clay masks once or twice a week. I exfoliate every week too and they're slowly getting smaller. It will take time to see difference so just be patient.
I would also recommend facial treatments like microdermabrasion top remove dead skin cells and for any product you use to be easily absorbed by your skin.

I used to hate my pores on my nose and beside my nose. It is like they are always large and you can squeeze out white goop.. YUCK. But, I don't have that problem much anymore.
#1 - Use a professional face wash and toner. Use the Normaderm Cleansing Gel by Vichy to wash your face. Your pores will tighten immediately, but don't stop, you need to use it daily and long term.
#2 - Use a professional toner, again the Normaderm by Vichy. At first, toners can sometimes seem like it is making you break out, but in fact, it is pulling out all those built up toxins and oils plugging your pores, so you might break out initially, but within 2 weeks with a proper cleans and toner regimen, you will notice a complete difference for the better.
#3 A trick I use when my pores are plugged though and look big, Use 100% vitamin E oil, apply a heavy layer to your whole face, it will be sticky and hard to rub on at first, but then it will "melt" a bit with the heat of your skin. Let it sit and soak it for at least 2 hours, If you want, squeeze out any blackheads or blocked pores without damaging your skin. The Vit E has softened them all up and they just come right out. Then use a gel cleanser afterwards with really warm water, pat dry with a clean towel and let the air get at your face. It will close the pores up. Don't every apply face lotion immediately after cleansing, as your pores are still open. Wait until your face is completely dry, like at least 20 minutes Sorry this is so long. Hope it helps you out.

Your Welcome. Vit E oil can reduce inflammation, size, and redness of blemishes as well. Also, research Tamanu Oil.. AMAZING STUFF. Good for all skin types. Helps renew cells. Have a good night. Take Care.

Now it makes sense to me.. thanks MissNinja..
I had a little reaction to glycolic peel a couple weeks ago causing my skin to be so itchy and then really dry. My pores were so big and all. anyway, I applied coconut oil and vitamin E oil on my dry spots. It was clear after 2 days. I was impressed.

@ jayvelyn926. Glad the coconut oil and vitamin E oil works for you
