This size of pores is different in each person. The size is usually determined by genetics, but pores often open up and get larger after waxing. When pores open up, they normally can be seen by the naked eye, which is sometimes cosmetically undesirable. Large open pores also can collect dirt and oils if you are not careful. Getting rid of your open pores can make that area of the body look better and prevent pimples or sores from appearing.

  1. 1

    Rub a skin toner on the area with large pores every day using a cotton ball. This method can help temporarily to close the pores, making them smaller.

  2. 2

    Combine soft butter with salt and mix well. Apply this mixture to the area with large pores and leave it on for 20 minutes. Thoroughly rinse off the mixture, and your pores should be smaller.

  3. 3

    Apply tomato juice to the area of the skin using a cotton ball. Completely rub it in the skin, let it set for 20 minutes and then rinse. Do this every day to slowly reduce your pores sizes.

  4. 4

    Whip together egg whites and a couple of drops of lemon juice. Rub this mixture over the area with large pores and allow it to dry. Rinse off the mixture with warm water to reveal smaller pores. This method is best for middle-aged women.

  5. 5

    Rub an ice cube wrapped in a cloth on the area with large pores. This method only will temporarily make the pores smaller, but it will make them smaller quickly.
