Large pores, especially those found on the face, are considered a type of acne. These result from clogged pores, which are filled with bacteria, oil, dead skin cells and dirt. Clogged pores slowly stretch out and become more noticeable to the naked eye. At times, these pores get infected and turn into blemishes that can be very painful. To get rid of large pores, clean and exfoliate your skin to keep the pores clear and prevent them from enlarging further.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Wash your face with pore-minimising cleanser every day. This product contains alpha hydroxyl acids that penetrate your pores to remove the hardened oil pockets and dead skin cells. Apply a small amount of cleanser, Rub it all over your face, using a circular motion. Rinse the cleanser off with water. Pat your face dry with a towel.

  2. 2

    Use facial scrub about three times a week. Look for a facial scrub that has tiny beads to help smoothen rough spots on your skin and buff it. Using the scrub regularly will diminish the size of the pores to give your skin a more refined, smoother appearance. Rub the product on your dry skin and allow it to sit for two minutes before rinsing it off with water.

  3. 3

    Apply glycolic acid cleanser twice a day, once in the morning and once before going to bed. This natural acid helps absorb the oil and dirt deep within your skin. It tightens pores and brings them back to their normal size. Leave it on your dry skin for three minutes.

  4. 4

    Spread a thin layer of salicylic acid gel all over your face before you go to bed every night. This clears out your clogged pores and will make them smaller.

  5. 5

    Use your oil-free moisturiser every day to help prevent drying of skin. Apply it every morning or at night before you go to bed to keep your skin soft and hydrated.
