The size of your pores is genetically determined, but there are a few ways you can visibly reduce the appearance of pores on the face.
First, make sure that you aren’t using products that irritate your skin, as they can make your pores inflamed and more prominent.
Second, use a topical retinol cream (a good retinol cream is Redermic R) to keep your pores clear and build collagen in your face which can help visibly diminish their appearance.
