Have you tried different brands of pore strips?  Those REALLY work for me!

Other than that the only thing I can suggest is putting primer on your nose to cover up the bumps blackheads may cause.

Pore strips are like magic! I use the Biore brand pore strips and they work wonders. I like Biore brand because they have a little flap that comes down and gets the nostril area that most other pore strips miss

@BetterSherm:  Pore strips and regular cleanings with a gentle cleanser with beads (I use Biore everyday pore unclogging with soft beads.)  Make sure to use an astringent and a facial lotion afterwards to close your pores.  I struggle with this daily myself and you just have to put in a little extra work.

The nose strips peel my skin off! They work great on my fi though!

I have finessed the art of squeezing without breaking or overtaxing the skin. (I know that’s “pooh-poohed” on every dermatological website but it works for me. I’m not sure everyone can do this, for example my FI’s fingers are too oily and he is too clumsy when he tries, so YMMV.) After that, I wash my face very thoroughly with cold water and do not wear any cosmetic of any kind for at least a few hours. This lets the pores close back in on themselves again without getting clogged with cosmetics.

My FH has much bigger nose pores than I do and he usually just leaves them be, but very rarely it’ll bug him and he’ll use a nose strip followed by a toner, which is basically just alcohol. His nose looks decent for a guy’s nose.

Remember to exfoliate.  I like apricot scrub 1- 2x/week.

Place a warm wash cloth over your face or take a shower to open up your pores.  Gently use a comedone extractor and follow up with either cool water or toner to help close your poors.  It works like a charm.

@doberman:  +1! Apricot pit scrubs are much better than those plastic microbead scrubs!

I use idealist pore minimizer, cleanse tone and exfoliate. using a oil free foundation seems to help as well.
