My wedding is a year and a half away which means I have time to reduce the size of my pores! But I’m not sure what products to use or any treatments I should get! I have this one pore that is so big I literally look like I have a tiny hole on my face 🙁 I definitely don’t want that on my wedding day! Any suggestions??

The best way is a proper, consistent face care routine.
I’ve had good luck with St. Ives green tea scrub in the shower (had almost eliminated my blackheads) and a witch hazel astringent after. Make sure you never sleep in your make up, and let your skin breathe a few days a week. I also use St. Helene’s mask about once a week, and that helps as well.
There are also some great tips on using makeup to cover large pores. I suggest googling gossmakeupartist, he has a tutorial on hiding large pores on youtube. His tips in general are great.

St. Ives, I’ll have to try that. I’ve always been really good at washing my face, but for some reasons my pores are just a problem. I definitely need to get in the face mask routine though! Thanks!!

My mom has a friend who is a makeup artist and she swears that and egg white mixed with a couple drops of olive oil is the best thing for your face. You put it on and let it sit for 10-15 minutes (gets tight and itchy feeling) then rinse it off. My Fiance made fun of me when I tried it one night, then the next morning when we woke up he looked at me and said “Your skin looks so clean!” It supposedly shrinks pores too.

I don’t have terrible skin, but my one problem is that I also have fairly noticeable pores (especially when not wearing makeup). The only product I’ve tried that’s had noticeable results is Dr. Brant’s Detoxygen face wash. It has kind of an odd sensation (you rub the wash on your face and it bubbles up, and you can feel the little bubbles popping), but when all is said and done I was pretty pleased with it.

I’ll have to try it. How long does it ususally take to dry? Is it hard to keep on, I would think it would be runny. How often should I put it on?

I use Clean and Clear Blackhead Clearing scrub and it really works. The first step is to get rid of any junk making them larger. Maybe get a pro facial with extractions first to get what you can’t handle at home. Then keep up on the masks to keep them small. You can always buy makeup or primer to fill them in too if they don’t get smaller.

I’m the same way! Decent skin but big pores! Where did you buy that from? How much does it cost?

I went to Sephora… the downside is that it’s about $75 xP

First you need to a skin care regimen. You MUST wash, tone, and moisturize twice a day EVERYDAY!
Wash your face with warm water to open the pores for cleaning then splash your face with cold water to close the pores.
Its been my habits since I was 19 and I learned all of this at modeling/etiquette classes.

It is never too early to start! I second the St. Ives scrubs (I used the peach one) as they have done wonders with clarifying my skin tone and reduce pore size.
I also HIGHLY recommend getting a great face peel and using it at least twice a week. I use REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask (found at Sephora) and the difference is like night and day. You can get free samples if you want to try it out before purchasing.
