Anyone who has lived with visibly large pores will understand the struggles of getting rid of them. If you have large pores, there are probably two reasons why - you either have oily skin or it's your genetics to blame. While there's no way to change the size of your pores, you can make them appear smaller if you follow these simple and easy steps. Let's check them out, shall we?
The very first thing you've got to do is scrub off the dead skin cells. If you don't, they could clog your pores and give rise to breakouts. Make it a point to exfoliate your face at least 2-3 times a week. You can either use your fingertips or a soft loofah to wash your face. While scrubbing, make sure to do so in circular motions. This is a very important step in your bid to shrink those pesky pores.

If you have naturally oily skin, you should invest in skincare products that contain clay or charcoal ingredients. Believe it or not, but this helps to remove oil and dirt from the pores. A clay or charcoal pack also feels cooling on the skin and improves its overall texture. You've got to try it believe it.

For tighter, firmer skin, you must try to boost collagen in your own way. Getting a facial massage done regularly can help stimulate the collagen production. It also helps to improve blood circulation and calm your nerves down. Also, keep a watch on your diet, eat a lot of spinach, broccoli, red peppers, sweet potatoes, mackerel, carrots, salmon and berries. Along with food, keep yourself hydrated. Drink lots of water and layer your skin with hydrating skincare products. And that's how you do it!
