    The 19 Best Pore Minimizers for Baby-Smooth Skin

    best pore minimizers


    If you ever stare into the abyss that is a magnified mirror, odds are you’ve had the horrifying thought, “Have my pores always been this big?” I would love nothing more than to magically erase my pores, but I’m sorry to tell you, that’s just not possible. What is possible is to gradually shrink and minimize them, through a mixture of effective cleansing, exfoliating, and, yes, covering them. While sometimes enlarged pores are just genetic, if you’ve been skipping steps in your skincare routine, odds are, your pores are becoming more prominent. Clogged pores can lead to blackheads and acne, which is why it’s important to stick to a routine that keeps your skin clean and soothed.

    Here, find the 19 best more minimizing products on the market, from toners, masks, and blurring primers.

    What causes enlarged pores?

    “Pores are openings in the skin that are connected to sebaceous glands (oil producing glands) and hair follicles,” says Dr. Lal. “They play a major role in helping things get in and out of your skin. Depending on how oily your skin is you may have more prominent pores than others.” Depending on your skin type, your pores may appear enlarged. “Pores are larger in people who make more skin oils,” says Dr. Lal. “Men tend to have larger pores than women. The central face including the nose have more prominent pores. Congestion from skin products, pollutants, excess oil all make pores appear bigger.”

    Is it possible to shrink your pores?

    “While you can’t completely shrink pores, you can minimize the appearance of your pores,” explains Dr. Sobel. “Over time pores can be reduced in size,” says Dr. Lal.

    How can you minimize the appearance of pores?

    “The first thing you can do is wash your face regularly,” explains Dr. Lal. “This will help decongest your pores especially if you use a cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Using a toner with witch hazel or niacinamide can also help cleanse your pores.” For long-term solutions, a retinol can also help. “The best long term way to reduce pore size is by using a topical retinoid. Retinoids shrink your sebaceous glands and thereby reduce your pore size.

    It’s also important to consistently remove any makeup. “Removing makeup at the end of the day before washing your face is essential at preventing your pores from being clogged with oils and dirt,” says Dr. Lal. “Gentle exfoliation will help remove excess oil from your pores as well. You must be consistent with your skincare.”
