Solution: Shrink Huge Pores With These Four Miracle Products

August 27, 2008 by SheFindsErin

I don't mean to brag (OK, maybe just a little) but normally I have pretty flawless skin. Every once in a while, though, I'll look in the mirror and be confronted with the dermatological equivalent of a black olive pizza—a face that's greasy, blotchy and covered in pores big enough to be counted individually. Hey, we've all had days where we've felt like there's an entire solar system inhabiting our faces, and we all have different ways of dealing. Below, some proven pore minimizers in formulas that suit everyone's fancies.


Best Makeup:
If your pore problems tend to crop up at a moment's notice, carry around the futuristic-looking red pod of Freeze & Go Instant Smoother and Brightener from Freeze 24-7 ($65). It's perfect for on-the-go pore patrol since it has its own built-in mirror. Simply remove the mirrored panel, twist the tube, and get the tiniest dab of cream on your fingertip. Used over or under makeup, Freeze & Go makes pores disappear, and works the same vanishing act on creases, wrinkles and minor blemishes.

Best Cleanser:
Sometimes it takes a one-two punch to knock pores out. Opt for Neutrogena's Pore Refining Cleanser ($8) for a dose of smoothing alpha and beta hydroxy delivered via exfoliating microbeads. Once you've opened pores up and cleaned 'em out, deliver the final blow with Neutrogena's matching Pore Refining Toner ($8). The non-drying formula gives skin a balancing boost while making the appearance of pores a thing of the past.

Best Moisturizer:
Even the oily-skinned deserve a good moisturizer, and Bliss' Steep Clean Moisture Lotion ($48) is a great pick for keeping skin soft and even and keeping oil at bay. The sheer formula is super lightweight and mattifying (killing the greasy pizza effect), and the retinol minimizes pores and keeps blackhead outcroppings from ruining your day.

Best Mask: Once-in-a-while pore crises like mine call for the breaking out of the big guns. I like to zap angry pores with a dose of Burt's Bees Healthy Treatment Pore Refining Mask ($8), a mixable powder that lends a DIY air to the proceedings and allows for customizable treatment. The directions call for adding water to a tablespoon of the mask powder, but you can sub in yogurt to combat dry skin, grapefruit juice to banish oil, or tomato juice for soothing a fussy face. The base of the mask, French green clay, draws impurities out of their hiding places and sends them packing, no matter which mix-in you choose.
