topical apple cider vinegar has been working wonders on my nose and forehead.

I am slowly introducing it to my face. Whenever I try something new I put it on my forehead because if it gives me any sort of initial break out or just absolutely does not work, my hair covers it up. However, so far, I have been putting it on my nose and forehead, both working great. I used to have large and very painful pimples on my forehead, but now they are MUCH MUCH smaller and many much less.

You can shrink pore size within 3-8 days if you find out what is causing your acne.

B5, which was popular about 2 years ago, shrunk pores completely after 3 days and completely stopped all acne. However, for some reason, B5's effects only lasted 2 years.

I have found the GREATLY reducing my protein/fat intake completely shrunk my pores within 8 days. When I eat protein/fats, I gets cysts and blackheads. When I remove them from my diet (almost entirely - but not completely) my pores shrink, the cysts shrink and my skin becomes flawless.

You can try all those masks and everything, but in the end, it is truly about finding what is causing the acne.

yeah stop getting blackheads. Also if the skin in and around the pore is dry it will be harder to shrink because there isnt moisture/lubrication to make it supple

Well my acne is pretty much history. I have a few red marks that are fading slowly, but my face is smooth. I do, however, have large pores on my cheeks below my eyes next to my nose, and on my nose. The rest of my pores look okay. I think I'll try that apple cider thing.

Be sure you dilute the apple cider vinegar. Some people say they do 5-10 parts water per 1 part apple cider vinegar. I do half water half ACV. You may want to start smaller until you figure out what you skin can tolerate.

Also only leave on your skin for ~10 minutes and wash off. I usually just put it on right before I wash my face.

PS: All apple cider vinegar bottles will say "diluted with water to 5% acidity." You still need to dilute it.

I have tried "Vitalize" peel.... It is a light chemical peel, you do a series of 6 at about $100.00 a pop. I noticed that it not only helped my acne but also got rid of red marks, and made my pores around my nose and cheeks look much smaller and smoother. Lots of my friends noticed a difference in my face and they didn't know I was getting the peels. It is worth a try... if you are interested look the peel up online and get some more info.

Some of the downsides besides the price are some temporary very mild stinging.... and light peeling for a few days after the peel is applied.

I thought it was totally worth it... infact I am going to go get a touch up peel this week.

Shrinking pore size? First of all you would want to increase pore size so you don't get a build up of oil and have even worse acne. Wrong goals homie!

Pores don't shrink or enlarge. They can appear larger when they're clogged with junk and can get stretched out permanently. Keep the pores unclogged and you'll be less likely to end up with stretched out pores. Look up exfoliation techniques. There are mechanical and chemical means of exfoliation.
