Does the skin regimen help to make pores on your face smaller?

Nothing will make your pores smaller except Accutane, which actually shrinks your sebaceous glands. Even on Accutane, the effect is only temporary, as sebaceous glands slowly grow back.

I disagree with the post above. Nothing will probably ever permanently shrink pores, but if you stick with products that promote collagen, such as vitamin a (retinoids) and vitamin c, you may see improvement. When I started using topical vitamin c I saw a huge improvement. I use the one by Philosophy called Turbo Booster C Powder, but you can probably go to a health food store and purchase ascorbic acid (vitamin c) for less money.

You! Yes, you. The one reading this. You are beautiful, talented, amazing and simply the best at being you. Never forget that.

 

You don't have to be pretty. You don't owe prettiness to anyone. Not to you boyfriend/spouse/partner. Not to your coworkers, especially not to random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother, you don't owe it to your children, you don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked "female."

Plea to the world: Eat less meat! Or better yet, don't eat it at all! The meat industry violates basic animal rights, it's destroying our planet, and there are so many health benefits you can gain by decreasing/eliminating meat from your diet. Don't let me tell you- do your own research so you can decide for yourself. (The dairy and egg industries are just as horrendous).

I highly recommend watching the movie Earthlings. ^

The Regimen itself will not have any effect on your pore size.
Pore size can be genetic, and those of us with oily skin tend to have larger pores. I don't know of anything otc that really makes a big difference. There are some prescriptions though that can help their appearance by slowing down the oil glands. You will need to see a dermatologist for those options.
