Shrink Pores?

5 posts in this topic

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.

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.
