look, there is nothing wrong with your skin. It looks normal. Get over it, and go out and live your life. Honestly, you have an unhealthy obsession with your appearance to post pictures of perfectly normal healthy skin.

will the vinegar method help with my skin type problem?

should i apply vinegar to these pores?

You could try Apple Cider Vinegar, it might make them less noticable, also you could try AHA Fruit Acid, or Vitamin A topicals. Failing that you may consider a mild chemical peel, and always use a factor 30 sunscreen! Good Luck, and your skin isnt that bad!

Why Do Pores Become Enlarged?

* In some cases, genetics bares the blame, since people with oily skin (also hereditary) tend to have larger looking pores.

* Large pores are also the result of sun damage to our skin.

* Aging makes our skin thicker. The rims of cells tend to collect around single pores, making them look bigger than they actually are. As you age, you also lose collagen. In other words, your skin loses elasticity and the size of your pores increases (since there is not enough collagen to keep them tight). This is why treatments that stimulate collagen growth are effective in reducing pore size.

* Poor skin hygiene leads to sebum and dirt to collect around the edges of pores, creating the visual illusion that they are larger than they really are.

* Blackheads (or clogged pores) tend to expand pores or simply draw attention to them.

* Enlarged pores begin with inappropriate exfoliation of cells. Instead of dead cells being shed, they become microscopic plugs. But the glands keep on doing their job - producing sebum. The oil cannot reach the surface and it starts accumulating inside the pore, enlarging its diameter and causing blackheads.

i dont think that is normal looking skin, smooth skin without all those holes are normal to me..

I just looked at my skin, my roommates skin, my other roommates skin. people have pores that you can see if you are looking closely clustered on their cheeks next to their noses. it's normal. i'm sorry that you are so preoccupied with your skin (and you're a guy which makes it even worse). seriously get a life. i wish you the best.
