Recommended Posts

how long does it take for them to shrink? i just got two really big/wide ones. =/ i've had these holes from squeezing blackheads out before, but they were never this big! it's been 2 days already and they still have not shrunk back. what should i do? thanks.

Cold water is only a temporary solution (5 min).

A dilated pore will probably fill up with sebum again, if not it will close unless it's scarred and then TCA cross might help it shrink.

you can try a baking soda mask. i tried it last night and all my pores shrank, no joke. i took 2 tbsp of baking soda, mixed in a few drops of jojoba oil, and just enough water to make it into a paste. just be careful how much water you add, it doesn't take as much as you would think. spread a thin layer on your face (might as well do it all over) and wait until it's dry (about 10 minutes) and rinse and moisturize. it may sting a little bit, but i didn't have any problems ignoring it. maybe you want to do a patch test somewhere to make sure it won't irritate you? good luck and keep us updated! ;)

What I found to really help was eggwhites. I just spread it on my face, and waited for it to dry. Then I washed my face as normal.

The large pores on my cheeks tightened significantly.
