  1. Hi there! You are not alone - I completely relate to this - I also went on Accutane and naturally have bigger pores. I heard that shrinking your pores is not a thing. BUT making them LOOK smaller is! I struggle a lot with having oily skin and my pores get clogged easily. That stretches my pores and makes them seem bigger.

If you keep getting consistent breakouts, you should definitely talk to your dermatologist about your concerns. Everyone's journey is going to be different, so don't worry too much if you are taking longer. It will only get better!
