  • Wear Sunscreen

Too much sun exposure is also a big factor to make your pores large and visible, so always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 on daily basis. When you are going in the sun, don’t forget to wear a big hat or take an umbrella to avoid the direct sunlight.

  • Treat Yourself with a good Chemical Peel-off Mask

  • Don’t use oil-based creams

So, if you have an open-pores problem, always choose water-based products instead of oil-based.

  • Avoid shimmery makeup

If you are a makeup lover, especially shimmery makeup, try to avoid shimmery or luminizing makeup where it is possible. Keep your shimmery makeup limited to specific areas like the tops of the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, forehead, and around the eyelids. Shimmery makeup is also a major factor for enlarged pores and it also shows your pores bigger than actually, they are.

  • Drink Plenty of water, eat well and do Exercise Regularly
