There are specific treatments that help reduce the appearence of open/enlarged pores.Thanks both of you. The first link was better than the second one Babs. But it doesn't really explain What can be done about them to reduce the size aside from washing your face.
Is there any special treatment that can be helpful?
You need to follow a really good skincare routine, using oil control products. To minimise the follicles (I would've been :Grope: at college for saying pores)does anyone not know?

they need to be kept clear of oil/debris.
I think it is possible that your moisturiser is to rich for your skin. It can be very hard to find the balance between oil control & anti aging. Personally I prefer to use a serum or jojoba oil with essential oils under my oil control moisturiser.
I have always found professional AHA treatments to be benefitial, but a really good skincare routine with the right products is essential.
I don't know if it's an Australian thing or just my teacher. What she always said was that pores were for sweat, sebaceous glands are attached to the hair follicle.I cant think for the life of me why you would have been slapped for calling them "pores", because that is exactly what they are. Open follicles is the terminology used after waxing.
All the reference books,beauty mags,skin care ranges,not to mention the end less websites I have visited over the years have all called them open/enlarged pores.How strange .
It is these "sweat pores" as you call them that show up as being enlarged though, that is why they are referred to as being enlarged/open pores.I don't know if it's an Australian thing or just my teacher. What she always said was that pores were for sweat, sebaceous glands are attached to the hair follicle.
It's actually something I have a hard time with everyone saying pores, because for me that's sweat pores.
These are all good ranges so I would say they would have something suitable for your skin type.I would go into your nearest salon and have a chat with the therapist about your concerns,she can then guide you hopefully book you in for a facial not to mention advise you on products to use at home.HTHI have found this really interesting.
I have majorly open pores and am quite happy to go for facials - which of the following would be best to try:
Dermalogica, Environ, Guinot, Crystal Clear
These are all available to me locally.
