Hello you awesome people ^_^ I have been asked a few times, online and offline, on how can we shrink our pores.
Does this product shrink your pores?
What cream can shrink my large pores?
Can this cleansing brush shrink my pores?
Well, I am not a dermatologist so I don't have any research paper written by myself to let you read. I wish I could make one. However, as a beauty blogger, I have attended some beauty workshops especially skincare workshops and the truth told by dermatologists I met, NO you cannot shrink your pores.
Actually people have been using the wrong term all these while. The size of pores on your skin are the result of how you take care of your skin internally and externally all these while. Remember when you're small, does your pores look like how it looks like now? No, right? We once had smooth face with no large pores threatening to make ugly our pictures. Now as we grow up, we realize that our pores get bigger, and does it happen within days? No, it takes years. So the same goes to making it look less noticeable and eventually smaller, it takes years. Products available at drugstores can only help to make your pores less noticeable, not shrink it overnight, fortnight or within a month.
The good news is, there are hundreds of ways and products that can help us minimize the appearance of pores. Make it less visible. So, the conclusion is, cleanse your face properly, use the correct skincare for your targeted concern and take care of your body entirely. You will be the prettiest and healthiest looking human, and then be grateful. So please stop believing that "cream X can shrink your pores with a week" or "cleanser X can make your pores smaller after 3 use". They're a joke.
