Enlarged Pores
Unfortunately, there is no way to permanently shrink enlarged pores.  Genetics and aging are the two main factors that contribute to large pores.  When a pore becomes clogged by oil, bacteria, and dead skin, the pore's diameter expands, making the pore appear more prominent.  Using an exfoliating cleanser and skin products that remove blackheads such as retinoids and hydroxyacids can help minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.  Regular facial extraction treatments can also keep the pores clear of debris.  Also, if a person has one or two noticeably dilated pores, they can be removed surgically with excellent cosmetic results.
