How to get rid of large pores for oily skin

First post of 2010… YAY!!!!
Here are some tips I learned on youtube for getting rid of (kinda) large pores for oily skin.  If you have large pores you know what I mean. They are on the cheek area near your nose and they are ANNOYING.

Wet your face with warm water to open up the pores (contrary to what we are trying to do here).

Apply a dime sized amount of cream/ gel cleanser that has retinol in it. Work it into your face for about 1 min.

Wash your face

Put a hot towel (wring it out) on your face till it is no longer hot. It opens the pores so we can get the dirty stuff out. Clogged pores are usually why its large.

Slather on a thick coat of clay mask. I use the Freeman one and its great. I have a review of it on youtube. Plus only less than 5 bucks.

Wait for mask to dry and remove mask. Then wet face with cold water to close pores as well to remove left over mask.

Use a moisturizer that matte’s out the face and contains salicylic acid.

Now you are done.


Before you put on makeup… apply some matte foundation primer. ClearFX one is good b/c it has salicylic acid to treat acne as well as other properties to matte face.

Note: This is a re-post from my old blog!
