Lets talk about pores. There are billions of products out there that will claim to "shrink" and "remove" large pores. These companies prey of consumers who do not understand how skin really works!
Your pores do not open or close because your pores dont have muscles to expand or shrink. Your pores can appear large when they are clogged with oil and dirt, using blackhead strip or other blackhead product only remove superficial dead skin or debris for the skin but it is not going to help with pores.
To unclog and tighten the pores, it is important to exfoliate 2-3 times a week and treatment like microneedling collagen induction therapy can help reduce the pore size
