12 Keep Them Clean

First of all, it goes without saying that you should keep your skin clean. Do you know how important it is for you to keep your skin clean? By doing this, you will be minimizing the appearance of those pores on your skin. When you have excess dirt and oil in your pores, you will make them appear much larger.

11 Wash Your Face Twice a Day

I recommend you washing your face at least two times a day. This will involve you washing your face once in the morning, then once before you go to bed at night. There are a number of different products that you can use in order to reduce those pores on your face.

10 Never Go to Sleep Wearing Makeup

9 Exfoliate

Girls, exfoliation is the key. I recommend you exfoliating your skin at least one to two times each week. There are a great amount of facial scrubs out there that you will be able to purchase. Those facial scrubs will go that extra mile in getting rid of that extra oil and dirt on your face. You should make sure you get something that is gentle on your skin.

8 Use Face Masks

Many girls use a face mask in order to help tighten their skin. You will find that a face mask does wonders. However, I do not recommend you using these more than once a week. If you use them more than once a week, they could do the opposite effect and make your skin too dry.

7 Try Pore Strips

Have you ever thought about pore strips. These are strips that you will be able to put across your nose. You will be surprised at the extra dirt that hides in that area. When you pull the strip off, you will be surprised at how much you see on it. Take note that many of the strips recommend you leaving them on for ten minutes. The great news is that you are going to look better immediately.

6 Apply a Pore Minimizer

A pore minimizing skin re-smoother is a great thing to apply to your face in order to reduce the appearance of pores. I have one that I like to use once in the morning time and once when it is bedtime. I enjoy using it simply because I am able to immediately see the results. I use it right after I get out of the shower. I then follow up with a moisturizer and during the morning time, I put on my foundation afterwards. I absolutely enjoy it simply because it keeps my face looking smoother all day long.

5 Try Home Remedies

There are many home remedies out there that you can use. I like to make my own mask out of lemon juice and egg white. Basically, you take egg white and

4 Try Tomatoes Mask

Another home remedy that I like is called a tomatoes mask. This one is simple and effective. Basically, what I do is cut up tomatoes into slices and apply them to my face. I leave them on my face for about ten minutes. Some people choose to drain the juice, mash it into a pulp and put it on their face.

3 Consider a Procedure

If you have tried all of the tips and none of them are working for you, then you could always step it up a notch further and have a professional procedure done that can help your situation.

2 Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is one of those procedures that is very popular. This procedure can be done in the doctor’s office. It will work to remove dead surface skin cells. This will create a smooth complexion.

1 Use a Primer

In order to get that smooth look, then using primer under your foundation is a great idea. If you do not wear makeup, then apply the moisturizer to your face, then the primer on top of it.
