About six months ago, I started thinking about dating again. After having a spouse pass away a few years ago, I knew that it was time for me to get back out there, date, and have a great time. However, it was a really difficult transition for me, and I knew that it would be hard to get back into the dating pool. To make the process easier, I turned to a spa and salon in my area to see what they could do for me. They did my hair, gave my skin a nice buffing, and made my nails look picture perfect.

When you look at yourself in the mirror, do you feel like all you can see are your large pores? If you have large pores, then they may also tend to get clogged easily, which can lead to breakouts and blackheads. Maybe you've tried various washes and lotions to reduce your pore size but to no avail. Does this mean you just have to suck it up and live with large pores? Nope! Your next step should be to visit a med spa, where you can get any one of these treatments to reduce pore size more effectively.
Many med spas offer a long list of different facials. They often have at least one that is specifically dedicated to reducing pore size. While this treatment may have multiple steps, including a cleansing step and a moisturizing step, the most important phase of a pore-reduction facial is usually a clay mask. The practitioner will use a special kind of clay, sometimes fortified with active charcoal and other ingredients, to extract the deeper contents from your pores. With your pores empty, they will reduce in size. After the mask, your practitioner will likely apply an exfoliated substance to remove any loose skin cells to ensure they don't just move back into your pores and clog/expand them again. A facial is a gentle approach to pore reduction and a great remedy to try your first time around.
If you want something a little more intense than a facial, consider a dermabrasion treatment. The practitioner will use a sanding tool to basically abrade away the outer surface of your skin. This removes the impurities from your pores and triggers your skin to produce more collagen, which should lead to smaller pores once you heal. Your skin will be red and irritated for a week or two after treatment, but the results can be dramatic.
Another pore-reduction treatment is laser resurfacing, which involves the use of a laser to stimulate your skin's natural collagen production, thereby reducing your pore size. This treatment may cause some itching and stinging for a few days, but nothing too serious. Most patients do need several treatments before they noticed dramatic results. It's a good option if you only have large pores on certain parts of your face; your practitioner can target-treat those areas.
If you have large pores, do not assume you're just stuck with them for life. Visit a med spa, and request one of the treatments above.
