The Best Cleansers for Large Pores
Your pores help your skin breathe, but can become clogged over the course of the day with your skin's dead cells, oil, dirt and other debris. Clogged, dirty pores may become infected, resulting in skin problems such as acne. The debris can also keep your pores swollen and large. Choose a cleanser formulated with proven pore-cleaning ingredients to help keep your skin clear and your pores tight.
