These Are the Best Pore Minimizers for Smooth, Even Skin

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but here it is: Regardless of how many miracle-boasting products you massage into your face every day, there’s no one offering that’s going to erase your pores overnight. But don’t freak out just yet—there are some formulas that can seriously help, and with time, majorly improve the texture of your skin.

“The interesting thing about pores is they respond remarkably well to small treatments and skincare regimens,” says Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group in NYC. “Pores, like any hole, can fill up and stretch if over-filled or filled for too long,” she explains.

As a general rule of thumb, Nazarian suggests minimizing sun exposure (a known pore enlarger) and leaving the picking and extracting to a professional. “Don’t try to squeeze them out or clean them yourself—you could really do major damage to your skin,” she warns. Ahead, we rounded up seven pore minimizers that really work. Shop our favorites, from sunscreen to silky makeup primers to heavy-duty spot treatments.
