Large facial pores can thwart your efforts to achieve clear, smooth skin. Enlarged pores are not just located on the nose; they can appear anywhere on your face, including your cheeks. While you can't reduce your pore size permanently, you can tighten them temporarily. Because large pores are often clogged with dirt and oil, proper cleansing can go a long way toward making them appear smaller. Regular exfoliation is the key to minimizing the pores on your cheeks.

Go to a spa for a facial once or twice a month. Estheticians soften your skin and gently squeeze out the blackheads that can stretch your pores.


Wash your face with an exfoliating cleanser twice a day. Look for a version with alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids to provide a mini-peel at home.


Rinse your face with cold water after washing. Cold temporarily tightens pores, helping your cheeks appear smoother. Always dry your face with a fresh, clean towel to avoid introducing bacteria into your pores.


Apply moisturizer with sunscreen. Sun exposure can damage the collagen in your skin, causing your pores to expand over time.


Finish your skincare routine with an oil-control gel to keep your pores tight and give your skin a matte appearance.
