I have enlarged pores and sensitive skin. What can I do?

Asked by Irena

I have enlarged pores on my nose and chin. What steps can I take to shrink the pores without damaging my skin? My skin is super sensitive to soaps and makeup and makes my skin itchy so I do not use them. I just wash my face lightly with a facecloth morning and night. Is it too late to tighten my pores at this late stage in my life? I am in my 60s.

    For your enlarged pores on your nose and chin, see episode 21 What Causes and Minimizes Enlarged Pores. The suggestions in that episode can help to shrink the appearance of the pores without damaging your skin. With sensitive skin, one must proceed very slowly and carefully with exfoliants. It is not too late to shrink the appearance of pores at any age if proper treatment is used.
