What is the best way to clean small pores?

I have very small pores and they are always getting clogged.

Use witch hazel to open the pores. Use astringent or a face scrub to clean them out. Try Biore. They are a great brand.

You should try a facial scrub. St Ives makes an apricot scrub especially for blocked pores and blackheads. Try using that everyday. Use it after you have been in the shower a few minutes so that the steam can open your pores.

Neutrogena has this awesome pore cleaning machine thing. It's a tiny scrubber and you buy these pads for it that you just wet and then use. You can also take a facial cleaner with mini beads and scrubbers, and wash your face thoroughly. Use hot water so to open your pores up, and close them with cold water.

Use a cleansing non-clogging facial scrub twice daily. Make sure it has micro-beads for a deep clean. You can purchase quality brands such as Neutrogena and Clearasil, found in drug stores. If you develop blemishes or blackheads, avoid picking at them. You should also use a mud mask once a week to draw out impurities. Good Luck!

Wash area first with soap and water. Heat a washcloth with the hottest water you can tolerate. Press the washcloth onto the small pore area and hold it there for 1-2 minutes. Spread the area with french clay (mixed with a little water), noxema or egg whites. wait for it to dry, rinse with hot water then with cold.

You can make use of a pore strip that can be bought at any local drugstore. You can also buy a pore extractor, which are commonly used by dermatologists.

To get in there for a better clean try opening the pores with steam before washing. Steam from a hot shower works, but also try using the steam from boiling-water.
