Q: How Can I Get Rid Of Enlarged Pores? 

A: “You can’t get rid of enlarged pores, but you can make them appear smaller,” says Dr. Lisa Kellett of DLK on Avenue. “Pores are hair follicles into which oil glands empty. These areas become dilated because of excess oil and lack of collagen surrounding the pores. Using products with vitamin A – which promotes collagen regeneration – will support the pore walls, keeping them tight and small. Salicylic acid will also remove pore-clogging bacteria. A dermatologist can perform a diamond peel or treat the skin with lasers, using heat to regenerate collagen.”
