Face cream is great, however, if your skin leans towards the oil side, be careful of the type of cream you apply. Oil-based face creams can cause clogging and blemishes. The oil mixes with dead skin cells and increases clogging, further stretching each pore. Using an oil-free face cream can help reduce the appearance of large pores.

Use the right cleanser
