Unfortunately, there is no cosmetic ingredient that can completely eliminate enlarged pore size. Enlarged pores are typically due to increased oil production of the oil glands. This excess oil mixes with other substances (such as dead skin cells) in the pore to form a clog which makes it difficult for the oil to flow freely, which causes the pore itself to enlarge. Steps to avoid/reduce enlarged pores are avoiding products with drying, irritating ingredients, use of salicylic acid exfoliant (with no irritating ingredients), use of clay masks to absorb excess oils, and use of high-dose vitamin A (retinol) or its derivatives (retinoids).
