I have the same problem and people have suggested getting a facial to me (which I have never tried before). This might work for you as well?...

Sadly, pores are genetic and only get larger as you age
You can't get rid of the blackheads on your nose, that's a fact, regardless of what you try. You can only remove them temporarily though...

As for the facials... they are quite bad for your face. It only irritates your skin and most people end up getting small bruises and break out.

My advice on your pores? Live with it. They aren't going to go away.

you have to get good facials.... the facials you speak of china are the worthless kind and do more harm like you said a good one will improve your skin for SURE but it is $$$$ .... and they do remove blackheads but there is something that will improve your skin 100% shrink pores somewhat because it decreases oil, will remove every single blackhead you have and zit... accutane but i got in fight about this before so that is all i will say.

With enough money there must be a way to have your pores done...Britney probably just has someone else's skin grafted onto her face whenever she thinks she's getting blackheads...

facials with extractions are the best! I had them regularly before my wedding and my skin looked great. Lele is right -you have to go to a good place with a good, licensed esthetician. I can't afford them right now but exfoliating 3X a week, a purifying mask once a week, and Clinique Turnaround Cream or another cream with AHA's in it works for me!
