If you have large pores with oily skin, it will be better to use a gel-based cleanser. Usually, creamy cleansers are designed for dry skins.
However, do not use any cleanser that includes soap and scrubbing agents as they cause to make those pores bigger. Even you tried with a high-quality cleanser; it may not work because of the way you follow. So, be sure to,
- Wash the face with warm water.

There is a common mistake that all the people do when they have an oily face. They skip out on moisturizer because of the fear which it will cause to add more oil to the skin.
Furthermore, it helps to reduce the visibility of oiliness. So, your skin will include more oil unless you use such moisturizer. There are many types of options that you can try when you are choosing a moisturizer. Especially, pay your attention to light, water-based products.
For instance, Dermalogica Active Moist, Murad Balancing Moisturizer, Olay Satin Finish Moisturizer or Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer.
Use a clay mask
Clay masks are another perfect option to try. It provides you with many benefits too. Moreover, it leads to removing dirt, dead skin and oil inside the pore. As a result of that, the pore becomes to look smaller.
What is the frequency to use clay masks? For the best results, use it once or twice for a week. Do not use it on the same day which you exfoliate. Because using a clay mask and exfoliating cause to tough the skin and improve the risk of irritation.
