What can you say about a pore minimizer? Just what the name means that it will minimize pores for oily skin types. It has to clean out the pores to prevent them from excreting excessive oil on skin that is already oily. The product has to reduce the size of the pores so that oil cannot accumulate in the pores and this will discourage acne-producing acne from making their home in the pores. This will allow the pores to breathe and less likely become clogged from oil, dirt, and other foreign substances.
