When you really want your skin to look flawless, but you have coarse skin, fine lines or large pores, you can use a pore minimizer to smooth out the large pores and fill in the lines. These type of products do not work like IPL treatments, they do not shrink pores. They are simply designed to “fill in” the pores, like a primer. I describe it as looking like a blurring effect. You use the pore minimizer, then put your foundation on. Once you wash it off, the pore minimizer effect is gone.
The best temporary pore minimizer is Benefit’s The PoreFessional Pro Balm.
