Enlarged pores

I have combination skin and in my teens really suffered from acne. Now in the greasy part of my face like my nose I have very enlarged pores which seem to attract my foundation when I wear it. Can you suggest anything that might help please

Re: Enlarged pores

I am in my late 60's and I also have a greasy strip down my nose which extends to my chin. I have enlarged pore in this area as well. Down the sides of my nose if I press I get white cheesy stuff coming out of these pores as well. What is this?

Re: Enlarged pores

Enlarged pores are a very common problem. Make sure you are not using any pore blocking products and look for ingredients like retinol, AHAs,BHAs which can all help.
