But we can reduce its visibility. Under the hair follicles, when the oil glands fill up, its visibility increases and when we clear the oil glands its visibility reduces. When we do our facials or after cleansing or washing, many would say our pores opened up or closed. Actually our pores don't open or close. Our pores don't have any muscular movement.

So, to reduce the pore visibility, there are many methods.
First method is steaming. People have more visible pores is when the pores fill up with oil. People with Oily and combination skin have enlarged pores and fill up with oils.
