Shrink Your Pores

Combat this common complexion issue with help from Doris Day, M.D. , a dermatologist in New York City and mother of two.

*The first step to minimizing the look of pores is to unclog them. Dr. Day recommends daily use of a gentle exfoliator, such as Olay Regenerist Detoxifying Pore Scrub ($10; If your skin’s sensitive, exfoliate a few days a week.

*After washing your face, swipe on an alcohol-free toner containing salicylic acid to sweep away any lingering dead cells. They’re a main cause of enlarged pores.

*For a quick (temporary) fix, wear a product like Laura Geller Mini Spackle Under Make-Up Primer ($10; It acts like a veil for imperfections.
