Shamelessly place marking as I've had this problem for as long as I can remember and haven't found a solution. Using a primer under make up makes them less visible but doesn't solve the problem.

Have you tried

- nose strips
- face scrubs (St Ives apricot is my favourite)
- hot flannel then extraction?

All the above work for me, but then follow up with a decent toner to close the pores up again

Google sebaceous filaments in pretty sure that's what you're describing, not blackheads

That should be I'm not in

My Dh has one of these on his lip and one n his cheek, like you say as soon as it is 'squozen' it leaves a hole which looks as bad and then just fills up again!

Placemarking for an answer!

The only thing that's improved, and now almost cleared, my enlarged pores is the oil cleansing method. I use lots of oils on my face, and my skin is the best it's ever been.

I think all these years of oil free and effectively stripping away the oils were actually doing more harm than good.

I used to have this, still do a bit but nowhere near as noticeable. Using a hot cloth cleanser really helped as did Alpha H Liquid Gold.

Just examined my snout close up and the pores are barely noticeable...probably means my skin is drying out, prunelike, in time for the menopause hmm
