Blackheads Be Gone! How One Lucky Editor Cleared Up Her Skin In Three Easy Steps

I've struggled with large pores and blackheads since my teenage years. I had pretty much given up hope until I came across Dr. Perricone’s Enlarged Pores Prescription, a set of three products that promised to tighten my pores and obliterate blackheads. Magnified pores are usually caused by excessive oil production, inconsistent cleansing habits, and skin’s loss of firmness as we age. The day I received the trio of products, I raced home to tear open the perfect little brown packages each product came in.

“Can they make a candle with this stuff?," I thought when I tried the totally gentle yet effetive Citrus Facial Wash, which smelled like oranges. The second step, the Intensive Pore Minimizer, a toner with salicylic acid to exfoliate, was refreshing, cooling, and left a soft, matte finish that lasted all day. The third product, the Intensive Pore Treatment, is made with glycolic acids, again to exfoliate and smooth pores. It’s been about three weeks, and not only are most of my pores practically non-existent, my skin is less oily and my skin feels a lot firmer. I even went sans makeup to work a few days last week!
