Reducing pore size

Does anyone have advice on reducing pore size on the face?  I have noticed recently that the pores on my nose and under my eyes seem to be HUGE.  I take pretty good care of my skin and use Kiehl's products (cleanser, moisturizer and once-a-week the rare earth facial mask).

I'm thinking of possibly FotoFacial or a peel but are there any products that are good for this?

A lot of products that you're using are made for opening pores. Now I dont want to suggest toning down your facial care too much, you made need it for acne or something else, but try about once a week washing your face with a facial cleanser, just one, with hot water, repeat with about three handfuls of water, and afterwards, splash your face with cold water to close the pores.Afterwards from that, pat your face with a dry towel and apply a hydrocortizone creme to remove redness, just a little cream though, dont dab it on, rub a little dabble in oyur hands and apply to your face.

You mentioned Kiehl's products so you must know about their Blue Herbal Astringent. I live on that stuff. I splash it on after shaving or washing with a cleanser, but before moisturizing. I haven't found another astringent/aftershave/etc. that does a better job of tightening up pores, and reducing their size. If you haven't tried it yet, give it a shot.

Yeah.. Kiehl's Blue Herbal Astringent is definitely a good product for oily skin... but if your skin is a bit sensitive, you might want to try Kiehl's Men's Alcohol-Free Herbal Toner.. this stuff works well too....
