I love pore strips! Do you guys use them too? I use it once a week, after a hot shower. After a long week at work, I know that my skin needs some deep down cleansing. And that doesn't really happen when I just wash my face with cleanser. That's what pores strips are good for.
After I shower, all my pores are open, it is the best time to apply the strips. I leave it on until it is extremely hard. If you don't leave it long enough, it doesn't work. When you remove it, you can see how clogged your pores were. Then I wash my face with cold water (to close pores) and follow up with toner, too really clean and close them.
That's my weekly pore cleaning regimen! When I do this every week, my pores are not really visible. You can see a difference even after the first time!
