Pores expand and collect gunk, the older you get the more likely they are to stay enlarged. Slim them down by using a facial cleanser with salicylic acid. It will help to remove dead skin that can clog pores. This will allow the pores to breath and tighten up. Just remember to lay off the salicylic acid wash 1 week before waxing. It can cause sensitivity to the skin and lead to burning or tearing of the skin during the waxing process.
