Can retinoids shrink pores?

Topical retinoids are usually the top choice for tackling any sort of pore concern, since their smaller molecular structure allows them to get inside the pore and clean it out. Retinoids also shrink oil glands, which can make the pores look smaller. But can they really change the diameter of poes that drastically? "Pore size is genetically determined, and it is very difficult to change it. It's like trying to change your hand size or eye color," expalins Eagan, MN, dermatologist Charles E. Crutchfield, MD. "But retinoids are exceptional at unplugging and eliminating a lot of the trapped materials like dirt, oil, and dead skin cells inside porse, what makes them appear smaller, although the size of them is not really altered."
