It depends on how big pores are. As an advice I get from a Derma Clinic, we should wash our face with warm water. Warm water opens our pores. We can use facial wash to clean our face and facial scrub could clean our face when we use it weekly, or once a week. A facial wash could clean our face. There are cleaning creams that could clog our pores. Actually, even the make up remover that are creams could clog our pores. The right way to do is to use warm water first, wash our face with facial wash, not soap since it could only lead to drying and then we will wash our face with cold water to close the pores. After that, we should use a toner to lessen the size of the pores. It could help to close the pores. We can apply moisturizer after that. If we are tired we use creams to clean our face but it is not always helping to clean our face alone.
