Brief Answer:
Tretinoin gel at night time

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for the pictures.
I have reviewed the pictures keenly and its good to see that you have very mild open pores and few blackheads.
Pores are actually natural outlets to drain the sebum (oil) produced in the skin. In people with oily skin these outlets are more widely open to drain sebum and are called open pores.
Since pores are part of your skin, they cannot be removed but with proper management one control the size of pore and thus can provide good cosmetic appearance.
For controlling pore size, I would suggest you application of tretinoin gel 0.04% daily at night time on regular basis.
Even this tretinoin gel will help in removing your blackheads.
Use salicyclic acid and glycolic acid based cleanser like AHAGLOW-S to thorroughly cleanse your pores and thus prevent new blackhead formation.
Avoid use of any oil based cosmetics on face.
Hope this will take care of your problem.
Let me know if you require any more assistance from myside.
Thank you
Dr Hardik Pitroda
