How to Shrink Pores Fast

Small pores allow your skin to remain tight, firm, vibrant, and look younger than your age. Minimize the appearance of enlarged pores and excessive oily sheen with Dr. Pickart's patented serum formulas for radiant skin care and a flawless complexion.

STEP 1: Select a copper peptide - Super GHK Copper Serum (for sensitive skin), Regular CP Serum (medium-strength), Super CP Serum (for skin prone to breakouts), or 3% GHK VIP Luxury Serum (for a quick "mattifying effect").

STEP 2: Select a hydroxy acid exfoliator. Use of hydroxy acid exfoliators (such as Exfol Serum or LacSal Serum) ensure that your pores are kept clear.

Below are our clients' top recommendations for what they've seen to work for reducing the appearance of enlarged pores.


1. Apply Super GHK-Copper Serum (mild), CP Serum (medium) or Super CP Serum (strong) as a thin layer in the morning.

Super CP Serum


CP Serum


Super GHK-Copper Serum









Exfoliate completely by applying a light layer of a hydroxy acid serum (Exfol Serum - 2% salicylic acid OR LacSal Serum - 10% hydroxy acid mix) in the evening. Both products contain salicylic acid which helps keep enlarged pores clean and clear.

LacSal Serum


Exfol Serum











Advanced Regimen

The strongest formulation of copper peptides on the market is Dr. Pickart's exclusive: 3% GHK VIP Luxury Serum which has a quick "mattifying effect" on the T-Zone areas. Help pores further by applying Balance Zone to help reduce excess oil in the morning, especially in areas of enlarged pores.

I know its rather early, but the morning after my second CP application, my husband, unprompted, told me my skin looked fantastic... He has no idea I am using Skin Biology products...This morning, after the 3rd application of CP Serum last night, my skin looked and felt a bit smoother... As I was putting my makeup on, I noticed my foundation wasn't sitting in my pores appeared smaller...I met a friend for lunch and she told me my skin looked luminous. I know...seems a bit soon to see change, but I do!

My skin texture and pores continue to refine even after two months of using Exfol Serum and copper peptides. Steam facials (add favorite herbs and citrus peels for added aromatherapy) also helped for deep cleansing and refinement of pores.

I have oily skin with large pores & have been using CP & Exfol Serums, Emu Oil or jojoba oil, & glycolic acid peels for about a year now. I've seen a definite difference in the size/appearance of my pores. They look smaller & are less noticeable.

I have had great results using Exfol, Super CP Serum & Emu Oil, supplemented by 10% Lactic Acid and 5% BHA. The pores on my nose are improving everyday... I think the exfoliation is revealing pores that weren't noticeable because the skin had grown partially over them. And if skin had partially occluded the pore, that must be the reason why you could leave the house looking just fine and the next time you looked in a mirror there would be a pimple. I could never understand how it happened so fast, but when I think about it, it’s almost like – how could you expect any other result. Those pores were ticking time bombs just sitting on ready waiting to mess up your world!

I have been using the Super Cop 2X on my enlarged pores on the nose (sparingly) and I have noticed in some of the areas they definitely appear to be smaller. I find it's great as my skin is oily and it doesn't make my nose any oilier either. Thank you so much !!!

Since I have been using Protect & Restore - for the last four months - as a morning make-up base, my skin is looking much firmer and the pores in my facial skin seem to be smaller. It is the best skin cream that I have used.

First I'd like to offer a cautiously optimistic testimonial--I think I'm on my way to being blemish-free for multiple days in a row! After that, maybe longer!! As per your suggestion of a few months back I've been using P&R #2 in the morning, then a hydroxy acid a few nights a week, alternating with Avita tretinoin cream... After two months my pores are noticeably smaller, and I'm getting fewer breakouts...

I tried your idea on skin pores and it worked! About five or six nights a week, I mixed the Exfol Cream and the Protect & Restore and applied them to the areas of the pores and over other areas of my face. I didn't pay too much attention to what happened but after three months of use, I had forgotten about the larger pores. When I finally remembered and looked for them, I could only find one of them and it was almost normal in size. This is really great!

I am amazed at how this stuff doesn't irritate my skin... and I swear my pore size has diminished heaps... Super Cop 2X is fantastic.

Pores & Oily Skin Issues

Oily skin which secretes large amounts of sebum has large pores while dry skin which lacks sufficient skin oil has small pores. Obviously, people want to reduce pore size, while not having excessively dry skin.

CP Serum, Hydroxy Acids, and Balance Zone:

Increased skin rejuvenation may help reduce the appearance of pore size since the firmer and thicker skin helps squeeze the pore downward and inward. Normally during aging, our skin becomes more thin and pores become more prominent. Oil-free skin serums such as CP Serum may further help as it helps supply nutritional copper to the skin. Other clients have also found the use of the product Balance Zone helpful.

If you have very sensitive skin, always start with our mildest copper peptide: Super GHK-Copper Serum. If you are prone to breakouts, use the oil-free serum versions of our products such as Super CP Serum (AM) and Exfol Serum (PM).


About every two weeks, use pore cleansing strips (available at most drugstores) on problem areas. But do not overuse these to the point of causing skin irritation. The new 3% GHK VIP Luxury Serum is an extremely effective product for keeping the pores beautifully tight and closed. After cleansing with a pore strip, apply 1 drop of VIP Luxury Serum to the area of enlarged pores.


Most clients with a enlarged pores will find that if they properly cleanse their skin and avoid the use of heavy oil or cream formulations, pores will remain clear and eventually tighten and shrink. See our page on Effective Hydroxy Acids and Cleansing Agents


Typical results take approximately 4-6 weeks of consistent use*. Call us first before discontinuing your regimen. We may have ideas on how you can improve your results.
