You know when the dishwasher is running, and then after the washing stage, it enters a "drying" stage?  Well, when it reaches the drying stage, just open the dishwasher and stick your face in there--all that steam will help open up your pores so then you can put on a mask or do some other spa-like treatment Smiley  This happened quite by accident since I thought it was done, but sometimes I just do it for fun.  It's kinda crafty I guess, but for some reason it reminded me of the whole using-glue-as-pore-strips thing. 
Ok, it may sound silly, but it works for me!  And, um, I'm not really obsessed with pores.  Honest.  Anyway, give it a try folks  Cheesy

Ha ha. I'm obsessed with pores in the oddest way to. I love the Biore strips (although they are bad for you) because I can gaze at the gunk they took out.  And I love doing little steaming sessions in my bathroom with Camomile tea or pepperment tea. My boyfriend thinks I'm crazy... Cheesy I often thought about the steaming thing whenever I opended up my dishwasher (when I had one! Cry) It is fun.. steam is fun! okay and now I'm being carted away to crazy town.. the things I think about at work...

OMG, Biore strips are bad for you...lol, I'm not a ditz at all.

Well, at least I've only used them a couple times about three years ago. They are so neat though.

Or you can boil potatoes, open up the pot & let the steam hit your face. I learned that one kind-of by accident. :]

i used to be addicted to those strips. i used them about every three days.. and i still do it all the time. but not nearly as bad. i'm always sticking my face over pasta, broccoli, the dishwasher..

haha you guys are too funny! i am a little pore crazy too..i never really enjoyed the steam dishwasher thing..my dad always reminded me that it smelled like dirty pots from his first job when he worked at Disney (nearly every floridian has worked there at one point..its crazy)..so i don't think i enjoy it as much as you all do! Cheesy but i like leaning my face over pasta and brocolli! Grin

Sounds a great idea - I LOVE steaming. Even after I wash my face, I run boiling water over my face washer, then hold it lightly up to my face, dab it a little, then splash with cold.

Just a "warning" about the dishwasher though; if as I assume) you're using chemical detergents in the dishwasher, this will get into your skin, as it isn't all washed away. The broccoli and potato steaming ideas are probably better, because whatever's in the vegetables will be, if anything, good for your skin.

Good steaming to you all!

 Huh why are biore strips bad for you? (i'm probably pretty ditzy sounding to you all)
