The Secret to Perfect Glass Skin: Etude House Wonder Pore

What is the secret to having clear, pore-less, translucent, and bright skin? 

As someone whom suffered severely from Cystic acne and oily skin during puberty, I was constantly seeking an answer to the question above. Since cystic acne is embedded under the skin, its highly difficult to get rid of, therefore I tried almost all methods under the sun, to find a way to combat it. 
From paying a visit to the dermatologist, to treating myself to weekly Yonka facials, nothing seemed to deliver the results I was looking for. 

Fast Forward to 2018 puberty is finally over, however the aftermath is not so appealing. With acne, comes scaring, and enlarged pores. Thank goodness I'm acne free, but how could I minimize my pores, smooth my skin, fade scaring, as well as keep oil at bay? Luckily I found a easy, 5 step, and reasonable cure--Wonder Pore from Etude House!
