Pores in your skin secrete oil to help keep your skin hydrated, lubricated and healthy.
Most of the time, pores are too little to be viewed without a microscope.
However, pores are more prominent when they are dilated, infected, or clogged with oil, making them appear larger than they really are.
Fortunately, there are natural ways to reduce pore size that are more cost-effective and healthier than industrial solutions.
Here’s a list of 10 natural remedies for large pores.
These masks only contain the good stuff!
1. Honey, Lemon, Apple and Yogurt Mask
Best used at night. Mix one mashed apple with a tablespoon each of honey, lemon and yogurt.
Apply mixture on the face for 15-20 minutes and remove with warm water. Pat your face dry using a clean towel.
2. Almond Mask
Mix 1/3 of a cup of almonds in a blender until they form a powder. Add enough water to make a dough-like mixture. Apply on face for about 30 minutes and remove with lukewarm water.
3. Clay Mask
Clay meant for skincare can be purchased at your local natural health food store. Apply as a mask to your face, following the instructions on the package. This will draw out unwanted dirt and grease, reducing the size of pores in the process.
4. Cucumber, Apple And Egg Mask
Mix 1 egg white with 1 cucumber and 1 apple in a blender. Apply to face for 15 minutes. Remove with lukewarm water.
5. Lemon mask
Apply a small amount of lemon juice mixed with water to face using a cotton ball. Rinse face with cold water after 30 minutes.
