Ways To Shrink Pores
Do you have open pores on your face? You must be obviously worried about them! However, don’t go in for skin care products claiming to shrink your pores as it is a big fat lie! The size of your pores is based on genes but there is something you can do to reduce their appearance.
Skin pores increase in size as you get older or when filled with impurities. Here is what you need to do to make the pores appear smaller in size. And don’t worry as it is all natural!
1) Clay masks
Clay masks are well known for their ability to pull out toxins and other harmful stuff from your skin. You should definitely apply a clay mask once in a week. What can be better than good old multani mitti or fuller’s earth? So, mom and dadi were right when they asked you to apply a multani mitti face pack every week!
Once the clay dries up naturally on your skin, you can remoisten it with a warm washcloth. This way the clay will not dry your skin out. You can add a bit of chandan (sandalwood) and turmeric to the face pack too but please ensure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. You can even do a patch test before going ahead.
2) Fruit acid masks
Fruit acids masks are also helpful in renewing your skin and getting rid of impurities that lead to open pores. However, they can be a costly affair. So, here is how you can make fruit acid masks all by yourself from natural ingredients at home.
You need fruit acid so it is better to choose fruits that have more acid like citrus fruits and berries. Take half a strawberry, one slice of tomato, two pieces of grapes and mash them all in a ceramic bowl. To that add one teaspoon of milk powder and some water. Apply this to your face and wash it off after 30 seconds as it can irritate skin otherwise. Make sure that you do a patch test before applying it on your face and not exceed 30 seconds as this mask has fruit acids.
3) Lymph drainage
With regular lymph drainage, you skin will turn clear, bright and free of blackheads. When facial circulation is not proper, it can lead to clogged pores and not many know about it. You should give yourself a facial massage at least once or twice a week for proper lymph drainage. It is free of cost and will take only a few minutes of your time.
4) Switch to products that don’t clog pores
Coconut oil and thick balms are a no-no for certain skin types as they are comedogenic or in simple terms ‘pore-clogging’. Search for skincare products that say that they are light and non-comedogenic.
Follow the above habits to shrink pores and they will appear as if they have reduced in size even when they actually haven’t. Remove makeup before going to bed and let your skin breathe!
