Large pores can look unsightly, making you feel embarrassed from your skin. They also make people more likely to get acne and blackheads, especially for ones who have greasy skin. Let’s know about factors that enlarge pores on the face and what can we do to treat this flaw.
Exposure to the sun for long periods of time can cause enlarged open pores. Excess sebum production is also a main reason. This excess oil mixes with dead skin cells in a pore to form a clog, the thing that makes it difficult for the oil to flow freely and causes the pore itself to widen to offer extra space for the oil to flow out.
Here are some solutions to minimize enlarged pores using natural remedies:
1- Yogurt Mask
The lactic acid in yogurt can stop excess oil production, dissolve impurities in pores and tighten them. Apply some fresh yogurt, neither sweetened nor flavored, for only 10 minutes then rinse your face with cool water.
2- Tomato Lotion
Tomatoes are widely known for their outstanding antioxidant content and lycopene. These properties help to tighten skin and minimize large open skin pores. Mix one tablespoon of fresh tomato juice with 3-4 drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Apply this lotion on your face for about 15 minutes then rinse it off with cool water. This lotion is also considered a powerful cleanser for skin.
3- Egg Whites Mask
Egg whites are also widely used to shrink enlarged pores because they tone and tighten the skin. Whisk two egg whites with juice of half a lemon. Spread it on your face using your fingertips and leave it on until it dries completely then rinse it off with cool water. Repeat this remedy two times a week for 1 month.
Do not forget to apply any remedy to clean, washed skin.
