Facial Pores are a girl’s biggest nightmare. While the pimples and blemishes fade away with time, facial pores don’t cease to exist and therefore make us uncomfortable about our looks. Here are a few home remedies that will help us to get rid of facial pores and restore our flawless skin back.
1) Wash Your Face On Regular Intervals
Pores enlarge when clogged with dirt, oil, or bacteria causing them to become inflamed. Washing your face regularly will keep your skin hydrated thus reducing the appearance of pores. Be careful not to over wash.
2) Apply Ice Cubes On Your Face
Place the ice cubes gently along your pores for 15-30 seconds. This will have a tightening effect on your skin thus making our pores smaller with time.
3) Make A Baking Soda Paste
Mix equal parts of baking soda and warm water (2 tablespoons each) into a paste. Using a circular motion, massage the paste into pores gently for about 30 seconds. Rinse it off using cool water. Use this regimen as a part of your normal face washing routine, every night for 5-7 days. After a week of use, reduce the regimen to 3-5 times per week.
4) Drench A Washcloth In Lemon And Pineapple
Place the washcloth firmly on your face for one minute. Then rinse your skin with warm water. Lemon and pineapple juice contain natural enzymes that tighten and firm the face while also purifying and brightening the skin. If you have sensitive skin, use moisturizer before hand just to make sure that citrus doesn’t harm your skin.
5) Use a light scrub
A scrub, as opposed to a wash, usually contains very small beads or other massaging implements that assist in unclogging pores. If you’re going to use a scrub instead of a wash, leave it at that. Don’t wash your face afterwards. Make sure you don’t over wash as it can cause irritation and redness.
6) Try A Yogurt Mask
Apply a thin layer of plain yogurt over face and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Longer than 10 minutes can irritate the skin. Use the mask only about once a week. As with most masks, less is often more, so don’t be tricked into thinking you need to constantly be exfoliating.
7) Eat Healthy
Eat a diet rich in lean proteins, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids. Drink plenty of water instead of sugary, caffeine-laden drinks. Get plenty of vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin B. Vitamin C can help minimize lines, scars and wrinkles. Avoid using excessive milk and dairy, which have hormones that make acne worse.
