Do-It-Yourself Pore Minimizers

Shopping for the right product for your skin can sometimes be difficult if you aren’t allowed to try before you buy. To save money and the earth, try these homemade skin care remedies to tighten your pores.

To begin, you need to keep 4 things in mind –

  1. Keep Your Skin Clean – this means no going to bed without washing your face. Debris and oil are the prime contributors to large pores and not washing your face does not help.
  2. Exfoliate – Dead skin cells are part of the debris that clog your pores. Exfoliating removes these, so after washing, exfoliate your skin and THEN apply a mask to tighten your pores. (View our face exfoliators and peels)
  3. Wear Sunscreen – Sun damage increases the hardened skin on your face that contributes to large pores. The more sun damage you have, the larger your pores.
  4. Do A Mask Regularly – Masks are the difference between okay skin and great skin, so if you really want to see an improvement, add them to your routine. For more info, see our article, “Why You Need to Incorporate Masks & Peels”.

There are many different homemade masks that you can try, our advice – Try different masks to see which one works best for you. Everyone’s skin is different so no one mask will be great for everyone.

Simple Masks –

– Mix an apricot and tomato together to make a fine paste. Apply to face and leave on for 15-20 min.

– For normal skin – beat an egg, apply to face and let dry. For oily skin – Mix an egg white with lemon juice and apply to face

– Soak almonds in water for 3-4 hours. Mash soaked almonds into a paste and mix with a teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply to face and let dry.

– Place 2 tsp of baking soda in your hand and add enough water to make a paste. Massage the paste on your face for 30 sec and wash off. You will see an immediate result, but best results are seen with continued use over a week’s time.

The following mask is a bit more complicated to make, but may work better for your skin with longer results.

Gelatin Mask –

  1. Mix 1 Tbsp of gelatin with 1 1/2 tsp of milk in a bowl and microwave for 10 sec.
  2. Brush the mixture on your face, paying special attention to the affected areas.
  3. Let dry for 10-15 min. The mask will feel tight after drying.
  4. Peel the mask from your face and what was in your pores will now be stuck to the gelatin mask. To close pores and prevent them from filling with dirt again, splash face with cold water.

There are numerous articles on homemade masks, but these seem to be the top rated. Try a few and see what works for you, but the key is to BE CONSISTENT with taking care of your face to minimize your pores.
