Who doesn’t have large pores? It’s not just a bane of those with oily skin, even with an oily T-zone, you could be prone to it. Sometimes these crater-like pores gather dust and grime and make the skin on your face look uneven and lack luster. No matter how hard you try, these pores, far from shrinking and disappearing, are easily noticeable to anyone who talks to you from a closer proximity.
Cosmetics for tightening pores are not half as effective, as you may have already realised over the years. Pores just come back and stay there. But there is a home remedy which is the only answer to shutting gigantic pores forever. Just like magic.
Only a couple of ingredients are enough to bid goodbye to large pores, but we list a few more for good measure.
1. Egg white and lemon juice
Take two egg whites and add a couple of drops of lemon juice in a cup. Make a thick paste of it and apply it to your face, mostly the affected areas. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse your face with cool water. The mask helps remove dead skin cells, extra oil and tightens skin pores.
2. Water and baking soda
This is a magical combination to make pores disappear. Mix in a cup 2 tbsp of water and baking soda each. Apply it to your face and leave it on for about 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. Its a great agent to tighten skin pores.
3. Tomato and lemon juice
Puree two fresh tomatoes, add to it a few drops of lemon juice. Make a thick paste and apply this on your face, particularly the affected areas. Let it dry for about 15 to 20 minutes. Wash off the pack with cool water. Owing to the acid in the tomato and lemon, the oil from the face gets removed leading to a healthy pores-free skin.
4. Rosewater, cucumber and lemon
This is a potent combination in eliminating large pores from your skin. Peel the cucumber and retain its fleshy part. Add to it a tsp of rose water and 3-4 drops of lemon juice. Spread out the mixture on a light, flimsy cloth, and gradually apply it to your whole face. Keep it on for about 15 minutes until it dries up and then wash it off with cool water. Your face will feel soft and supple, and those large pores would have shrunk.
5. Pineapple and lemon juice
Take 2 tbsp of pineapple juice in cup and mix a few drops of lemon juice in it. Drench a light cloth into the mix and put it on your face. Allow it to seep in for about 10 minutes. Rinse off your face with cool water. Rich in enzymes, the pineapple is a great remedy to make large pores disappear by tightening the skin. The lemon juice, in addition to that, acts as an astringent due to its acidity.
6. Almond and lemon juice
Soak up a few almonds in water overnight. Next morning, grind the almonds into a fine paste. Add to it a tsp of lemon juice. Blend it nicely. Apply the almond-lemon pack on your face and leave it on for about 20-25 minutes. Further on, rinse off your face with cool water. You face will feel soft and the pores less coarse.
