Dubai: Open pores are a common problem faced by most girls due to makeup, dirt, and dust. These open pores are majorly found around the nose and cheeks. Hiding the open pores with makeup all the time is neither possible nor good for the face skin. Use ice cubes, cleansers containing ingredients like geranium, chamomile, and witch hazel to lessen the appearance of the pores.
Celebrity make-up artist and skincare expert Caroline Frazer helps to banish beauty myths about pesky enlarged pores, reports femalefirst.co.uk. Products or DIY remedies such as an ice cube used on the face can help lessen the appearance of open or enlarged pores but only for a very short while enlarged pores won’t disappear or shrink overnight. However, there are things you can do to make them look less visible, said Frazer.
Get Rid of Large Pores Naturally
Here are the tips one can follow:
Most people who have larger pores have greasier skin. Look out for cleansers that will help de-clog the pores which contain ingredients such as geranium, chamomile, and witch hazel to clarify and refresh skin and help visibly reduce the size of pores.
This helps reduce the dead skin cells which can get stuck in the pores. It will also help lessen the oil on the skin, which can make the pores look bigger.
* One can also try pore strips to help unblock the hard-to-shift areas on the nose etc.
* Exfoliation, using a mask, and staying hydrated also helps.
Exfoliating on a regular basis will definitely give the appearance of shrinking pores. If one is routinely getting off the dead skin cells, which get clogged in the pores, the pores will avoid getting stretched out daily. If one wants to splurge, try a sonic face brush to help with the exfoliating.
Masks with Kaolin clay in them are great for those with large and clogged pores. One needs to use them once or twice a week for noticeable benefits.
Drink plenty of water to keep oneself hydrated, which will enhance the appearance of the skin, reduce pore size, and help flush out toxins from the body.
* Microdermabrasion can really help when it comes to treating open pores with the sort of intensity guaranteed to keep unwanted attacks of acne and spots at bay.
