How to Eliminate Open Pores from the Skin in only 3 Days

The small dots on the skin’s surface are openings of the hair follicles. Each has a sebaceous gland which is in charge for the production of oil.

Sebaceous Glands

These glands are bigger on the nose and forehead so the pores are more visible in these areas than in others. The size of the pores is conditioned by the genes, i.e. fair-skinned people usually have smaller pores whereas those who have a darker skin have bigger pores. Skin type also plays its role, i.e. a dry skin is less prone to pores than an oily one.

The size of the pores can increase due to a pimple and loss of collagen due to aging is also known to increase the visibility of pores. UV rays can weaken the collagen and increase the size of the pores. Pimple extraction can permanently widen the pores.

How to Reduce the Visibility of Pores

According to an eminent dermatologist from New York, Heidi Waldorf, we need to wash the face before going to bed to cleanse it from makeup and accumulated dirt. Washing the face after a workout is also crucial since sweat carries debris to the pore openings and creates a perfect surrounding for bacteria.

Exfoliation is essential since it eliminates dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. You should exfoliate the skin on a daily basis whereas those with sensitive skin need to exfoliate it one to three times per week.

Homemade Treatment for Elimination of Pores

First step

You will need:

2 cups of water

5 tbsp of organic apple cider vinegar

Preparation and application:

Mix the two ingredients in a spray bottle. Next, wash the face and then close the eyes and spray the whole face with the solution. Wait for it to dry and then apply coconut oil all over.

Apple cider vinegar will balance the skin’s pH, prevent infections, and lower the occurrence of pores.

Second step

You will need:

One egg white

2 tbsp of organic lemon juice

2 tbsp of oatmeal

Preparation and application:

Mix the ingredients well to make a paste and then apply it onto the whole face. Leave it for 30 minutes before rinsing it off.

Egg whites have protein and collage which fight off wrinkles, skin inflammation, and fine lines. They better the skin elasticity as well which in turn shrinks the pores.

Third step

You will need:

Aloe vera gel

Application: Apply the gel onto the face before going to bed. In the morning, you need to rinse off the face.

When topically applied, aloe vera gel makes the skin more elastic and betters the production of collagen. Moreover, it will clean the skin from oils and dirt in the pores and thus, rejuvenate the skin and boost its natural glow.
