Pores – Size Does Matter
Pores are tiny openings on your skin that help in the free movement of oil from your sebaceous glands to your skin. Small pores are quite the heroes in fact. They allow your skin to breathe and keep it moisturized. They also secrete a protective element called lipid mantle, which acts as a barrier between your skin and external, harmful agents.
It’s them large pores that turn out to be the villains. Large pores bring about excess oil secretion, which can, in turn, make your skin more prone to infections, inflammation, and acne. You can blame the existence of your large pores on your genes, your age, the exposure to the Sun and of course, your skin care routine. You must not let clogged pores exist because if you do, your pores will end up appearing way larger than they actually are.
But you know that if a problem exists, so does its antidote. And we’ve got this antidote right here for you. Check out the ways you can bid adieu to your pores.
How To Get Rid Of Pores If You’re 20-25
At this stage, your skin is younger and hence, easier to take care of. So if you start now, you will experience a visible decrease in the size of your pores in a much shorter span of time. Deep cleansing should be your aim, and you can make use of products such as creams, face masks and serums to control your sebum production. These will help in the removal of the dead skin cells, thereby narrowing your pores. However, cosmetic remedies can get very expensive, which is why you should try out home remedies instead.
Here’s a cleansing mask that you can use. It’s quite easy to make at home and pretty effective too, which means you get great results for minimal effort. For this mask, you will need
• cosmetic clay
• tea tree oil
•Freshly squeezed lemon juice
and mix them all of them
Take a bowl and add the cosmetic clay into it. Now mix in two-three drops of tea tree oil as well as one-two drops of jojoba oil. Add one teaspoon of lemon juice and half a teaspoon of lemon juice to this mixture. Make sure you mix the whole thing well.
Now, apply the mask to the clean skin and let it stay on for 15 minutes. Wash off after 15.
The clay in the mask will help in controlling sebum production as well as decreasing the size of the pores, while the tea tree oil will act as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent. The jojoba oil will regenerate new skin while the lemon juice will kill all bacteria.
