Get Rid of Open Pores Naturally

Why get a chemical face peel and waste money on pore shrinking products when you probably have everything you need right at home? Glycolic acid peels can damage skin, but a gentle mask of oatmeal and tomato will not only heal skin but cleanse and shrink pores naturally! You don’t even need to buy face peels to use at home. Shrinking your pores can be done naturally with ingredients as common as honey, sugar and lemon, or oatmeal and egg whites.

Open pores are a problem amongst those who are aging and those who are prone to acne. They make your skin look and feel rough. Treating open pores also helps to treat troublesome acne and smooths out skin, evening the skin tone.

One of the most common reasons we get large, open pores is that we either clean too poorly or we go the other direction and clean too much and too roughly. Many ‘exfoliation’ products are as hard on the skin of our faces as sand paper! Making your own natural exfoliation products will always give the best, most gentle results.
