3 Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Open Pores On Face Permanently

Pores in our skin is where hair follicles and sebaceous gland which produces sebum is found. We all have open pores and it is necessary for the oil and hair follicle to surface. It becomes a problem only when there is excessive oil production.

What Are Open Pores?

When we don’t remove the excessive oil build up, the excessive oil build up makes the pores look visibly larger and it is this condition that we call open pores. If left untreated may lead to blackheads and white heads.

What Causes Open Pores?

It might be genetics, hormonal changes, poor skin care routine and stress also can contribute to changes in our skin texture. If you are genetically prone to oily skin or lead a highly stressful life it is so common to suffer from enlarged pores. We can easily avoid it if we regularly follow a skin care routine. You can off course buy store bought products for your skin care routine. But I prefer to make my own as it is cheap and I also know what goes into it.

Open Pores Treatments:

If you are suffering from large pores, first we have to remove the excessive oil from our pores, I do it in three steps. First is a scrub using orange juice and sugar, the scrub gently removes the excessive oil gently. But try to use only castor sugar, if you use regular sugar it will cause skin irritation. The second is a homemade toner using apple cider vinegar, apple cider vinegar helps remove any left over sebum left by the scrub. Finally the last step is a face pack using egg white, the egg white mask tightens the pores and after this treatment you will see good improvement. I would suggest doing this treatment weekly once to remove and prevent excessive oil build up………
