Large, clogged pores are a beauty concern for many and can also contribute to problems like acne and blackheads, so it’s important to clean them often.
Regular exfoliation of your skin will remove dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other impurities that lead to clogged pores.
Just remember that pores are a natural part of your skin and cannot be completely eliminated. But, you can try some inexpensive, easy and natural home remedies to minimize the appearance of open pores.
4 All-Natural Face Scrubs to Reduce Pore Size
Homemade face scrubs are a simple beauty recipe with countless variations, and they can be incredibly moisturizing and exfoliating to the skin. They also remove excess oil and impurities.
Sugar + Green Tea + Honey
1. Put a few teaspoons of cooled green tea in a bowl. Add one tablespoon of sugar and one tablespoon of honey.
2. Apply the scrub to a clean face. Gently massage for five minutes in a circular motion to exfoliate. Rinse your skin with cool water and apply moisturizer.
Sugar + Aloe + Cucumber
Mix equal parts of cucumber pulp, fresh raw aloe juice (extracted from the leaf), and brown sugar. Scrub skin with the mixture and rinse well.
Sugar + Olive Oil + Lemon Juice
Mix two tablespoons of sugar, one tablespoon of olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice. Gently massage your skin for 20 to 30 seconds, and then rinse it off with cool water. Use it regularly, once or twice a week.
Sugar + Lemon Wedge
Put a little sugar on a lemon wedge and gently rub it on your face. Leave it on for 10 minutes, and then wash your face. Do this two times a week at least for a few weeks.
Tip: Apply these masks on clean, make-up free skin, always.
