People who have oily skin usually also have big and visible pores. Also, they usually hate these pores and try to make them less visible and shrink them.
There are numerous products on the market that tighten the skin and that reduce the appearance of the large pores, but these products are usually over the counter. The good news is that you can now prepare your own natural remedies in your own home and eliminate the problem.
Here is what you should do:
Water and Baking Soda
Mix two tablespoons of baking soda and two tablespoons of water and mix well. You will get a paste which you should then apply onto your face and let it dry for about fifteen minutes. Once the mask tightens, wash your face with cool water.
There are other remedies as well that are also very efficient. The advantages of these remedies are that they are all natural and can be made of only 2-3 natural ingredients really quickly. Here are the recipes:
Egg White and Lemon juice
You can make a natural face mask using a few drops of lemon juice and two egg whites. Once you make the mask, apply it to your face and wait for several minutes until it dries. Then, wash your face with cold water. Not only will this mask help you tighten the pores on your skin, but it will also help you eliminate the dead skin cells and the oil from your skin.
Almond and Lime juice
Take several almonds and put them in a small container with water. Leave the almonds overnight so that they soak the water. The next morning, mash them and make an almond paste. Add a teaspoon of lime juice to the paste and apply it onto your face. After 30 minutes, wash your face with cold water.
Tomato and Lime juice
Make a mixture from a little tomato juice and 2-4 drops of lime juice. Take a cotton ball and soak it into the liquid mixture, and then apply the mixture to your face, letting it stay on for fifteen minutes. In the end, rinse your face with cold water.
The acid from the lime and the tomatoes will help you remove the oil from your face, because these ingredients have astringent properties. This treatment is also useful for tightening your skin and closing your pores.
Lemon and Pineapple Juice
Take a half lemon and squeeze the juice out of it. Then, add half a cup of pineapple juice to the lemon juice and mix well. Next, take a clean cloth and soak it in the mixture, and place it on your face, letting it stay for five minutes. In the end, wash your face with cool water.
Pineapple contains enzymes that help in skin cleansing and tightening. Moreover, it has even better effects when combined with the astringent effect of the acid in the lemon juice.
Cucumber, Lemon and Rosewater
Peel a cucumber and crush its flesh. Then, add several drops of lemon juice and a teaspoon of rosewater to the cucumber to get a mixture. Next, take a clean cloth and put the mixture in it, fold the cloth and apply it to your face. After a while, wash your face with cool water.
