As a very common skin problem, large pores attract other skin issues too—like acne and blackheads, more so in people with an oily skin. Now if you’re wondering what causes enlarged pores, then friends let us tell you that excess sebum, dirt, and bacteria accumulated in the skin are the main culprits here.
Though there are quite a few products in the market that will help you deal with this problem, retorting to home remedies can ensure that your skin is not getting exposed to harsh chemicals, which can make your enlarged pores seem larger.
Fortunately, there are very potent natural methods to close large pores and prevent them from appearing again. Let’s take a look
1. Tomato juice and lemon juice
Make a puree from two tomatoes and then add few drops of lemon juice. Mix the content until you get a homogeneous paste which you need to apply to the pores. Leave it for 20 minutes and then rinse the face.
2. Egg white and lemon juice
Mix two egg whites and a bit of lemon juice to get a thick paste. Apply it onto your face and leave it for 20 minutes. Then, rinse your face.
3. Lemon juice and almonds
Leave couple of almonds in water overnight to soak. In the morning, grind them and make a paste. Add a tsp of lemon juice and mix the content well. Apply the mask onto your face and leave it for 20 minutes. In the end, rinse the face with lukewarm water.
4. Pineapple and lemon juice
Mix 2 tbsp of pineapple juice and few drops of lemon juice. Then, take a clean cloth and soak it in the mixture and then spread it onto the face. Leave it for 10 minutes and then remove the cloth and rinse the face.
