The market is saturated with a bunch of blackhead-obliterating solutions and products which claim to do almost everything from shrinking pores size and to make pores basically vanish, what is truly achievable? Is it possible to literally shrink pores or simply get them to appear minuscule? What causes them to look bigger?

“Pores can maximize in size as a result of sun exposure, since you destroy the collagen and elastic tissue which often is the structural support for the skin. Devoid of the support, the pore become larger or increase in size.”

The bad news is, you can’t literally shrink the size of your pores (blame it to your genes). But on the other hand, keeping your face thoroughly clean with clogged pores under control, it’s likely that nobody could tell how large they actually look like.

The most basic do-it-yourself recipes are effective in reducing the oil, bacteria and layer of dirt that leave perhaps even the tiny pores appear large and hideous. Ridding yourself of blackheads – that happen to be basically the clogged pores – has never been so simple, inexpensive and all natural.

And by using the honey which is known to be a great humectant, I could guarantee your skin won’t wither, particularly the temperatures begin to rise. Honey additionally open up the pores making sure that these natural acids can sweep in and extensively clean up your face.
Do-it-yourself solutions and fuss-free products have been proven helpful for several years, and we learn certain ideal routines to adhere to for quick, DIY skin soothers like the recipes below:

Pore Minimizer scrub Recipe:

  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 drops lemon juice

Mix all the ingredients and start using this scrub on the affected area every other day for 3 – 5 minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm or tepid water and apply the Apple Cider toner/astringent. (Check the recipe below).

Skin care:

  • Cleanse. Properly. The key to keeping pores in check is making sure they’re clean. The dirtier they are, the more visible they are. Use something gentle, so as to thoroughly clean but not to overstimulate.
  • Exfoliate at least 2-3 times a week. Too much can aggravate the pores and make them produce more oil. Something with light amounts of AHAs or salicylic acid is good, (although can be drying – see what suits your skin best), or a gentle cleanser/scrub combo might be the way to go.
  • After cleansing, TONE. Definitely tone. So important. This “closes” the pore and tightens it without drying it out. Check the Toner recipe below.
  • Moisturize and use sun protection; UV damage can further enlarge pores. And you, know cause cancer and stuff.
  • Apply masks that draw out impurities (things like sunscreen, makeup and grime can clog pores and make them more visible) should be a weekly routine .


Apple Cider Astringent/Toner Recipe:
Grab a clean container with a cap if possible and add these ingredients…

  • 1/2 cup of purified water
  • 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • Few drops of your favorite essential oils – (this is optional to get past the apple cider vinegar’s smell)
  • For extra power, add a few squeeze of lemon

Combine all ingredients and simply shake the mixture and use a cotton ball for application. You can place this toner in the fridge for future use. Apple cider vinegar is anti-bacterial and helps dry up excess sebum, removing dirt and debris from your pores. It also balances your skin’s pH level.

    and your views are nice in support of new users.

  2. Calleigh says

    yes, it’s fine to apply tinted moisturizer after your toner application, but let the toner set for a couple of minutes first so your skin absorbed it.

    Please tell me the remedy———my eyes and around the lips very much sweating in summer, so I can’t makeup my face properly. Around the EYES and Around the LIPS much much sweating, what is the remedy??????????????

  4. Calleigh says

    It’s an awesome antioxidant, but it’s heavy, so if you are prone to break outs, it could make you break out more.

    Is honey helpful 4 oily skin. As my skin is very oily . N lemon doesnt suit my skin tone coz ive got a vry sensitive skin . Pls suggest smthng which is applicable n safe 4 an oily skin . Thank u

  6. Calleigh says

    I guess you have sensitive skin, the redness might be caused by lemon. Try minimizing the amount of lemon and add more honey or yogurt to offset the acidity. But if this doesn’t help, this trick isnt for you.

    I cant really give my opinion since I don’t know exactly about your case. If those are regular pimples, you should re-evaluate your eating habits to start with. Acne/pimples are triggered by different factors and each body reacts differently. No matter how you treat your pimples, if you don’t treat the main cause, they will keep on coming back.

    Hi Calleigh,
    All your tips are very good and effective, tnx a lot.

  13. Calleigh says

    If you have oily skin like me, I would prefer to use a toner with ACV. This is really good in balancing your skin Ph. What to do is mix 1:1 ratio of your homemade rose water and ACV.

  15. Calleigh says

    @Gulshan Ara,
    If your skin is not sensitive, just keep on rubbing lemon wedges on the affected area on regular basis. Soon, the freckles will fade out.

  16. Calleigh says

    @Genevive de leon,
    There was no carrier oil being mentioned on the ingredients, so your question about using olive oil instead confused me.
