As much as I try to embrace my skin’s natural texture, there’s one aspect of it I just can’t accept: my large pores because unlike stress zits, we’re stuck with our pores forever.
Here’s a fact: Pores are a structural part of your skin that cannot, under any circumstance, be removed. They can, however, get wider and deeper if they’re constantly clogged, or if you squeeze them all the time.
The good news is that although your base pore size is genetically determined, you can minimize their appearance and effectively shrink them back to their normal, pre-stretched state with the right treatments.
The first step to resolving nose pores is to make sure they’re clean. Oil, dirt, and makeup can lead to clogged nose pores.
Your first step to unclogging nose pores is to make sure they’re cosmetic-free before going to bed. You should also remove makeup before washing your face to make sure the cleanser can work in your nose pores more effectively.
Oily skin is served best with a gentle cleanser that’s either gel- or cream-based. These will help to clean out nose pores without irritating them, thereby making them even more noticeable.
Despite keeping your nose pores clean, genes, environment, and your skin type may still make them more noticeable. Consider the following treatments that may help your nose pores appear smaller. (Note that it can take a few weeks or longer to see full results.)
Here’s the Facial Mask That Works Effectively on My Pores
① First, cut the fresh aloe vera leaf (about 2 inches) and extract the gel. Just cut both sides and slide the knife right under the aloe vera (on top of the gel) and do the same at the bottom part.
② Next, place the gel in the blender and blend. Set aside.
③ In a separate bowl, place 3 tbsp of flour, add 1 tbsp of milk, 2 or 3 tbsp of aloe vera gel and 1 tbsp of lemon juice.
④ Now, mix them all together, making sure to get all the lumps out until you’ll come up with a paste-like consistency.
⑤ Apply the mixture on your freshly wash/cleanse face using a brush. Don’t forget to apply also on your neck or decollete area.
⑥ Let it sit for 30 minutes. you can store the left over in the fridge and use it within 3 days.
⑦ Rinse your face with warm water and then splash your face with cold water or run an ice cube on your face. You can do this routine 3x a week for best results.
