Are you searching for a way to reduce your pores? Join the club. Large pores are the source of anguish for many individuals, and often contribute to many individuals acne outbreaks. Why? Because acne and pimples occur when the pore walls stick together with trapped sebum and result in bacteria formation. For individuals with big pores, it takes a lot of trapped sebum and bacteria to develop in order for the pore walls to stick. However, when they stick, because the pores are so large, they result in large, tender, pimple and bumps forming underneath the skins surface.  How can you get rid of your big pores? It will take some times, and it may not eliminate the visibility of your pores entirely, but you can shrink them somewhat. Follow the steps below:

1)       Steam Your Face.  Steaming your face will open your pores and unplug them. Simply fill a basin with extra warm water. Make sure the water is not scalding hot. Hold your face over the basin for 1-3 minutes.  Then, grab a washcloth and drench it in lemon and pineapple juice. Place the washcloth firmly on your face for 1 minute. Then rinse your skin with warm water. Lemon and pineapple juice contain natural enzymes that tighten and firm the face and purify and brighten the skin. Lemon particularly has the ability to cleanse and shrink the appearance of pores. You can purchase lemon juice and pineapple juice from your local grocer. Lastly, apply ice cubes to your face. Place the ice cubes gently along your pores for 15-30 seconds. This will have a tightening effect on your skin.

2)       Buy Pore-Refining Products.  Beauty 4 Ashes® and Zia® (wwwdrugstorecom) are two great all-natural skin care products who make acne and pore refining products. Beauty 4 Ashes ® Christian Health & Beauty makes a U Big Pore Baby System (wwwdiscoverb4acom) that in a double-blind study with 200 participants was chosen by 4 out of 5 over Neutrogenas Pore-Refining products. The participants preferred the product based on skin compatibility, results, fragrance, and skin appearance after immediate use. I personally looked at the system, and if do not feel like making your own pore-shrinking products, it contains several researched natural remedies that have been proven to reduce large pores, including sage, lemon, capsicum, sugar, and aloe.

3)       Make a Pore-Tightening Mask. Take Rhassoul Clay and mix with lemon juice, aloe vera juice, and green tea.  Rhassoul Clay tightens the pores and purifies the skin. Green Tea is a clinically researched, antioxidant packed and skin healing substance. Celestial Seasonings makes fabulous green tea that is full of vitamins and minerals and comes in many varieties.

4)       Eat More Citrus Fruits. Oranges produce firmer skin and rebuild collagen, which may contribute to increasing the elasticity of your skin and reducing your pore walls. Tangerines also have this effect.
