Hello beauties !
How you all have been doing? It has been a while since I last wrote on Wise She.
I swear this time of the semester is the most annoying, the busiest and the worst 🙁 Loaded with presentations to give, assignments to submit and study for my coming end sem exams, when do we engineering students get to breathe? â€“ never 😛 But still I am devoted to what I like the most 🙂
Today I will be throwing some light on one of the very common problems â€“ OPEN PORES. Every girl must be facing this problem along with everlasting acnes, blackheads, whiteheads â€“ as if they werenâ€™t enough and we are here cursed with another problem of open pores :-\
Pores are not all bad, in fact they are necessary for our skin as they are an essential pathway for the oil to reach our skin. There is oil gland, present at the bottom of the pore, which makes sebum to help keep the skin moisturized and protected. This makes our skin naturally soft and supple. But the problem arises when the poresâ€™ size increase. There could be various factors resulting in the increased size of the pores, such as oily skin, excess exposure to sunlight, ageing, etc.
Open pores could be tricky to handle and not everyone is aware of the right methods to tackle the situation of open pores effectively. As they are easily visible on the face, covering them with makeup will not solve the problem instead worsen it due to the presence of chemicals in the cosmetics. But this is a temporary solution, which according to me shouldnâ€™t even be considered as a solution because more than help it can ruin the existing condition. Now, switch on the natural and totally reliable methods to get rid of them 🙂
As I always say, there is no better way to cure any problem than doing it naturally. Lets get started on how you can reduce the size of pores and eventually can get rid of them.
TOMATO AND LEMON
Make a mixture by using tomato juice and a few drops of lemon. Apply the mixture over the open pores with cotton. Keep it on face for 20-25 minutes and wash the area with cold water.
The anti-oxidants in tomato and lemon cleanse the skin. Go for it, itâ€™s the simplest of all 😀
Use powdered orange peel which is very helpful in reducing open pores. The juice of peaches, papaya and pineapple is very good for the treatment pores as well. Apply the juice on face with cotton and wash it with cold water after 20 minutes.
HOT AND COLD THERAPY
Treat your skin with hot steam and let the dirt get flushed out from the skin. The heat of the steam will open the pores, and clean it. Clean your face with facecloth and pour some lemon juice over it, it will work like a bleaching agent and help in tightening up the pores.
Take juice of half lemon and apply to the pores with cotton, just before sleeping every night. The natural astringent of lemon will help close the pores and lighten blemishes. Those with sensitive skin can mix some water to the lemon juice, to avoid any side effects.
GETTING RID OF ACNE
Open pores can also lead to acne trouble. To avoid this happen, make a paste by putting a tablespoon of fenugreek (methi) powder with enough milk. Apply to your face and leave it to get dry for 20 minutes. Wash it with cold water and gently pat dry.
Daily repetition of this routine will help you get rid of acne and thus, open pores.
Hope you find it beneficial and try these at home 🙂
Have a happy week guys!
