How To Reduce Your Facial Pores When You Are Short Of Time

I know I don't usually talk about such a topic but when I met up with a group of female friends recently and they brought this up, I thought why not do some research and then blog about it?

I think nowadays, even males are interested. Especially metrosexual males.

And like it or not, more and more men are interested in taking care of their skin. They are using skin care products like never before. Some of my female friends are jealous when they found out that their male friends have better looking skin than them!

Since there are already so many ads from skin care companies, I won't touch on which products that can reduce those unsightly pores on your face. Not unless they pay me.

I rather go for the natural way, with no chemicals from products that promise miraculous claims.

Here's what I discovered...

It seems that large skin pores are usually usually genetic and inherited, but oily skin also causes skin pores to enlarge because of excess sebum production. Nothing much can be done (Oh NO!!) but... there are steps to take to reduce the size of the pores temporarily.

Of course, if your face is oily, the obvious thing to do is always keep it clean and wipe off excess oil regularly. Gentle face scrubbers and facepacks help tone up the size of the pores.

Here's a few methods to reduce pores naturally using natural ingredients.

1.Tomato juice applied on skin with cotton ball and left on face for 20 mins. Wash off with lukewarm water.

2.Mashed papaya applied on face for a few minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water.

3.Whipped egg yolk with few drops of lemon juice applied on face and left on for a few minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water.

4.Honey with a little lemon juice and sugar applied on face and left for a few minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

Anyone can do the above. It's easy and hassle free. But what if you don't have tomatoes or papayas or eggs or lemon juice at hand BUT you need to go out on a date in half an hour's time?

Here's the remedy ...Just wrap some ice cubes in a cotton cloth and rub the cloth on your face. This works because ice shrinks the size of the pores temporarily and can decrease oil production for some time.

Now dear readers, do give it a try and let me know if any of these methods work for you.

For more info, do check out this website where I got my information from.
