If you are like me, you have probably been searching for a solution to open pores forever. I have been annoyed and plagued by my pores for long enough! Finally i have found the solutions. I have been doing my research a lot lately and trying out loads of different natural methods and at long last i have found some that really work!
Im so happy to finally have nice smooth skin that makeup looks well on and now the makeup just glides over my pores so i feel really satisfied with my skin for once!
The first one i tried was quite simple actually, but so effective and quick! All you have to do is cut a tomato, like a cherry tomato, since you only need a little, in half. Then just rub it all over your clean skin. I just went around the whole face using circular motions in order to get right into the pores. You can immediately feel it going to work. They are full of antioxidants and contain lycopene. They also help in fighting cellular damage and reduce reddening of the skin. Leave it on for as long as you can, up to 15mins and wash off with cool water. I can only leave mine on for around 5mins but i think my skin is just adjusting to it since it tends to be quite sensitive. If you like you can add a few drops of fresh lemon juice to the tomato beforehand. This can help with toning and reducing red marks.
You will notice the difference immediately. I noticed within 30seconds of it being on my skin. I had never seen my pores closed that tight before. I have used many and varied expensive primers and pore minimizers over the years so naturally i was delighted to stumble upon this brilliant method.
Try it yourself and see. I have only been doing it for a few days but i intend on keeping it up, as i have read it improves your skin, gives it a glow, nutrients and also fights acne. I will post again in a month or so and report back as to how my skin is doing but i can honestly say its the best way for me to shrink my pores so far.
Another method i tried out once the other night was the egg white face mask. Simple to whip up, just separate the egg white from the yolk and mix well with a fork. Then apply immediately.
Within around 3 minutes it will have hardened and you will feel it as it becomes taught. When you look in the mirror you will see straight away that the pores have closed and the skin is completely smooth! Like magic, it make the pores compact and invisible. I read this tip from a models website as a tip. She uses this mask the night before a shoot to have her skin look its best. And she adds lemon juice and does it as a weekly facial to keep her skin in check. Apparently, over time it reduces the appearance of red marks and they can even vanish completely. I noticed i had less blackheads after one application. You can leave this mask on overnight if you want, or just leave it on for 15mins which is what i did. I was really surprised and happy with the results so I’m going to do this once a week for a month in conjunction with the tomato. Will see how it goes and let you know..
The other thing i read after much research on the tomato facials was you can mix tomato with honey and apply to the face as a mask for 15mins. Its another one i will be trying out as i love honey as a face mask and use it all the time. Looking forward to seeing there results of that too.
Anyway, see what you think for yourselves and please let me know by commenting.
