Having large pores on your face can leave room for dirt and bacteria to stay in. When there is dirt or bacteria in your pores, you can start having a breakout. Luckily, you can make your own pore minimizer with just simple ingredients you can find at your home!
- Baking Soda Paste
For the first example, you can use baking soda paste. Wash your face gently with soap and water. After washing, put 3-4 tbsp. of baking soda on your hand and add a bit of water to form a thick paste. Mildly apply to your face and leave on for 30 seconds.
- Milk and Gelatin Mask.
This recipe will help you clean out your pores and make them stay small once they’re clear of dirt.
Mix together 1 tbsp. of unflavored gelatin and 1 1/2 tbsp. of milk and microwave the mixture on high for a few seconds. Use an old brush to apply to your face and leave it on for 15 mins.
Once the film forms on your face you can start peeling it off bit by bit. You should be able to see the dirt that was collected on the film.
- Pineapple Cornmeal Facial Scrub
This mixture will not only make your pores small but also clean them in the process.
Mix 1/2 cup of crushed pineapples and 1/2 a cup of cornmeal in a bowl until the mixture looks well blended then refrigerate for 15 minutes.
After taking it out from the fridge, add 2 tbsp. of jojoba oil to the mix. Gently rub on your face and leave it to dry for 10 minutes before washing it away with water.
