Pores are physical openings on your skin. They consist of hair follicle and sebaceous gland. The oil gland produces sebum that helps to remove old skin cells, and keeps your skin lubricated
Exact cause behind enlarged skin pores is unknown but mostly they are associated to excess oil production, UV image and skin aging
Today in this post, I will share morning and night skin care routine that will help you to shrink enalrged skin pores
Let’s start with AM routine
Start your day with Ice treatment, and dip your face in ice water for about 1 minute. Ice facial is very effective to shrink size of large pores, and at the same time it also reduces puffiness on your face.
In next step we have to use gentle face cleanser.
To make this cleanser you can take fuller’s earth powder, in this add enough tomato juice until you get runny mixture
Apply this all over your face, and rub it gently for 2 minutes
Leave this on your face for 5 minutes and then rinse your face
Multani mitt powder is very effective to clean clogged pores.
Tomato juice is rich in astringent properties, that remove excess oil and tighten skin pores. It is also rich in lycopene and antioxidants, that can help you to slow down aging process
Next step of morning routine includes toner, for that you can use simple rose water or apple cider vinegar
If you are using apple cider vinegar, dilute it with equal amount of water and then use it on your face
Next step includes serum and moisturiser. In morning you can use vitamin C serum, as it is rich in anti-oxidants
You can also use Niacinamide serum on your face in day time. After that apply a layer of moisturiser on your face
Finish you skin care routine with a layer of SPF to prevent skin damage
Also in day time if you are using any makeup, make sure it should be non-comedogenic
Now coming to PM routine
If you are using make-up, first take few drops of micellar water on a clean cotton pad and rub it on your face
After that you can double cleanse your face. Just take a pea-sized amount of cleansing balm and use it as a massage oil on your face for 2 minutes.
After that wash your face with regular face cleanser, it is better to use salicylic acid based face cleanser in night.
In night retinoid treatment is very effective for large skin pores. You can use either retinoid cream or retinoid serum on your face.
Apply a thin layer of retinoid cream all over your face followed by moisturizer, and you’re done !!
