5 Tips to Shrink Your Pores
Every Girl’s Dream: Learn How to Get Smaller Pores!
As we age our bodies change, but the choices we make can affect how drastic these changes turn out to be. Some people go to extremes using surgery to combat the aging process, when the reality is that proper nutrition and exercise along with a good skincare regimen can keep you healthier and in a better position than those who go under the knife.
One of the main components that can make us look older is the size of our pores. Unfortunately, we can never fully shrink them to baby-smooth ever again, we can only make them smaller and less noticeable. As we get older they become enlarged due to lessening of skin elasticity. By learning how to properly care for our skin, we can at least prevent them from becoming larger than they’ve already become.
Before rushing down to the store or to the dermatologist’s office to purchase cosmetics and cleansers that you don’t know how your skin will respond to, try a few simple home tricks to decrease the appearance of those pores.
Wash your face every day with a gentle cleanser that won’t irritate the skin and cool water, then use a toner. Toners can be useful, even if you have dry skin. A homemade toner that’s extremely beneficial is two tablespoons apple cider vinegar and two tablespoons crushed mint leaves; combine them in a small glass container. Let it sit for one week, then strain out the mint and add one cup of filtered water. It may have a strong vinegar odor, so nighttime application is suggested.
