Our pores become enlarged when they are clogged with bacteria, oil or dirt thus resulting to them being inflamed.
Although you really could not make your pores shrink and make them invisible, except through surgery, they are still ways on how you can make them appear smaller.
Here are some ways on how you can minimize your enlarged pores:
Washing your face
In order to remove dirt which causes clogged pores, you should wash your face at least twice a day. It is also recommended to use light scrub as it helps in unclogging pores and use a cleanser which is good for oily skin.
After washing your face, try to place ice cubes on your face pressing gently on your pores for at least 15 seconds. Ice can have a tightening effect on your face, making your pores appear smaller.
Yogurt contains lactic acid and probiotics which helps in reducing bad bacteria on skin. Simply apply a thin layer of plain yogurt on your face and leave it for less than ten minutes.
Caffeine intake also affects your pores as well. It is said that drinking coffee causes heightened stress and anxiety, which causes the adrenal glands to increase production of androgen leading to increase in the production of skin cells thus resulting in clogged pores. Be sure to limit your caffeine intake in order to minimize clogged pores.
