Got Large Pores?


Large Pores are such a Pain!

I swear that they are the reason why the beauty filter was created!  If you have oily skin then you definitely know the struggle. 

I am all about effortless easy beauty so I wanted to share a few tips to reduce the appearance of your pores.

1. Cold Water - This is my favorite and easiest tip.  After cleansing and/or exfoliating, splash your face with cold water repeatedly for 15-20 counts.  The cold water helps in tightening your pores over time.  I know it seems silly, but I learned this trick from a Japanese friend with pore-less skin.   It really does work if you keep up with it. 

2. Apple Cider Vinegar - I use this sometimes as a toner as it is a natural astringent.  Mix equal amounts of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (this is a good one) and water and apply with a cotton ball.  For best results, use every night after you cleanse your face.  Follow with a light moisturizer. 

3. Baking Soda - This is great for removing excess oil, dirt and debris from your skin. It also helps balance the pH levels reducing problems like acne and pimples due to its antibacterial properties.  Mix two tablespoons each of baking soda and lukewarm water.   Apply the mixture on your skin and massage in circular motion for a few seconds.   Finally, rinse it off with cool water.  Repeat the process daily for five to seven days. Then reduce the frequency to three to five times a week for a few weeks.

I hope you found these tips helpful!
