Large pores may be caused by genetics, aging, sun damage or even acne, which can expand the size of pores. You can minimize the appearance of large pores instead of living with the embarrassing condition. One natural way is to make your own large treatment mask using lemon juice and egg whites. It tightens the skin and reduces large facial pores.
Things You'll Need
- 1 large egg
- Mixing bowl
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- Witch hazel extract (optional)
Crack an egg and separate the yolk from the white. Place the egg white in a small mixing bowl, and then add the lemon juice. Mix well with a fork or wire whisk to combine.
Apply a layer of the mask to the affected areas of skin. Apply some around the large pores, too, to help tighten the surrounding skin. Allow the mixture to remain in place for at least 20 minutes or longer. During this time, you should feel the skin begin to tighten.
Rinse the pore minimizing mask from the skin using tepid to warm water. Apply witch hazel extract to the skin with a cotton ball. Witch hazel is optional, but it will further tone and tighten the skin. Find the extract in local drug stores or health food stores.
Repeat the treatment daily to reduce pore size. Although you may not see instant results, with patience and diligence there should be a noticeable difference in two to four weeks.
