Large pores may be caused by genetics, aging, sun damage or even acne and black heads, which expand the size of the pores. However, you can minimize the appearance of large pores instead of living with the embarrassing condition. One natural way is to make your own large pores treatment mask using lemon juice and egg whites. This treatment 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 two tbsp. of lemon juice. Mix well with a fork or wire whisk to combine. This solution will tighten the skin and works very well as a large pores treatment.
Apply a layer of the large pores treatment mask to the affected areas of skin. Don't forget to apply around the large pores to help tighten up the surrounding skin. Allow the mixture to remain in place for at least 20 minutes or longer if possible. During this time, you'll feel the skin begin to tighten. This indicates that the pores treatment is working.
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 large pores treatment daily to dramatically reduce pore size. Although you will not see instant results, with patience and diligence, this treatment will minimize pores over time. See a noticeable difference in 2-4 weeks.
Tips & Warnings
- Another large pores treatment mask that really works is a paste made of almond flour and water. Apply as directed above and follow with witch hazel to tighten skin and reduce large facial pores. Try using it in conjunction with the treatment given above, or use it on its own if you prefer. Remember, it takes time to minimize your pores, regardless of the treatment used.
