If you have larger pores, then you know that they can get clogged easier, and they don’t always look like the prettiest thing on the planet.
Going to a beauty spa offers expensive methods that often times use dangerous chemicals, but luckily we have a natural and cheap way to help you with this problem.
If you have larger pores, you should not be ashamed of that, but a large number of people that have this problem like to shrink them if possible.
What causes large pores?
In some cases, this is a genetic problem. Gender and ethnicity can also play a major role. Men for an example, usually have larger pores than women. Individuals with oily skin also tend to have larger pores, because of the fact that their skin produces more sebum.
Do pores get bigger and smaller, and do they open and close?
Well, sort of. When sebum builds up inside of the pores, it will make them look like they are larger. In this case, steam can help you loosen the sebum that is being developed inside of the pores. When the sebum gets flushed out, your pores will look smaller.
Prior to the steam, the pores were stretched like water balloons that are filled with water, and after the water in the balloons is released, they will deflate, and become smaller.
What can you do to reduce the appearance of the pores?
You can always purchase an over-the-counter cosmetic product, in hope that it can help, but in most cases, these products are dangerous because of the chemicals that they contain, and they are not so effective as you had hoped. What you can do, is use the natural remedies that we will show you:
