How To Close Pores On your Face

How To Close Pores On your Face
To open your facial pores, you can give yourself a steam facial. First, run hot water into your sink until it’s steamy, and let it fill up the bowl. Then, cover your head with a towel to trap the steam and place your face over the sink. After a minute of soaking up all that steam, the pores should open enough to loosen the dirt and blackheads that have clogged your skin. After you have open pores, you can use a gentle, exfoliating facial scrub to get rid of the excess grime. Finish by rinsing with cold water. Some people like to squeeze their blackheads to unclog pores, but be careful not to do anything painful — it’s bound to cause damage or scarring.

Other popular ways to open pores and unclog facial pores include:

    * Using a detoxifying mask. You can find one in your local drugstore.
    * Using pore strips, which are designed to remove blackheads from the nose. Don’t use these if you have very sensitive skin, though.
    * Getting a professional facial at a spa. This is costly, but great because it’s customized to your skin type!

Once your facial pores look nice and smooth, be sure to regularly exfoliate. Wash your face twice a day to keep it clean. You can repeat the steam facial once a week, or as you need it.

If you have large facial pores and wish they were smaller, it’s most likely due to genetics or hormonal changes. Open pores can cause the texture of the skin to look coarse — but don’t get discouraged! To deal with large, open pores, be sure to wash your face regularly
