Having a healthy type of skin is very important for one’s beauty. That is why people are advised to drink a lot of water, have fresh fruit and vegetables, and basically to stick to healthy lifestyle if they want to have a healthy and glowing skin. All the good and bad decisions taken when it comes to food, drinking, smoking, and so on, are reflected on one’s face, and particularly skin.
Today we are not going to talk about this side of taking care of one’s skin, but we are going to focus on another so-called problem – big pores. They are unattractive and lead to more sebum appearance – skin oil, thus one’s skin becomes oilier and there could be also a lot of white and black heads due to it.
If you want to reduce the size of your pores, there is a way you can do it. Actually, there are a few ways this could happen and today we are going to show them to you. Check them out!
#1 Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is often used in some beauty treatments because of the acid in it. It can also work for reducing the size of your skin pores because it balances the pH level of your skin and tightens your skin. And not only this but also the acid in it prevents skin infections. It is definitely a good skin remedy for a lot of things. If you want to try this treatment, here is what you need to do.
You will only need two main ingredients: tap water and apple cider vinegar. Get a bowl and mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 5 tablespoons of normal tap water. Mix them well together and then get a clean spray bottle. Pour the mixture in it and use it daily.
The best time of the day to use it is in the morning after you have washed your face. Spray some of the mixture all over your face, avoiding the eye area, and let it dry by itself. Then you can move on to applying makeup but before that make sure you have applied some moisturizer because the apple cider vinegar can easily dry your skin.
#2 Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is one of the most helpful plants when it comes to all kinds of health and beautifying treatments. It is used for losing weight and also as skin remedy after sunburns.
