Treating Open Pores at Home

Submitted by on November 19, 2011 – 2:32 amNo Comment



The primary cause of pimples and blackheads is lodging of bacteria and dirt inside pores of our skin. Individuals with large or open pores are more susceptible towards developing pimples and blackheads as open pores allow more impurities to get trapped in them. Proper skin care at home can help in closing the open pores; below we have discussed three of the most useful ways of treating open pores at home.

Massage your skin: Massage works by loosening up the blockages of our skin and also improves circulation, as a result of which the exposed and open skin pores get closed. Our facial skin can be massaged with any non-comedogenic oil like castor oil or olive oil or water. When using oil for the massage, the massage should be continued for 5 to 6 minutes. The massage should then be followed by steaming the skin so that the oil gets released. Releasing of the oil will result in cleansing of the pores and the pores will also become smaller. For steaming, place your face 12inches above a bowl filled with boiling hot water or put a cloth soaked in steaming water on your face until the cloth cools down.

Cleanse your skin: The process of skin cleansing is extremely delicate; if the skin is cleansed improperly, one might develop bacterial infection in his or her clogged and open pores. People with open pores on their facial skin, must not use moisturizing soaps or soap strips containing natural oils for cleansing their face. Instead, they should opt for using a gentle cleanser or soap that is formulated for people with sensitive skin. You can also prepare a cleanser at home using natural ingredients. To prepare the facial cleanser at home mix 2 tablespoon baking soda, 2 tablespoon oats and 1 tablespoon of boiling hot water together; this mixture should be massaged onto the facial skin for 2 minutes. After that, rinse your face using cold water. Using cold water while washing the face finally will close the cleansed skin pores.

Ice your skin: Too much heat, for instance hot water or steam opens up our skin pores. Cold items, on the other hand, help in closing the open pores. AS a result, it is advisable that people experiencing problems related to open pores apply extremely cold substances such as ice cubes on their skin. This will result in gradual shrinking of the pores and finally the pores will close down.
