How to reduce the appearance of open pores
Open pores can be caused by a lot of reasons—thick hair follicles, reduced elasticity or sometimes even genetics. Unfortunately, very big pores can lead to blackheads, eventually leading to acne. The following tips will help you deal with open pores and enhance your appearance.



If you are out all day, chances are you are going to be exposed to dirt and pollution. This will ultimately result in your pores getting clogged, which in turn will increase their size.  So, ensure that you wash your face with your trusted face wash at least twice a day. This will keep your skin clean and prevent those impurities from settling in.


Exfoliation is key


When pores are trapped with oil and makeup, they expand and become more visible. Exfoliation helps you get rid of dead skin cells and reveals a fresh, new layer of skin. Incorporate exfoliation in your regimen thrice a week, so that you get rid of all the accumulated grime.


Home remedies


Take a few egg whites in a bowl. Add oatmeal and lemon juice to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on your face and keep it on for about half an hour. Later, rinse it off with warm water. Egg whites tighten pores and help shrink their size.




Rub lemon juice over your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes and wash off with cold water. Lemon helps tighten the skin as well as unclogs the pores. Do this once a week for best results.
