Here is a natural diy face mask I like to use to tighten facial pores.
The size of the pores is mainly due to genetics so if you have big pores start blaming your ancestors for it. Yep!
Although there is no way to reduce size pore there is actually things you can do to make them appear smaller.
Here are 12 things you can do:
- Using a toner for your skin type
- Facial masks made with clay to absorb excess oil
- Don’t wear make up while you sleep
- Wear sunscreen
- Use retinol products
- Steam your face
- Try a facial
- Use a primer
- Buy non-comedogenic foundations
- Get a chemical peel
- Use weekly natural face masks
The American Academy of Dermatology also recommends to keep the skin very clean.
Cleanse your face twice a daySource
Clogged pores or an oily complexion can make pores look larger. Cleansing twice daily can unclog pores, prevent clogged pores, and reduce oiliness. When cleansing your face, you’ll want to:
Use warm water. Hot water can irritate your skin, causing pores to look larger.
Gently wash your face. Scrubbing can irritate your skin, causing inflammation. When skin is inflamed, pores tend to be more noticeable.
Find a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser. Again, you want to do everything you can to stop irritating your skin and stop clogging your pores.

Why Are These Ingredients Effective?
The most effective ingredients to tighten pores are said to be those with astringent properties. These properties include reducing oil in the skin and unclogging pores.
The alpha hydrocid acids present in vitamin C help to exfoliate the skin and minimize the appearance of pores.
Its astringent action absorbs excess oil and sebum so the pores appear less clogged. It has anti-inflammatory properties and speeds up skin healing.
It is used in many skin care recipes due to its exfoliant properties. It is also an astringent which is of benefit for oily skin.✅ Pore Reducing Products
