Here is a natural homemade face mask for pore tightening I like to use.
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 are 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 makeup while you sleep
- Wear sunscreen
- Use retinol, vitamin C and Hydroxy Acid products
- Steam your face
- Try a facial
- Use a primer
- Buy non-comedogenic foundations
- Get a chemical peel or a laser
- Make weekly natural face masks with astringent properties
The American Academy of Dermatology also recommends keeping 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.
Let’s make the recipe.

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-hydroxy 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.
