People with oily skin usually have enlarged face pores. But, in fact, almost anyone with any skin type can have larger face pores in the T-area where skin is usually oilier. These skin pores represent openings of oil glands. Such open pores do not look very good on your face that is why many people look for different methods and remedies to change that situation. But the size of pores is pre-determined and cannot be changed. There is only one thing you can do - and that is to make them tighten up and close.
The amount of oil the gland produces makes pores open or close - so you need to lessen the amount of oil. To accomplish this, many people use different toners but this is the wrong approach. Such technique would give you only temporary results and in the future it can make things even worse. Toners usually contain alcohol or other aggressive substances and these substances irritate gland and thus make the tiny muscles in pores tighten. So your face pores will look smaller now. But after that, your glands will start to produce more oil which will lead to the opening of your face pores. A vicious cycle to be sure.
Instead of that you need to clean your face with some soft face wash or with a special device that is called a pore cleanser. This device works like a small vacuum cleaner. It applies suction to your skin by removing the oil and dirt from your face pores. The use of this interesting device is quite simple: It consists of a cup and some sort of a small pump. You just need to apply it to your face and press the "Start" button. There are different models of face pore cleansers but usually they have two cups: one for the nose and another for the chin and cheeks.
After cleaning procedures you can use some sort of a face pore tightener. There are commercially available pore tighteners from different manufacturers. You can even use a special series of face care products, like "Clean and Clear" for example, that includes face wash, special pore tightener and soft toner.
You can also find a lot of different natural pore tighteners. Just look through the web sites dedicated to skin care and you will definitely find several sources of advice and recipes. Different plants and herbs are used to make natural face pore tighteners but the most common are different recipes with cucumber and lemon juice. Such a mask even being applied for several minutes can clean and tighten your face pores significantly.
Use a small amount of moisturizing or do not use it at all - skin with larger pores usually produces enough moisture (of course, in summer you will need to make a hard choice between moisturizing with sun protection and treating of your enlarged face pores).
You can also cover your face pores with a make up. In the makeup and cosmetic market you can find different products that work like pore tighteners and give you a wonderful foundation for your makeup. Such technique allows covering face pores very well so that no one will ever notice that you have enlarged pores.
Your face pores will probably never disappear completely but with different remedies and methods you can make them much smaller than they are.
