Managing Pores and facial mask recipes for pores

Basic Pore Cleansing Steps

From what I mentioned last time about reducing pores, I would like to add some more skincare tips on managing and cleansing to treat and manage pores. For effective pore treatment perform the following steps about 2-3 times a week. You can perform deep cleansing as well but no more than 2-3 times a week otherwise you are more likely to increase the size of your pores.

  • Step 1:
    Open your pores by splashing your face using warm water or covering your face with a steamed towel.
  • Step 2:
    Wash your face with enough foam cleanser containing effective pore minimizing ingredients. Gently rub your face as you massage your face. Carefully wash on the T-zone spots where sebum secretion is excessive.
  • You can also remove impurities in pores with deep cleansing, exfoliating products or by using face packs or masks. If you have too many blackheads or whiteheads on your nose, try using some pore strips.

  • Step 3:
    Tighten pores right after cleansing by splashing cold water on your face. Dry your face and then gently pat on a pore specialized toner.
  • Step 4:
    Provide moisture. Moisture is essential even for oily skin types. Apply lotions or essence. Massage your face at the same time.

Tips for Men with Enlarged Pores

Men usually have fairly large pores. Mostly because men neglect the basic skincare routines to cleanse and firm skin and understanding what type of skin type they have and what they can do about it.

For most men wanting to reduce large pores, an ice massage works well.

Gently rub your face with a cloth filled with ice for about 2 minutes. If you apply the ice around the T-zone spot where sebum secretion is excessive, it will help to sooth the skin and minimize the size of the pores.

But be careful, you don’t want to leave ice on your face too long. You’ll damage your skin and your face will go numb if you overdo it.
