1 easy way to tighten pores naturally

Plagued with frustrating large pores? This remedy works to tighten and keep skin firm and it comes with NO side effect.

 

Open/large pores affect the skin's natural texture and makes them more prone to infection. If the skin is not moisturized daily, it over secretes oil to make up for the loss which ends up leaving the skin oilier! (Even oily skin requires some form of moisturizing in which case a non-comedogenic moisturizer).

Large pores are very frustrating to deal with ! There are loads of O-T-C products as well as procedures to help shrink the pores to keep the skin healthier and look younger but some remedies done at home work just perfect.

Directions:

1. Crack egg in a ceramic or metal bowl (DON'T use plastic bowl for this purpose, it won't work)

2. Remove the egg yolk

3. Add sugar to the egg white and whisk away (an egg whisk works better for this)

4. Keep whisking the mix until the yellowish whites turns to a thick white bubbly foam

5. Wash the face, ensure it's squeaky clean

6. Apply the 'foam' (the thoroughly whisked egg white and sugar mix) to the face and neck area with CLEAN brush or fingers.

7. Leave this on for about 10-15 minutes then wash off first with lukewarm water and then splash on cold/running water.

9. Apply moisturizer to seal in the moisture.

Egg Whites help to get rid of acne, wrinkles and skin are noticeably firmer and tighter as a result of protein in eggs; a natural astringent that tones and reduces oil which shrinks the skin.

Sugar is a great addition because it's a natural exfoliator that helps keep the skin smooth and baby soft.
