Pores are the openings of your sweat glands and are present all over your body. Pores become large due to skin damage. This damage includes previous and current acne and/or free radical damage from the environment. Natural remedies are an effective way to treat open pores on the face. In addition to natural remedies, drink plenty of water, take a multivitamin and eat a colourful diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables to ensure you are getting adequate amounts of antioxidants.

    How to Get Rid of Open Pores on the Face

  1. 1

    Combine 1 teaspoon of yeast with 1/2 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice. Distribute evenly on the nose, chin and other areas with large pores.

  2. 2

    Allow the yeast mask to dry for 15 minutes. When the mask feels hard to the touch, rinse with warm water and pat dry.

  3. 3

    Cut a cucumber in thin circular slices and place in a jar. Pour 1/2 cup of witch hazel over the cucumbers.

  4. 4

    Place the soaked cucumbers in the refrigerator and let set for 1 hour. After 1 hour, slide a cucumber slice over the face.

  5. 5

    Store the cucumber astringent in the refrigerator and discard after 1 week. Use the mask every 3 days and the astringent every day to tighten and refine large pores.

Tips and warnings

  • Make the cucumber astringent first so that you can use it directly after the yeast mask.
  • Avoid contact with eyes.
