Open Pores- Treatment, Prevention & Makeup

              Oily skin has the disadvantage of a perpetually shiny nose, a skin that hates makeup and of course, a tendency to large pores. Oily skin requires proper cleansing and scrubbing. Large pored skin does not look lovely at close quarters and they also provide a base for blackheads and pimples.Oil secretion in excess is the root cause of open pores.

How to deal with it:- Wash face regularly with a gentle face wash specially designed for oily skin. Use a toner atleast twice a day. Don't touch/squeeze pimples, black and white heads.

Makeup:- Avoid using oil/cream based foundation, blush etc on your face. If possible start using mineral makeup, Oriflame is cheap and available for all. Also use a darker shade of foundation over the pores. Apply a primer before foundation. Don't use cream blush instead use a powder blush.

Pore Minimizer:- Mix together 1tspn of tomato pulp, 2 tspn egg white, 3 tspn brandy, 1 tspn honey and 2 tspn flour. Make a smooth paste and apply on your face avoiding around your eyes and mouth. Keep it on for 20 mins and wash off. Use this only once a week.

Face Pack 1:- Mix together 3 tspn of yogurt and 3 tspn of pureed cucumber. Apply all over face and keep it on till it dries. Wash off. Use this pack 2 times a week.

OR

Face Pack 2:- Mix together 1 tspn flour, 1 pinch camphor, 1 tspn brandy and 1 tspn honey. Apply on your face avoiding your around the eye and mouth areas. Keep it on for 10 mins and wash off. Can be applied twice a week. Do clean face with oil-free cleanser or face wash before applying this pack.

HI M Ankita
I have recently developed some darkening around my lips and chin.
Have tried too many things, consulted doctor too. under went some chemical peelings. But the result is temporary. Is there any home treatment for it?

@ankita- thanks for being here :)
Try a simple scrub every alternate day made of almond/olive/baby oil and a pinch or 2 of sugar. Scrub the area gently and also you can add lemon juice to the above mixture. There is a scrub available with the chemist and its called AHA GLOW face scrub, you can check it out. I bro (a doc) tells me it is helpful for sensitive skin with minor pigmentation. Hope this helps you and do let me know what happens :)
