Sensitive skin shows continuous hyperactivity to environmental factors and exhibits a reduced tolerance to frequent or prolonged use of cosmetics and toiletries. The skin displays signs of irritation such as erythema, desquamation or discomfort such as itching, burning and stinging. These conditions are becoming even more pronounced after exposure to dry and cold climates. Sensitivity can also increase with age. It has been reported for example that the skin gets more sensitive in women at the beginning of menopause. Continue reading “How To Protect And Improve Sensitive Skin”

Reduce Pores – How to Reduce Your Pores Naturally

How to Reduce Your Pores Naturally

When you have big pores on your face, it makes it easier to get them clogged with oil and dirt. This in turn leads to acne breakouts.

To reduce your pores naturally, try one of the following methods.

Use Ice on Your Skin

This might be one of the less common remedies for reducing your pores, and is as natural as can be. If you have ice in your freezer, it can be used to reduce your pores. The reason is because the ice will help to tighten your skin, so it starts naturally shrinking your pores at the same time. You will feel refreshed and ready to take on the day. Ice directly on the skin might burn a bit, so you can wrap it in a thin cloth if you prefer. Rub it against your skin for just a few seconds. If you prefer, you can simply rinse your face with cold water in the morning.

Try Making a Yogurt Mask

Plain yogurt has a lot of uses for beauty, including turning it into a face mask that can help reduce your pores. Yogurt has a lot of healthy bacteria and probiotics which are great for your skin, while also helping to reduce your pores.

For a yogurt mask, you can use yogurt alone or add in some other natural ingredients, from essential oils to apple cider vinegar. Apply the yogurt mask to your face and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes. Rinse well with cool water and pat dry. This is not something you do every day, but rather once or twice a week to be effective.

Apply Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is starting to trend a lot in natural health circles because of the long list of benefits it has. It is acidic, but it isn’t bad for your skin. Quite the opposite actually.

Apple cider vinegar can help to balance the pH level of your skin, while also providing antibacterial properties. This helps to cleanse your pores and eventually shrink them. You want to mix apple cider vinegar with water, using one part of each for the proper ratio. Apply it to your skin with a cotton ball like you would a skin tonic, leaving it for a few minutes. Rinse it off with cool water. Make sure you apply a moisturizer afterward.

Also make sure you are cleaning and exfoliating on a regular basis.

For years, goats milk has been a staple in most cultures. Nutrinionally it is superior to cows milk because it contains more nutrients, vitamins, proteins and minerals.
