Close Those Pores
Do you have pores like dinner plates? We all have that worry. There’s nothing worse than leaving the house thinking everyone is looking at the size of your pores. Plus, when your pores are wide open, they attract all the bacteria and germs, leading to terrible skin and acne. All you need now… an apple! Cut your apple (green or red) into thin slices and then place them on your face for 15 minutes. The apple slices will soak up all that extra oil and close those pores.
Blackheads Are Gone
Sadly, big pores and blackheads tend to go hand in hand. But blackheads don’t need to stick around. Want them gone? Check this out! Create a paste using lemon juice and cucumber juice (equal parts). You can apply fresh paste to your neck and face before you hop in the bath (or a shower, keep the water away from your face). Let it sit for ten minutes, and then wash it off. You can use this regularly. You were doing this before bed is wiser, as you don’t want to go into the sun after applying citric juice. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
Lime Juice Scrub
Grab some sea salt, carrier oil (like sweet almond), and fresh lime juice. Mix it all and apply it with a cotton ball (or your fingers). Rub it on your face to remove dead skin cells. You may also find that it helps reduce the appearance of pimple scars. Again, this is one to do at night as you don’t want to head into the sun with citric juice on your skin. Or, try this recipe!
Create a paste from fresh cucumber and mix it with some raw milk. You can apply this paste to your face and give it at least 15 minutes on your skin. Then you can rinse it off using fresh, warm water. It’s a great way to soften and soothe your skin. It’s great for your face, but you can use this elsewhere, too.
The Power of Tomatoes
Okay, tomatoes are packed with antioxidants. You can mash up a tomato and apply it directly to your face. You can rinse it with cold water after 20 minutes. Or, you can make a paste to use on your face daily. What tomatoes are great for is treating oily skin. It’s acidic (which is why it gives you heartburn when you eat it) and cooling. So, tomato pulp is an excellent way to eliminate excessive facial oil and balance your skin. Apply the pulp for 15 minutes to soak in and dry to reduce fat. Then you can rinse it off with warm water.
