CAIRO – 6 February 2018: Large pores are an extremely infuriating beauty concern that almost all women have to deal with. It can contribute to problems like acne and even blackheads, if filled with dirt. Enlarged pores are usually caused by excess oil production, sun damage or even skin aging. Although we can’t completely remove pores, as it is a natural part of our skin, we can minimize the appearance of them by using the following accessible ingredients. As always, we encourage you to test everything on a small part of your skin before going full on, to avoid allergic reactions.

Aloe Vera Gel:

Ancient Egypt called this plant the “plant of immortality” and for good reasons. Aloe Vera has been known to act as a great skin moisturizer, pore and stretch mark eliminator, acne and sun damage healer, and anti-aging agent. Simply by applying it to your face, you’ll see how it soothingly reduces the size of any visible pores. Quick hint: It can be used as a makeup primer, as it leaves a slightly tacky finish, which can help make your makeup last longer.


Yes, it’s as simple as that! Ice is renowned for its tightening effects on skin. It also reduces pimples and inflammations, boosts blood circulation, relieves puffy eyes, delays the appearance of wrinkles and stimulates collagen. Just simply run an ice cube on your face and see its miraculous effects.

Apple Cider Vinegar:

The raw, organic, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar is the one to look out for; it’s the one that will give you the greatest and purest results. It helps reduce fine lines, remove pimples, tighten and clear your skin, minimize large pores, and restore the skin’s pH balance. It is best used when diluted in water, so mix equal amounts of water and vinegar, soak a cotton ball, and smoothly run it all over your face to obtain results. Quick hint: Try directly applying a small undiluted amount of it on unwanted pimples and blemishes.

Egg Whites:

It was used long ago by ancient civilizations, such as the Egyptians, Chinese and Arabs, to achieve radiant skin and hair. It has amazing properties, such as tightening pores, lifting and tightening saggy skin, reducing excess oils, fighting and preventing both acne and its scars, reducing eye puffiness, eliminating blackheads, and delaying fine lines and wrinkles. Simply whisk an egg white and spread it evenly on your face, cover your skin with pieces of tissue paper and peel them off when the mixture dries. Do this once or twice a week on a regular basis to acquire the greatest results.
