How to Open and Close Your Pores

Our skin is nothing less than an organ that breathes. It is our skin that reflects our health and it gets worse if not taken care for. Many people around the world suffer from certain skin conditions and some of the most common problems are open pores. Although this condition appears to be a trivial one but it is certainly not for those who suffer from it as it is one of the most difficult skin problems to solve!

Open pores are a precursor to many other skin problems and as the pores get enlarged, they start getting clogged immediately. So whether you have comedogenic skin or you are weary of the large pores, you certainly need an immediate skin treatment! This is important because if you keep on ignoring this issue, then this problem will aggravate even more and may lead to certain other complications like acne or even pitted acne or scarring!

    Next choose a place where you cannot be disturbed for the next 10 minutes. Now take a large sized towel and cover your face with it from all the sides. Position your face exactly above the jug and lean a little so that your face can absorb the right amount of steam. Keep on taking steam like this from time to time by uncovering the jug. Your pores will soften up in less than 10 minutes.
