The pores on your skin may tend to look larger than usual when the temperature and humidity are high. This happens normally in summer when you sweat a lot. Shrinking and tightening the pores will help you to even out your complexion and help to attain perfect skin. If you notice that the size of your pores are getting bigger then you must start washing your face more often.
Use a mild facial cleanser with warm water and then pat your skin dry with a towel. Once this is done you must use a mild astringent on your face to get rid of the excess oils on your face and close any open pores on your skin.
The astringent also helps to reduce the amount of oil on your face and unclogs blocked pores. If you wear cosmetic makeup then you must use a make up remover before you wash your face with water. Some astringents may only help to reduce the size of your pores while others may only help to get rid of excess oils. You must be aware of the features of the product you are using.
If you want to even out any bumps and scars on your skin then you must use an exfoliating face scrub two to three times a week. This helps to get rid of the dead skin cells and removes blemishes from your skin. Tea tree oil and products that have tea tree as the base ingredient are helpful in eliminating scars from the face. Use a honey based face pack after exfoliating your skin to help to heal any scars and rashes. Since honey has anti bacterial properties it helps to heal the pimples and zits on your skin.
To conceal blemishes you must use a blemish removing or reducing lotion. These are normally tea tree based products that are formulated to zap pimples and get rid of scars on the face. You can also use foundation to hide blemishes when you need to look your best. This is a temporary solution. Drinking water and avoiding beverages that are aerated are beneficial for your skin. Water helps to flush out toxins and helps in nourishing the skin and promoting the growth of new skin cells. Avoid smoking and second hand smoke on your face as it makes your complexion dull.
