Open Pores :

We have received so many Emails about certain “Holes” in the skin. Everyone has holes in their skin but please do not make them sound like some sort of craters. Open pores, as these ‘Holes’ are usually called, always appear more on greasy or coarse skins and are basically enlarged pores. These pores become enlarged due to the excessive oil secretion and lack of tightening masks that both clean and absorb excess moisture.

Using an antiseptic face wash or tonic which has been refrigerated will help to reduce oilness. You can mash 1 banana and apply the pulp on the face for 20 minutes and then wash off or you can rub tomato halves on the face and let the skin soak up its juices. Another effective face pack can be made by refrigerating 4-5 pieces of papaya for 20 minutes, mashing the pieces and applying them to the face for 15 minutes and then washing it off. Banana, tomato and papaya are also known to have a cleansing and tightening effect on the skin.
