How to make pores smaller in combination skin: know from dermatologist

Are you looking for a solution for closing your open pores? Do you have combination skin?

 

Well, I have formulated this skin care regime just for you! This skincare regime using homemade skincare products (mostly) will help you achieve optimum oil secretion in combination skin type along with prevention and reduction of open pores. However, you might need peels, lasers or medicines from a dermatologist for reducing the bigger open pores along with this skincare regime. So, let us get started!

Well, you need to put your heart and soul into this skincare regime to get the results.

The regime is simple and it involves:

  • 3 daily steps in the morning and night: CTM- cleansing, toning and moisturising
  • 2 weekly steps on Sundays that include scrubbing followed by face pack.

Well, the key to rediscovering your beauty is discipline to follow the steps given below for at least 3 months. Though I can't promise you flawless skin but you can definitely gain a healthy skin. Also, I must tell you that as you change from the chemical laden products to green skin care products, your skin might need time to adjust. However, you should not get excessive redness, burning, rash, or breakouts with this regime. In such cases, discontinue the regime because we are using potent herbs and essential oils that might NOT suit some of you. Lastly, you still have to use sunscreen and night cream from the market because a high level of expertise is needed to make these products at home. I have also provided you with alternative safer skincare product to buy from the market, just in case you don't have time to make homemade skincare products.

What ingredients will you need to make your own homemade skin care products?

Here is the list of ingredients that you might need to make your own skincare products. These ingredients will be enough for almost 1-2 years supply and they mostly have shelf-life of 2 years provided they are stored in cool and dry places.
