Causes of Open Pores

I would keep this brief just by letting you know the main causes of open pores. Open pores are caused by various reasons like dirt accumulation, oil glands, oily and acne prone skin.

It’s very important to wash your face time to time, specially if you have oily skin, because less washing of face accumulates dirt which then combines with oil resulting into pores. So time to time washing of face with a nice gentle OIL FREE FACE WASH is very important, but making sure not to overdo it.

Open Pores are very common to Acne Prone Skin. They tend to occur when acne, pimples and blackheads leave your skin in an improper way. When you prick a blackhead or a pimple with fingers, they leave a liquid which in turn causes infection thus giving rise to pores.

In simple terms, when people don’t follow proper, safe and natural ways to reduce & get rid of acne, pimples and blackheads, its then they suffer from open pores. I am one of those. I use to have lot of acne & pimples in my teenage, but in order to get rid of them fast, I used to prick them at times and even squeeze the blackhead out by pressing it hard. Yes I was totally blank in beauty matters that time and today I realize how stupid I was. This habit of mine gave me lot of open pores. People use to point me out even if I touched my pimples, because it’s always said you should never touch your acne &  pimples because it increase chance of infection and acne both.

Best Home Remedies to Reduce and Prevent Open Pores.

These are some of the natural and safe home remedies for open pores. You can choose any remedy as per your convenience and skin type. But one needs to be regular with whatever remedy you choose to see results. It’s not a one time solution, rather I would advise you to use the home remedy throughout life if you don’t want your pores to appear again with increased size. That’s why I mentioned to choose the remedy as per your convenience and skin type since you would need to follow it throughout to avoid increased visibility of pores in future.


Toner is the best thing which helps in reducing and preventing of open pores
. Regular applying toner to skin after face wash is very important to close pores. I always suggest people to do natural home exfoliation, at least once a week to get rid of dull dry skin but using toner after exfoliation is a must, since exfoliation results in open pores which requires to be closed with the help of a toner.

You can use any toner according to your skin type. I prefer and recommend Tea Tree Oil Toner for acne prone skin. I use a Tea Tree Oil Toner from Modicare brand, which helps me a lot in reducing my open pores, acne and pimples and gave a healthy glow to my face. I don’t know if it suppresses the pores or actually reduce them, but the result could be clearly seen. It made my skin texture smooth after that rough dry look of acne prone skin. I can truly say its one of the BEST TONER FOR OPEN PORES on Acne Prone Skin. Other than that, one can also use a homemade toner for open pores, if the branded ones are not available.

One can also use Pure Rose Water as a toner, if you don’t have access to any other toner of your type.

One can use Natural Toner of ICE, if you don’t want to use any other toner or you feel your skin is extremely sensitive to try toners. Ice works as a natural toner, for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Rubbing ice cubes regularly on skin two times after face wash result in less visible open pores in just about few days. Make sure to apply moisturizer after toner.


Sugar scrubs are the best in controlling open pores. They help in getting rid of dead skin and also fine lines. Regular use of Sugar Scrub improves skin texture along with making pores less visible in time. Be careful while choosing a scrub, it should be gentle and not harsh at all. You can use any scrub for acne prone skin or your own homemade sugar scrub for open pores. But always remember to apply toner and moisturizer after scrubbing.


Cucumber juice or pulp is a great home remedy to reduce open pores. Take fresh pulp of cucumber and apply it to your face leaving for 20 minutes and then rinse off. One can even rub cotton dipped in cucumber juice and leaving it theer for 20 minutes and the wash off face following with a moisturizer.


Applying Moisturizer to face after toner is very important to make toner stay for long. One can apply any moisturizer but oil free moisturizer for acne prone skin is recommended.

These are some of the tried and tested remedies and treatment which normally works in reducing the pore size to a lot extent. One can choose any of the above methods which they can implement in their daily skin care regimen, since this is not something which will work overnight, rather it requires regular skin care routine for reducing pore size and further preventing them from reappearing specially if the skin is acne prone most prone to pores. In in case one is very busy or don't have time and access to any of the things above due to some possible reasons, I would suggest to apply ice on face since its one of the most simple, cheap yet effective home remedies to disappear open pores in no time.
