Open pores are a very common skin care issue. They prevent your skin from having a

flawless finish and appearance. More than that, however, they could be an indication that your skin is imbalanced and in need of daily care with the right natural ingredients.


In my experience there is nothing like a combination of high quality natural ingredients that can bring harmony and balance into the skin. Geranium and sandalwood are my top favorites when it comes to balancing out the skin and minimizing the appearance of open pores. There is no artificial chemical ingredient in my view that can safely and in the long term minimize open pores.

Going back to how open pores indicate imbalance; this is easy to understand. Undernourished and challenged skin is triggered to produce excess sebum in order to protect itself. When your skin is constantly producing excess sebum, the pores are bound to be open in order to accomplish this.

Following homemade recipe can be an ideal supplement to your skin care routine (for your unique skin type) and can help minimize the appearance of open pores. Try it today and use it 1-2 times a week. This remedy is good for all skin types.
