1. Why Pores Enlarge

For starters, you must know 2 reasons your pores enlarge. The first reason is heat — heat triggers the sebum production within the skin — this trigger enlarges pores.

The second reason for sagging pores is because of aging skin. As we age, the skin loses its elasticity, and this leads to the pores stretching out and enlarging.

As a Millennial or member of Gen-Z, thinking of aging skin could be far from your mind. But when you think about aging skin — the thought could be alarming. That said, just take a breath to calm yourself. The good news is this DIY on how to shrink pore size, could help slow the look of aging skin. Fancy, eh?

2. Recommended DIY Beauty Tools

There are 5 recommended beauty tools that you will need to reduce large pores.

The 5 tools are:

  • Aloe Gel
  • Ice Pack or Wet Cooled Towel (one you dampened & stored in your fridge)
  • Toner
  • Modeling Mask
  • Facial Expressions
3. DIY STEP ONE | Apply Aloe Gel Mask
  • To begin this DIY, apply a thick layer of aloe gel to a clean face, as you would a clay mask.
  • Apply a thicker layer of aloe gel on areas of your face that heats up as aloe gel dries.
  • This gel removes heat from the surface of your face.
  • Please use an organic aloe gel product, who’s first & largest ingredient is aloe.

4. DIY STEP TWO | Place Cooled Damp Towel on Neck 

  • After, you apply the aloe gel place your cooled damp towel on the back of your neck. Leave it on your neck for 5 – 20 minutes.
  • Or, if you have a defrosted ice pack — you can use it instead of the damp towel you placed in the fridge.
  • Do not use the ice pack on your neck while frozen. Defrost it first till it cools.
  • Relax while you have the aloe cooling the surface of your skin and the cooled damp towel cooling your inner body heat.
Super Awesome Side Notes:
  • You must cool your skin to reduce heated facial skin. Do this by cooling the back of your neck.
  • Your neck is sensitive to body temps — like the back of your neck. So, stimulating your neck will increase blood circulation.
  • Thus, in the shower, streaming hot water across the back of the neck will warm you up quick. The same effect occurs with cool water.
  • So, cooling the back of the neck will cool your heated facial skin.
  • You need to hydrate your skin before cooling. This is how you can lock hydration in your pores and not damage your skin.

4. DIY STEP THREE | Remove Aloe Gel & Towel

  • After 5 – 20 minutes passes, it’s time to remove the towel & aloe gel.
  • First, remove the towel from the back of your neck.
  • Next, dampen a cotton pad with toner and use it to remove the aloe gel from your face, instead of cleansing with water. This allows you to leave the skin hydrated.
  • You can use any toner, except clarifying toner for oily skin (because that defeats the purpose of ways to reduce size of pores).
5. DIY STEP FOUR | Apply Modeling Mask
  • Apply a modeling mask to your face. Use a mask with a “cooling effect”.
  • Applying a modeling mask with a “cooling effect” this keeps your skin cooled from deep within —  not just on the surface.
  • Leave the mask on your face for 15 minutes. Then remove from face.
6. DIY STEP FIVE | Use Facial Expressions
  • After your face is cool and hydrated, you can reduce the size of your pores with your own facial expressions.
  • First, imagine pulling your facial muscles to the center of your face.
  • Squeeze your facial muscles for 3 seconds, then release. Think of your facial reaction as if you were to have a cream pie thrown in your face at a party.

It should look like this:
