Want an easy, cheap and effective way to minimise those pores?
Your answer is Milk.
Pure milk is a proven skin cleansing agent which also help to minimise pores.
Apply boiled milk, whilst still warm on the skin with a piece of wool to remove dirt even from pores of skin.
You’ll see the difference!
Another great DIY recipe for a toner.
Rosewater is commonly used in Middle Eastern and Indian foods, however, it also makes an effective toner for the skin.
A mixture of equal amount of lime juice, glycerin and rose water has great effects on skin. This solution will remove pimples and blackheads from skin.
All the ingredients can easily be found in your local supermarket.
If you are low on cash or prefer to make your own rosewater like I do (I am much more satisfied when I know exactly what I am putting on my skin), here’s the recipe on how you can make your own:
1. The petals must be freshly picked. Pesticides or chemicals should not be used while growing them, which is why it makes sense to use roses that you have grown yourself.
2. Pick flowers two to three hours after sunrise when the morning dew has evaporated.
3. Use only petals, not the stem and leaves.
4. Wash thoroughly to remove bugs and dirt particles.
5. Place the rose petals in a large pot of distilled water.
6. Add just enough water to cover the petals. Too much water will give you very diluted rose water.
7. Cover the pot with a lid and simmer on a low flame. The water should be steaming hot not boiling hot.
8. Allow the water to steam until the petals have lost their colour and the water has taken on the colour of the rose petals. You will see the rose oil floating on the surface.
9. Strain the water and collect in a container. Store it in a refrigerator. It will last longer this way.
Because rosewater is a natural moisturiser, I like to store mine in a small spray bottle. It’s great as a makeup setter and anytime you need a little hydration.
