How to Shrink Pores Day 283

How to Shrink Pores? Can pores be shrunk? Continue from Fractional Co2 Laser Day 279, I decided to change the title of this series because it has nothing to do with Co2 Laser Resurfacing anymore. It is all about How to Shrink Pores. There is no cure here. I am still looking for it. I am recording down every step I took. Perhaps, one day miracle will come to me and I will tell everybody proudly, this is how I shrink my pores on my nose. I am sorry for not showing all of my face here, only forehead, cheeks and nose as you can see in my entries. I am not confident enough to show. A friend of mine posted a selfie of her on Facebook showing she has one big pimple on her chin, can you imagine that? I am not able to do so. If I have a pimple, I will try my best to hide it. Thank to my perfectionism, I am very critical of myself. However, I am learning to overcome my weaknesses. Whatever it is, How to Shrink Pores? If you keep track of my entries, you probably heard of me talking about natural home remedies for skin. I did a Homemade Milk Powder Rice Powder Rice Vinegar Mask just now. The mask paste is surprisingly smooth and silky. My skin feels so clean, soft and silky now. I am impressed. Milk powder contains lactic acid which is the key to healthy smooth skin. There was a little bit of redness around the area around my eyes after putting the mask. I think this kind of mask may not be suitable for dairy sensitive or sensitive skin person. I am still testing and trying natural home remedies. If home remedies really work, I will share the recipes here. Now I have Coconut Oil and natural Aloe Vera Gel on my face.

How to Shrink Pores Naturally

How To Shrink Pores Day 283
Oh I forget to mention about pores on my nose. The ‘hole’ I mentioned in my previous entry bled internally while I was trying to remove the blackheads from my nose. Pores are still large. How to Shrink Pores? Can anyone tell me? Give me an effective treatment. Although I plan to go natural, I am searching Clearasil Pads on eBay. I had used the pads during my one month short stay at Perth Australia years back in 2011 and I thought the product was good. I discontinued using because Clearasil products are not available in my country. What is good about it is that Clearasil Pads contain 1-2% of Salicylic Acid that can be used daily to gently exfoliate and help keep our skin clean of breakouts. I have both 10% and 30% Salicylic Chemical Peels. Instead of using strong solution once a week or once a month, will it be better to use a mild solution daily? I have a bad habit, I can sit hours in front of my laptop surfing the net without moving and drinking water. This kind of lifestyle is very bad for health and skin. I really need to think and think, whether it is worth to sacrifice my youth in doing what I call, a dream. I cannot sleep again. I have many things running through my head. It is always difficult for me to fall asleep.

    Hi 🙂
    I’m a 21 yr old girl from Australia and I know exactly how you feel. I thought no one else had a nose like mine and it makes so upset everyday. I had a couple of cysts on my nose and they left bumps which I ignored but recently my nose pores have enlarged due to increased oil production because of hormonal changes during pregnancy. It’s hard coming to terms that my nose will be like this forever. I am considering laser treatments but am very afraid that it will make my nose worst. Thankyou so much for sharing your story x

      Hi Em, thank you for sharing your story with me, I feel you! When I look in the mirror, I feel upset too. I have noticeable pores on my cheeks but they do not really concern me as much as pores on my nose. For your information, enlarged pores are concern for many people of all ages and skin types, especially for those with oily and combination skin. Don’t worry because you are not alone! In my opinion, if you can, look for a reliable dermatologist, ask the dermatologist about Co2 laser, Dermaroller and Chemical Peel Treatments (treatments I know for treating enlarged pores, there may be more), seek for more advices, read more reviews, and understand all the treatments before taking any. Stay positive! I wish you the best of luck with everything, and really hope you find something that works for you!

      Em, you are welcome 😉 My dermatologist told me that I needed about 10 Co2 Laser Treatments for my pores to look smaller. To be honest, I DO NOT recommend Co2 Laser cause it is too aggressive, expensive and not worth the risk. Many people have experienced terrible orange peel texture side effect. I had undergone 4 times but as you can see, pores on nose are still very obvious (out-of-shape, deep and uneven). I was too desperate that time. I have heard of TCA but I have never tried it. It is a type of Chemical peels. I do believe that chemical peels can help on deep acne scar if performed correctly. I am trying 30% Salicylic Acid Peel at home. I have spent too much money on seeing dermatologists and buying useless skin care products for years. It is better to rely on myself. Still, for you, do not try things that you are not sure, seek professional advice from your dermatologist and make your own judgement and decision.
