Herbal Remedy for Large Pores on the Skin

Overview

Aging, improper cleansing, cosmetics and environmental pollution all contribute to large pores on the sensitive facial skin. To reduce large pores, Stepahnie Tourles, a holistic esthetician and author of "Organic Body Care Recipes," recommends herbal facial steams. The steam increases circulation and brings toxins out of the pores, allowing them to close. According to "The Complete Book of Herbs," astringent herbs such as sage, yarrow, nettle and lupine seed deep clean and reduce pores. Essential tea tree oil kills bacteria and heals skin blemishes, according to "Aromatherapy Guide to Essential Oils."

Step 1

Boil the water and vinegar together. Add the sage, nettle, yarrow and lupine seed. Remove from heat and steep, covered, for 10 minutes. While waiting, cleanse your face thoroughly with a gentle cleanser.

Step 2

Add essential oils to the herbal water and and set it on a table or other flat surface that you can sit in front of comfortably.

Step 3

Drape the towel over your shoulders and lean over the pot of herbs with your eyes closed. Pull the towel over your head, shoulders and the pot to create a tent. Sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Relax, breathe deeply and keep your eyes closed. After your facial steam, splash your face first with lukewarm water followed by cold water to help close pores.
