DIY Astringent for Enlarged Pores Recipe

Unfortunately, there isn't anything you can do to permanently shrink large pores, but you can make them look less noticeable by keeping them clean.  This astringent for enlarged pores recipe will clean out your pores and make them appear smaller.  For best results, use twice a day after washing your face.

Astringent for Enlarged Pores Recipe

Chamomile Tea 
What You Need

1 chamomile tea bag
1 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Sterilized bottle


1.  Place tea bag in a bowl and pour boiling water over the tea bag.  Cover the bowl and let sit until cool.
2.  Remove tea bag and strain solids if necessary.
3.  Add apple cider vinegar.
4.  Pour in sterilized container.

Since this DIY astringent for enlarged pores recipe uses tap water and doesn't have preservatives, it needs to be stored in the fridge to prevent bacterial growth.  Use within one week.

Chamomile soothes your skin, and apple cider vinegar kills bacteria and removes dirt that clogs pores.
