Open and visible pores are the tiny holes in the skin through which sweat and oil can pass. Each pore on your skin has tiny sebaceous glands that help to produce sebum and balance the skin’s natural lubricating oil.  These pores in your skin can get clogged with dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and everyday debris. It is very important to keep the pores clean and unclog them to prevent blackheads and acne.


These amazing face mask recipes will help to deep clean your pores for a clear, healthy skin.
