There is a backbone to everything which supports it. For the skin, it is the pores. The pore is what can create the problem or build the skin of great quality. Hence, it is very important to maintain it in the most appropriate way possible. The tighter the pore, the better it is for the skin. It is from the pores that the dirt and the gunk enter deeper into the skin and cause the damage. However, a lot of times, due to external factors the pores tend to expand making the impurities enter deeper in the skin and that too in greater amounts. It could be the pollution, dirt or even cosmetics. There are some natural masks which you can use to shrink these pores for good. Use them to benefit your skin.
