Many over the counter stores offer you products and cosmetics for tightening the skin and decreasing the pore size, but making DIY treatments also helps.

Below you will read for more DIY remedies that consist of only 2-3 ingredients.
- Rosewater, cucumber, lemon
Peel the cucumber and crush it nicely. To that add 1 tsp rosewater and some lemon drops. This mix should be placed in a clean cloth and folded to your face. Rinse with cool water at the end.
- Lemon juice and egg white
Make a face mask with lemon juice drops in 2 egg whites. Put this mask on the face and after it dries off rinse with cool water.
- Lime juice and tomato
Put lime juice a few drops in tomato juice. Put this on the face with a cotton ball for 15 minutes. Rinse with cold water. The lime juice will remove the extra oil on the skin surface and the tomatoes are an astringent. Also, this tightens and closes up the skin and pores.
- Lime juice and almond
Put a few almonds in water and let them soak overnight. In the morning, mash them to make a paste. To this add 1 tsp lime juice in the mix paste. It should sit on the face for half an hour. Wash with cold water.

The pineapple has enzymes, cleanses and tightens up the skin nicely. It is also compatible with the astringent acid in the lemon juice.
