As we grow older, our skin matures and our pores will eventually become more visible. Depending on the skin type, people with oily or combination skin tends to have larger pores compared to those with dry skin. This happens when there are excess oil produce by the skin which causes the pores to clog and enlarge its size. In some cases, large pores are also caused by heredity which is unfortunate.

Pores cannot be diminished completely as it is necessary for the skin to produce sweats and natural oils. They however can be minimized so that the skin will look younger and healthier. So here we listed our top favorites masks that will help you to minimize pores! Check them out down below!

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores

This mask from Origins is definitely one of people’s favorite! Its mixture of Activated Charcoal and White China Clay helps to keep the skin oil free by absorbing them. It also keeps the skin soft whilst minimizing the pores which will help to prevent future breakouts. The mask is best use after you cleanse your face with a lukewarm water to keep the pores open so that it’s easier for it to absorb all the impurities.

You can get Origins charcoal mask at our local Sephora stores which retails at RM120 for 100ml. But you can always buy the mask in pods which costs only RM16 for 10ml. It will definitely lasts you about 2 to 3 uses!

A lot of people rave about this skincare product and I can understand why! The winner of 22 Global Beauty Awards claims to do a 6-in-1 Pore care which helps to minimize pores, control sebum, exfoliate the skin, deep cleansing, brighten the skin tone and has a cooling effect. What more can you ask for in a mask right? In addition, the mask is affordable compared to some other clay masks.

You can get it for only RM52 for 100ml at Hermo. And psstt, in case you’re not aware, Hermo’s currently having a sale this mask where you can get an RM14 off! So make sure to check this clay mask out because it’ll definitely worth your money!

I first heard about this Korean brand from the best beauty Youtuber, Michelle Phan. She claimed that this mask did wonders to her skin and the size of her pores reduced tremendously. Well, I agree 100% (I always do when it comes to her lol)! The bentonite in the clay helps to purify the skin and tighten the pores while the menthol in it gives cooling effect to sooth the skin. So what makes this mask even better you ask? Well, it’s formulated without paraben or any other harmful chemicals! Yay, major thumbs up for that!

Currently, you can get this mask as a duo pack for only RM131 in our local Sephora stores. Mind you that this mask is one of their best sellers, so you might just want to head out and buy them before they run out of stocks!

Well, this mask can be quite up there in the price but if you do have some extra money, then I don’t see any reasons why you can’t splurge it for your skin. It’s a good investment, I promise. Glamglow produces masks like no other. It consists of magic ingredients which helps to minimize pores, fight breakouts and other skincare problems. A lot of top beauty Youtubers swear by this product including Jaclynn Hill, Tati Westbrook and even Kathleen Lights. So I bet this mask really work wonders, right?

You can get this Supermud Clearing Treatment for RM285 at our local Sephora stores. They do have other choices as well but this one stands out the most and thus, the reason why I recommend it to you guys 🙂

Homemade Egg Mask

If you’re out of budget but you still want to have flawless skin, then you can always opt for homemade masks! Just mix an egg, some plain yogurt and lemon juice together and voila! You get yourself a mask that will help to minimize the pores, brighten the skin and moisturize it. If you have dry skin, then you can skip egg yolk and just use egg white instead. Just apply the mask on your face for 15-20 minutes and rinse it off afterwards. You can do it as frequently as you like because the ingredients are all organic. Your skin will thank you later!
