Tell me YOUR favorite quick tips

A few of you have mentioned wanting to add some tips to the repertoire, so here's your chance. Leave them here. If there's one you've heard of but you're not sure about, let me know, and I'll try to test it out and report back. I love research--especially this kind!

Is there any chance you know of a natural way to shrink your pores?

I loved the sugar idea for exfoliation, but my face needs another step beyond that one.

I have been looking for a natural alternative for a while now. I heard lemon juice and honey would do it, but I was so afraid of the mess that I have not tried it lol.

Hi Connie!

I don't know of a natural way right off the top of my head. Generally, I would suggest an AHA/BHA treatment. That being said, I will be on the lookout for ways to shrink your pores with things you probably already have around the house.

The honey and lemon thing does sound messy! LOL I just might try it though and report back. The pores on my nose and a few on my cheeks could stand to shrink a little!

I found another mask that claims to shrink your pores at

Unfortunately, I can't try this one out and report back because I have a tendency to get eczema on my face. Tomato and lime would definitely cause a flare-up for me. :(

If you're not sensitive to those, try them out. I'd love to hear how it works for you.

;Tomato and lime does sound a bit intimidating, but my face is so oily sometimes that it just might be exactly what I'm looking for.

I really appreciate the research!If I do get to try it, I'll come back and let you know.

Wow, thank you so much for referring me to that site, they have tons of stuff. I am going to try the olive oil vinegar night treatment as well.

Vinegar Night Cream

"Mix ½ cup of olive oil with ¼ cup apple cider vinegar and ¼ water. Use this instead of a commercial night cream. The olive oil provides moisture for your skin, while the vinegar takes care of dead skin cells, skin discolorations, and bacteria."

Although I think I will try it in smaller portions first, good olive oil is expensive lol.

You're welcome!

I know, I could get lost on that site! LOL So much good stuff.

And you're right about the olive oil! Too bad because sometimes I want to use it on my hair, body, face, salad... :)
