Make Your Pores Behave

By: Natalie Katsman

Smooth and soft skin, even tone, rosy glow, pores invisible to the naked eye... Perfect complexion. Isn't that what we hope to see when coming to the mirror?

But the reality is harsh and mirrors don't lie. The pores are there, perfectly visible, and seem to get bigger and bigger.

Why would Mother Nature put the most visible ones where you can't hide them? Life would be so much easier if we could keep them out of sight (and out of mind). I bet Nature had no idea people would consider pores a problem and, of course, had the best reasons in mind.

Pores are tiny (oh well, comparatively tiny) passages for oil that is produced in sebum glands to reach the surface of the skin. There are approximately 300 000 oil glands in human skin, the highest concentration is on the face, chest and back. The glands produce up to one ounce of oil daily!

The oil forms a protective layer over the skin that prevents moisture loss and helps to keep the skin soft and resilient and prevent injury and environmental damage. Given the fact that skin on the face is thinner than in other body areas and is constantly exposed to sun, wind, cold and heat, we desperately need this protection.

The challenge is to maintain the right balance between the activity of sebaceous glands and the actual needs of your skin. Problems start when pores have to deal with more oil than they can handle. Pores expand under the pressure of excessive oil flow and become visible. Once they enlarge, they don't shrink back. There are no muscles around pores that could contract and close the opening.

More and more pores can become visible with age. This is due to the loss of skin elasticity and sagging. As skin is drawn down by gravity, pores become more obvious.

Keeping pores clean is the first thing you need to do if you want to make them less noticeable and prevent their size increase.

When oil binds with dirt and dead skin cells, pores become clogged and - again - stretch. To prevent this, keep oil under control, use gentle and effective cleansers and exfoliate regularly.

After cleansing, use astringent toner. Astringents cause slight swelling of the top skin layer, which temporarily closes pores. There are two things to be cautious about. First, don't overdry your skin or it will react by producing even more oil. Second, if your skin is sensitive, be extra careful as it might not tolerate some of the ingredients used in astringents.

Mature skin will benefit from thorough cleansing and gentle exfoliating followed by a face-lift mask. When done 1-3 times a week, this regiment will produce visible improvement in just a few weeks.

The pores don't shrink permanently. We have to accept it, just as we accept that fair eyelashes can't get dark and straight hair don't curl. Yet, we learned to live with it and still get the look we want. The same thing is with pores: you can improve the way they look when and if you want to.

Also try biore pore strips they work great to get all that stuff out of pores

For a toner/astringent try lemon juice with a cotton ball once daily great for acne acne scars oily skin and pores

Blackhead Mask
1/2 cup of lemon juice
4 drops of lavendar oil
1 tsp.olive oil or coconut oil
1/2 cup of crushed oats
1 Tbsp.baking soda
4 Tbsp. of grated apple
Mix it all together and apply evenly over your skin, leave to dry then wash off throughly. Amazing stuff, give it a try. You'll LOVE the result! (It also works wonders all over your body)

Make a paste of oatmeal or almond and apply it on the face.

Mix either oatmeal or almond powder with rose water to make a soft paste that spreads easily on the skin. Rub it on skin with fingertips especially on the affected areas. Leave to dry for about 15 minutes and then wash off with cold water.

Prepare a paste of fresh methi (fenugreek) leaves and apply it over the face every night for 10-15 minutes and washed with warm water. This is an effective home remedy for blackheads and will prevent acne, pimples, blackheads, and wrinkles.

A solution made of one and a half cups of hot water and half a tablespoon of boric powder is a very good home remedy for blackheads.

Extract juice of one lemon and mix with equal quantity of rose water. Apply this mixture on the face and keep it for about half an hour. Wash the face with fresh water. About 15 days application helps cure acne, pimples and reduces blemishes and scars.

Apply undiluted lemon juice, two to three times a day, on the affected areas.

Nettle Tea is another remedy, this tea has a herb that has some curing power and really helps work wonders on skin problems.

Take some Ground drumstick pods and leaves and mix with fresh limejuice, and apply on pimples. This is also good for blackheads and dark spots.

Warm a little honey and apply on the blackhead areas. Wash off after 10-15 minutes.

Fresh mint juice is also very effective home remedy for skin troubles. Apply this on the face every night for the treatment of all kinds of skin diseases such as acne, pimples, insect stings, eczema, scabies, & other skin infections.

Prepare a mixture of 1 or 2mls each of the following: witch hazel, tea-tree and sweet fennel essential oils, adding essential oil of geranium for women and essential oil of rosewood for men. Mix with 300mls of water. Shake before use, as the oils will float on top of the water during storage.

How does ceramic sintering alter a materials properties and the way it behaves? How can it alter a materials properties and the way it behaves? Also does this process affect the crystal structure and atomic structure of the material?

Douglas Williams

Admin 20.02.2013. 12:56

When a ceramic is sintered, the powder is heated and compressed and becomes a solid shape. So it would alter the materials properties and behavior, as instead of the material being a powder, it is now a solid object. Sintered ceramics tend to be be very brittle, and some are extremely hard and heat resistant. During the sintering process, the particles that make up the powder become fused together. This is the bond that is formed. Sintered materials are usually glazed, as the ceramic has pores in which can let in moisture or other chemicals which could reduce the life of the product. I don't know if it affects the actual atoms themselves though, though I would have thought not. Hope this is of help.

My face is basically ruining my life, how can i get it to behave properly? So my face is basically crap. It keeps getting breakouts and acne and i have bad pores to.

It happens whenever i always have something important to do. Its like my face wants me to be a failure at life. Ive been using acne treatment cream and other stuff but its not working. My face still breaks out.

I try using makeup but it doesn't really cover it and my face still looks like crap.

Help im really desperate.

How can climate science claim to predict the fate of the polar ice sheets and glaciers? when we do not really understand the substance that they are made of?



Dr. Bartels-Rausch's "Ten things we need to know about ice and snow":

How does ice form? Much about how and when water freezes is still unclear, even though this is essential for understanding Earth's climate and water cycle. We cannot predict with certainty when and where ice clouds will form in the atmosphere; areas of the sky remain humid when we would expect them to freeze.
How does ice structure change? As pressure and temperature vary, the water molecules adapt their arrangement to minimize energy, producing the different phases of ice. Next, we need to be able to reproduce the molecular processes in those transitions in computer simulations or quantum-chemistry calculations over the whole temperature and pressure range.
How do different ice structures behave? In addition to ordered crystals, ice also comes in amorphous and 'metastable' forms ? molecular arrangements that are long lived but not at minimum energy. This structural variety widens the possibilities for how readily ice crystals form, the chemical reactivity of ice clouds, how impurities are captured in comets, and the mechanical strength of icy bodies in space. Yet we know little about how these ices are structured, whether they mix with crystalline ice and where they occur.
What is the surface structure of ice? Molecular order breaks down at crystal surfaces. We need to know the most essential things about this layer, such as its molecular structure and how that changes with temperature.
Where do impurities lie within ice? In the upper atmosphere and in space, water ice is often mixed with carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane, sulphuric acid and nitric acid. Ice on the Earth's surface holds chemicals from sources such as sea salt, dust and pollution. But we don't know how these impurities are mixed in with the ice, or whether different types of ice, such as soft snow and compacted glaciers, hold contaminants in similar ways.
How do reactions proceed in ice? At the South Pole, reactions of nitrous oxides released from snow produce enough ozone to raise the local concentration to levels seen in industrial areas. In the Arctic, mercury ions deposited from the atmosphere into the snow cover are chemically converted before being released back to the air.
Are there pockets of liquid in ice? Brine fills the pores and channels in sea ice, and sea salt in snow and impurities along grain boundaries in glacial ice can cause local melting to form internal pools. The presence of liquid changes the fate of impurities and the phase stability of ice, but in environmental ice we do not know how much liquid is trapped or where it is held.
How do physical processes affect ice impurities? Chemicals from the atmosphere are absorbed rapidly by snow and creep deeper into glacial ice over centuries, altering the chemistry of air, snow and ice over time. Fluctuations in the levels of slowly diffusing pollutants, such as fluorides and methanesulphonates, complicate the dating of the environmental record from ice cores.
How does ice growth affect impurities? Water molecules in the surface layers of ice and snow are continually evaporating and re-freezing. During the course of a day, as temperatures cycle between warm and cold, up to 60% of the molecules can be redistributed. How do impurities respond when the shape, surface area and volume of the ice changes so drastically?
How long will ice last? Satellite data indicate that the Arctic perennial sea-ice cover is declining by around 10% per decade. Glacier shrinkage at the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets is accelerating. Our understanding of the observations is insufficient for us to predict the rate at which snow and ice could disappear from our planet in this century.

"As you can see, Dr. Bartels-Rausch's list is long and diverse, ranging from the fundamental ?how does ice form? to the hypothetical ?how long will ice last?? The complexity of ice's interaction with the environment and its connection to other factors involved in climate change are obvious. Our ignorance in the face of that complexity should be humbling to any who would prattle on about ?settled science.? The suggested palliative? Greater interdisciplinary study and more funds for fundamental, laboratory-based experiments?what researcher doesn't think he is underfunded?

The fact remains that after more than 30 years of modeling we still cannot accurately predict cloud formation. We bemoan human air pollution while Antarctic ozone approaches industrial levels naturally. Most telling of all, our current level of knowledge is insufficient for us to predict what will happen to our planet's snow and ice cover. The article is unequivocal: ?Without knowing more about how

They can't predict the climate. They've tried and failed miserably with their climate models and keep changing their projections and even concoct theories that contradict their own AGW theories. Climates always change and always will change.

can you use new skin liquid bandage to cover large pores on your face? does this work? if you wear makeup over it will the makeup look shiny?

a_thom32

Admin 03.09.2009. 14:22

Yes. But only because you can do anything you want.

However, it will peel and you will look like an idiot.

Get the liquid bandage and wear it on your arm for a day - preferably around the wrist where the skin bends and moves. Watch how it behaves. You don't want that on your face.

Plus, your pores need to breathe. Covering them up will only invite worse problems.
