1

Open Your Pores

The procedure begins with opening all your dirty pores in order to clean them completely. Run a wash cloth under hot water and press it onto your face. The water and steam will help open the pores and clean the dirt. Just ensure that the water isn't too hot.

2

Cleanse

Before continuing, wash your hands with soap and warm water. You don't want to touch your face with dirty hands. I strongly recommend a facial cleanser which suits your skin type for this step. Pour some cleanser on your palms, and massage the cleanser onto your face for 30 seconds in circular motions. Rinse with warm water. Remember, cold water closes pores while warm/hot water opens them. Using a towel, pat dry your face lightly.

3

Exfoliate

Mix two tablespoons of water with two tablespoons of sugar. Stir the two ingredients until they become a thin paste. Add half a tablespoon more of sugar to the paste and stir. Wet you palms and apply the paste onto your face. Divide your face into three parts: the left side of your face, the right side, and your forehead. Using your wet hands, massage the paste in circular motions for 1 minute on each part of the face. Rinse with warm water after exfoliating.

4

Tone

Cut a lemon in half and squeeze, collecting about 20 drops of fresh lemon juice. Dip your fingers into the freshly squeezed lemon juice and smear on your face, keeping it on for about 10 seconds. Lemon juice may cause burning, and if it does, keep it on only for 5 seconds. Don't forget to wash with warm/hot water. Don't dry yet.

5

Tone - Part 2

Using the already-squeezed lemon half, pour half a teaspoon of honey onto the cut side of the lemon. Smear the honey and lemon onto your face, massaging with circular motions onto your face for only 30 seconds. Wash with warm/hot water. Using a towel, pat dry your face.

6

Close the Pores

Turn off the warm/hot water and turn on the cold. Splash your face with cold water, trying not to touch your face completely. Get an ice cube from the freezer and rub it all over your face and neck. This will close all your pores. Pat dry your face and moisturize. If you're going to bed right after, pull your hair up.

7

Smile and Repeat

Repeat these steps daily, once or twice depending on your skin's condition. Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you're beautiful, because you are!

There you have it, 7 simple steps to clear skin! Remember that you won't see progress overnight. But follow them diligently and you will see an improvement. What other steps do you follow to keep your skin happy?

Thanks leyla for sharing beauty secret of yours

Pores don't open,nor close.They are not windows...

I have been doing this routine for three days now; my skin has cleared almost completely- my skin never clears up!! This is amazing- THANK YOU!

I have a really dumb question, but how do you repost??

This whole article is cringe worthy!!!! FALSE INFO. Sugar can make tiny micro tears in your skin which can lead to acne or bacteria getting in. Lemon juice ruins your skins ph level since it's too acidic for your skin. Also pores do not open or close. They may be more visible on some then others. Excess sebum in pores can also make them more visible
