1/9Don't believe these myths about those pores on your skin
Myth: Your pores can open and close: We're sure your neighbourhood parlour aunty must have told you multiple times that when you expose your face to steam it helps open up your pores and when you splash cold water on your face it closes up your pores. This most definitely is not true. Pores do not open up or close. Exposing them to steam only helps loosen all the dirt and grime stuck to them, and that's why once you wash your face after steaming it, the pores appear cleaner and smaller.
