Black heads are the worst, aren’t they? They are annoying and so hard to get rid of, and pore strips can be pricey. In this post I am going to give you a recipe to make your own pore strips for merely pennies!
What you will need: 1 Tablespoon Unflavored Gelatin, 1 1/2- 2 Tablespoons Milk. That’s it! I’m not even kidding. It is that simple.
Step 1: Mix all of the ingredients together until you have a pretty smooth texture. Add more milk if you do not like the texture. I recommend warming your mixture up so that when you apply it your pores will open up.
Step 2: Apply the mixture to your problem areas. You can apply it to your whole face if you feel the need. I tend to focus on my nose and chin, but everyone is different. Be sure to apply the mixture quickly, because it will start to firm up and be harder to apply. Just a little warning, the mixture smells a bit funny in the beginning because of the milk, but after a little while you get used to it.
Step 3: Wait. You have to wait until the mixture hardens of your face and makes it nearly impossible to smile or make any facial gesture. It is actually pretty funny to watch someone who has this mask on try and talk or do anything that requires facial movement.
Step 4: Start peelin’! This is the most fun and gross part of the whole experience. Start wherever you want and just pull the mask off. As you pull It off you will start to see little black dots in the strips you remove. Yes, that is dirt coming out of your pores! Just think of all the dirt residing in your pores right now. Kinda makes you want to whip up a batch of this mask, doesn’t it?
After you have peeled off the entire mask, go wash your new baby-soft face. I always feel so refreshed after using this mask, and I know you will too!
