Homemade Blackhead Removal Pore Strips Mask

Post from: beautytips4her.com

Those of you who have only unpleasant memories about acne, but no longer deal with this infuriating condition, can consider yourself lucky. Sadly I am still looking for a way out and adult acne can be just as annoying as it was when I was only a teenager. Like if, blackheads were not enough, I have to deal with clogged pores as well and if it wasn’t for the pore strips, I don’t know what I would do. Although they don’t cost a fortune, I’ve been constantly searching for a way of further decreasing these expenses.


This is how I stumbled an idea about making your own pore strips, and it didn’t take long until I chose to put the idea to practice. The challenge was to get rid of both blackheads and the nasty effects of acne, so I had to think big and contemplate the opportunity of creating something that would look more like a whole face strip.

It is not as difficult as it sounds, and with inexpensive ingredients and only a couple of minutes invested, the results will meet and exceed your expectations.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 packet of unflavored gelatine
  • 2 tbsp of milk

Grab 1 tbsp of unflavored gelatin and put it in a microwavable dish or container, then add 2 tbsp of milk together. Pop the mixture in the microwave for 10-15 seconds and apply to it to the affected area using facial brush or a Popsicle stick. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes or until the mixture is totally dry. Gently peel off the pore strips and….

And be prepared to get grossed….


Applying the strips before the mixture solidifies is very important, so you need to act quickly and take advantage of those precious seconds between the concoction is ready and the time it gets unusable.

Once you apply it over your face or those areas where most blackheads are to be found, you need to patiently wait for roughly 15 minutes. Upon exfoliating, the sebum and dead skin cells that used to clog your pores will be removed and your skin will be once again silky smooth.

Tip: You can add 2 drops of essential oil of your choice. You can try Eucalyptus essential oil because of its anti acne and pore opening properties.

    Does, this also remove facial hair from the cheeks,chin,forehead….etc.? And what other type of Gelatine can be used, I cannot used animal Gelatien due to religious belifs.

  3. Calleigh says

    It’s better use for blackhead removal if applied properly. There are gelling agents sometimes called vegetable gelatin, such as pectin, derived from plants, although these are carbohydrate-based and not chemically related to animal gelatin.
    Or you can check my other post here : http://beautytips4her.com/diy-peel-off-mask-blackhead-removal/ – Basically, you will use egg white as the base to get rid of blackheads. Hope this helps.

    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
    some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, excellent blog!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
    Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!

  8. Calleigh says

    Gelatin is used as a thickener for fruit gelatins and puddings (such as Jell-O); in candies, marshmallows, cakes, ice cream, and yogurts.

    My husband uses those store bought nose strips. So I tried this on him tonight. It really did work and he was impressed with the results. But he was gagging most of the time because he said it smells. Can I add a drop or 2 of scented oil so he wont complain as much or will it be less affective??

    I needed something to get deep into my pores for blackheads, which seemed to never go away, also to control excess oil. The Citrus Clear Pore Mask did the trick! I was advised by a dermatologist that the mask does a wonderful job clearing blemishes. It helps control oil and shine even after going all day with a full face of foundation and concealers. I have combination skin and this mask doesn’t dry my skin out at all. It’s great for spot treatments too.
