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.
- 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.
