10 D.I.Y Beauty Tips – #3 PORE STRIPS

Pore strips are an absolute must for summery beautiful skin. If you tend to have blackheads, these are great for stripping those oils and dirt away and leaving your face looking much more clear and lovely. The best part about these strips? They are made with just 2 ingredients and 2 really cheap ingredients at that. You need a tablespoon of unflavored gelatin and milk. You can use any type of milk that you want, as long as it’s milk. That’s it. You just combine these two ingredients, apply to your face and let dry. Once it’s dry you can peel it off (think glue on your hands when you were younger) and the blackheads and pore cloggers will come with it.

Pore Strips Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon unflavored gelatin
1 1/2- 2 Tablespoons Milk {any kind}

PROCEDURE
1.Measure 1 Tablespoon of unflavored gelatin into a disposable container {if you put say, green jell-o on your face, there might be trouble}
2.Add 1-2 Tablespoons of milk into the gelatin
3.Until it looks wet chunky glue
4.Mix it up, and be quick about it, until you get a chunky consistency. Add more milk if you’re uncomfortable with the amount of chunk.
5.Microwave the gelatin for about 10-15 seconds. It will get creamier in the microwave. Stir that around and start applying it IMMEDIATELY to your face. This stuff hardens up fast so you’ve got to act fast.

APPLICATION
1. Wash your face before you apply

2. You can put it wherever your little heart desires. You need to act fast though, because this stuff turns to gelatin quickly. I know I’ve said that three times already, but I really mean it.
3.Let it dry for about 15+ minutes. I waited longer, but you’ll know it’s time when you can’t talk for fear of breaking something.
4.Grab whatever you can and start peeling. This is the gross/fun part.
