Yesterday, I decided that a bit of pampering was in order. I put on some relaxing music and started off by cleansing and exfoliating my face and then, I went on to steam it. This was followed by a not so pampering experience of peeling pore strips off my whole face.
Not to scare you or anything, but it was pain-FUL! So please don’t make the same mistake I made and just keep it to a minimum!
So why use pore strips?
Using pore strips is a quick and easy way to get rid of the dirt/oil in the pores that cause blackheads. This is one of my biggest beauty concerns. I’ve used these strips more than just a couple times and I’ve found that they do actually make a difference.
So if you’re looking for an inexpensive way to get rid of pore-clogging build up, then I suggest you give this a try! 🙂
- Get two spoons of unflavored gelatine
- Mix it with two spoons of milk
- Mix up an microwave for 10 seconds
- Using a foundation brush, apply to affected area, namely nose, chin / forehead
Let this set on your skin for about 10 minutes and when it dries up, let the peeling begin! Once you remove everything, you should be able to see the dirt/oil from your pores on the actual strips! I know, it’s disgusting – but at least it shows you did a good job!
Note: DO NOT make the mistake of putting it all over your face, it WILL BE painful! Just put it on certain parts of the face that need it. Also, don’t let it dry with a blow drier as it will get too dry and will be even more difficult to peel off.
