DIY : Homemade Pore Strips

Blackheads I hate you. Warning : this entry contains lotta picha of my wide nose.

I’m having blackheads on my nose and I believe it is a very common problem to most of us. Blackheads are a mixture of sebum, blood and lymph fluid. These are the cause of the pores to be hardened and blocked the exit.
take a look, my nose with black head on it
So I’m going to show you how to make home made pore strips using 2 basic ingredients. To success, you will need:
·                        A clear gelatin
·                        Milk/soy power
·                        A small bowl
·                        A clean paint/makeup brush

Now let's get started. :)
Add 1 teaspoon of clear gelatin into a bowl.Add same amount of milk/soy powder into the bowl.
Mix ingredients and add hot water (not boil water) and stir until the mixture become wax and turn into a light yellowish-brown color. If you notice that the mixture are quite dry, added another couple drops of hot water into the mixture.
You need to wait the mixture to cool down a bit and take your brush. I applied the mixture to my nose, but you can apply this to anywhere you feel your pores could benefit like chin, cheeks or between your brows.
Then, rinse your brush immediately. If you don't, it will turn into a sticky, gluey mess. Allow the mixture to dry for about 10 minutes or so.
Mixture will dry quite stiff and form a "stiff film". Now its time to peel off. The strips came off so easily, no pulling hard or pain on 1 side of my nose but the other side a bit hard because I have piercing stud. Haha. But hey it did a fantastic job picked up the dirty blackheads.

Now you can make your own pore strip at home too. It is easy, convenience and effective. For me, it's better than store bought pore strips because I found that:
  • It doesn't hurt your skin because it's not like glue.
  • It’s natural. No harmful chemical ingredients at all.
  • It reaches all the hard to reach areas on your face.
