DIY gelatin facial pore strips
I spotted this diy awhile back describing how you could make your own pore strips using two ingredients: unflavored gelatin and milk. Make your own Biore-esque strips at home? The idea sounded so strange that I had to give it a try.
- 1T Unflavored Gelatin
- 1.5- 2 T Milk
(1) I combined the ingredients into a paste
(2) Then, I microwaved the paste for 10-15 seconds
(3) I used a plastic spoon to quickly stir the goo and then slathered it onto my face
(4) I waited ten minutes and then voila! I was like an aging starlet who just got botoxed.
And then came the difficult part. Pulling everything off was extremely painful.
Bottom line: I think I'll just stick to eating gelatin and not wearing it.
Have you tried any diy beauty recipes lately?
