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?


  1. ;) i'm glad the nyc shirts are getting mileage!! ;D

  2. Eastern estheticians Esthetician near me ​the healing powers of gemstones as the entire concept has originated from the Vedas concept in India. Shahnaz Husain taps into the mystical healing power of these gemstones as she incorporates them into her facial treatments, which are taught to many talented estheticians who then practice the treatment in their own salons.


Thanks for your comment!
