DIY - Home Made Pore Strips

I've found myself in a familiar situation one too many times. I go to use a pore strip, to find an empty box! This has happened way too regularly for me, so I set myself a task to find an alternative. After searching google for a while, I found a couple of ways to make a DIY pore strip. I tried out both methods but this one worked out best for me so I figured I'd share it with you all.



It's really simple to make and use, and you probably already have the ingredients at home.

You will need:
Milk (any kind of milk will work)
Gelatine
Old makeup brush
Bowl
Microwave



Take a table spoon of gelatine and place into a bowl.


Add a tablespoon of milk


Mix milk and gelatine together to create a lumpy paste.


Microwave the mix for 10 seconds. Don't allow it to go over the 10 seconds or it will burn.


Allow to cool for a few seconds, and then test the mixture on the back of your hand to ensure it's not too hot. Pop an old makeup brush into the gelatine/ milk and mix it.


Once it's cool enough that it wont burn your skin, brush on a thin layer of the mixture to your problem areas. Allow to dry. When it's not sticky to touch and feels hard, it's time to remove. Peel the pore strip off your face slowly. 

This diy home made pore strip definitely works. I'm not sure if you can see in this picture, but this is after use. You should be able to see the dirt and grime from my pores on this strip. I know it's gross, but I love seeing what it gets out of my skin. I'm weird :) 


If you try this out please let me know how it works for you :)
