So, you know those Biore Facial Strips? You know, the ones that are supposed to suck out all the yucky stuff from your face? The ones that cost $12.84 for 24 on Amazon.
Well, I saw on Pinterest that you can do the same thing with gelatin and milk. Really? I was seriously doubtful about this one. I haven’t purchased pore strips since before I was married, and probably wouldn’t now. As I was doing some baking, I noticed some gelatin that has been sitting in my spice cabinet for…a long time. I thought, what the heck! I can try this.
Here is the recipe:
1 tsp. gelatin
1 1/2 tsp. milk
Microwave for 10-12 seconds.
Be smart. Don’t put the HOT mask on your face. It will burn. I will not take responsibility for anyone’s burnt face. Use discretion. Wait for it to cool a bit.
Wah-lah! Sorry, ladies. If you thought you would get a before and after pictures of my face with the pore strips, you have another think coming!
But, it really worked. I didn’t think it would. But it did. I didn’t use all of the mixture, so when you make it be prepared to share. Also, since gelatin comes in a lot less than Biore strips, I think it is a save!!
Another Pinterest success. It would be fun to have a girl’s beauty night: DiY Lip Balm, DiY Face Serem, and DiY Facial Pore Strips. Add a little nail polish and some chocolate…seriously, who wants to host?
