DIY Beauty: Blackhead Removal

DIY Beauty: Blackhead Removal

We all get them and none of us like them. I have a habit of trying to squeeze them out with my fingers and I know that is not a good practice. Recently I learned about the power of gelatin to remove those unsightly little blackheads. Use this below mixture and you will never buy over the counter pore strips again.

Ingredients: DIY Blackhead Removal  

1 teaspoon of unsweetened gelatin
1 teaspoon of your choice of milk. (Almond, Soy, Whole Milk, Etc)

Combine the ingredients in either a microwave safe dish or in a double boiler. Stir the mixture until it is well combined and heat them in the microwave or on the stove top. If electing to use the microwave, I suggest you heat the mixture in 10 second intervals. You want the mixture to be warm and not hot so you do not burn yourself. Please use caution before applying to your skin.

Clean your face first to remove all dirt. Use either your fingers or a small spatula to apply the mixture to the desired area that you want to remove the blackheads. I was able to do my entire face being sure to stay away from the eye, mouth and nostril areas. You do not want to put the mixture near areas were the skin is thin. Let the mixture harden on your face for about 15-20 minutes and peel off to see the magic happen. Rinse your face with cool water to close your pores and rub gently with a washcloth to remove any gelatin residue. Your face will feel like a baby’s bottom for the next few days and be blackhead free.
