I have blackheads all on my nose, and boy are they annoying. It seems like no matter what face wash I use, they will always be there. I found this and decided to try it and I love it. It really does clear up my skin.
Try a facial steam bath first (instructions below) then use the recipe, this will open up the pores as well as soften up the blackheads for easier removal.
1 TBS Unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 TBS Milk
- Mix together the gelatin and milk then heat in the microwave for about 12 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir with a wooden stir stick (a clean one!). Generously apply to problem areas on the face. Be careful not to apply too close to the eyes.
- Let completely dry (between 15 to 30 minutes) then carefully peel it off. The gunk clogging your pores will be stuck on the peel, the result is similar to the expensive removal strips you can buy.
- After removing the peel, wash face in very cold water to close the pores.
First wash your face with facial cleansing soap and water. Then fill a bowl with boiling water and place your face down close to the water to be near the heat. Cover your head with a towel to trap the steam around your face, stay put for about 10 minutes then make and apply the treatment peel above.
- Optional: Add tea bags or Epsom salt or dried lavender to the boiling water.
This actually worked really well! I suggest trying it!
