Thursday--Spa Day

I love when I find a recipe for a skin care product I use frequently, but find very expensive.  One of these things is the Biore pour strips -- very expensive but necessary!  Imagine my excitement when I found this recipe and tried it, only to discover that this works just as good if not better and only costs pennies!  That to me is a miracle in the making.  So, here is the recipe.  Try it, you'll like it!

Homemade Biore Pore Strips

Make your own homemade pore strips, similar to Biore
After a week of wearing makeup,  washing your face, moisturizing your face, and slathering all sorts of things all of it, a homemade pore cleanser can be the perfect remedy for big, clogged pores and lackluster skin.  The homemade pore strip is a quick homemade beauty remedy that is easy to make and will yield wonderful results.
  • 1 Tbsp Knox Unflavored Gelatin
  • 11/2 T Milk
  • Makeup brush (preferably large eye shadow bristle brush)
  • Water
  • Witch Hazel or Toner
  1. Mix milk and gelatin in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 10 seconds.
  2. Using a clean make-up brush, apply thin layer of water and Gelatin mask to problematic areas, staying clear of the eye area. 
  3. Let mask dry for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Gently tear off film once it's hardened.
  5. Rinse off skin areas, making sure to remove any excess film.
  6. Follow by applying a toner or witch hazel
