DIY Pore strips

This week I wanted to share DIY pore strips with you, I have seen so many different ways of doing this and figured I would share a few of them with you.

This first one is using glue, I'm sure if you have ever looked up DIY pore strips you've seen this method. What you do is apply glue, I use non-toxic Elmer's school glue, you just apply a thin layer of the glue around your nose and any where else you have pores you'd like to clean out. After you apply it to your face let it dry, this usely takes no more then five minutes but can take up to ten depending on how thick you applied it. Once its dry you slowly and carefully pull it off.

For this one you need an egg and tissue paper; your going to want to separate the egg yolk and egg white. Save the egg yolk, it can be used afterwards or in your hair to add some extra moisture. All you do for this one is beat the egg white till its a bit frothy or has bubbles then you apply it like you apply the glue then you place a pre-cut piece of tissue paper on top of the egg, you could do this with the glue but it peels off better on its own then the egg does. Just like the glue you place it where you feel needs to be cleaned out and then you let it dry this does take a bit longer then the glue, and once its dry you carefully and slowly pull it off.

The last one I wanted to share with you uses gelatin, I personally have never tried this one but have heard great things about it. You need 1 tablespoon of plain gelatin and 1 tablespoons of milk, mix it, it will be chunky then you microwave it for 10 to 15 seconds, let it cool down so you don't burn yourself. This one applies just like the glue, you do the same method of removal, but this one may take the longest to dry.

After you do this make sure you apply a toner, using an ice cube and going over your pores to close them is another good thing to do after doing one of these.
