DIY Pore Strips To Remove Blackheads


  • 1 Tablespoon Good Quality Gelatin
  • 1.5 Tablespoon Dairy (Milk, Yogurt, or Kefir — I prefer kefir)*


  1. Mix ingredients in a pot.
  2. Heat on low heat for a few minutes until the gelatin has dissolved.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool if needed. But not cool enough to gel the gelatin, just cool enough to not burn your skin.
  4. Apply a thin layer on your face anywhere you want to clean your pores. I usually do my forehead, chin, and nose. I use a plastic spoon to spread the mix. You can also use a clean makeup brush.
  5. Let sit for 10-15 minutes. I usually oil pull while I’m waiting.
  6. Peel the strips off.


  • *If your kefir or yogurt is very thick, you can mix it with milk to get the desired consistency.
