If you have ever used peel off pore strips you know that they work well for removing blackheads and clearing up stubborn pores. The only problem is that they’re kind of expensive for a glorified sticker! I was playing around with the recipe for my DIY Blackhead Peel Off Mask today and discovered that this one little change can make a huge difference. This new recipe makes excellent DIY peel off pore strips.
Finally, a DIY peel off pore strip that you can actually PEEL OFF!
Stubborn blackheads, icky gunked up pores, and excess oil are all a thing of the past with just three simple ingredients. The difference between this recipe and some of the other ones you’ll find online is that it ACTUALLY works. Peel off pore strips don’t make sense if you can’t actually peel them off! The act of peeling them off your skin is what removes the blackheads and sticks to the clogged up pores. Without a formula that actually dries and creates a film that can be pulled off the process is pointless!
DIY Peel Off Pore Strips:
This recipe will make enough for two or three masks. You can adjust accordingly or make it with a friend! I’ve kept them for a few days covered up with cling wrap or press and seal as well.
Ingredients Needed for DIY Peel Off Pore Strips:
Directions for Making DIY Peel Off Pore Strips:
Empty the contents of the activated charcoal caps into a small dish or cup.
Add 1 Tbsp. of white school glue.
Add 1/2 Tbsp. of witch hazel.
Mix until smooth.
Let sit for about 5 minutes.
Mix again with brush or popsicle stick.
Apply to nose and other blackhead prone areas in thin layers.
Allow layers to dry only slightly, 30-45 seconds between layers.
Put on 3 to 4 layers or until there are no spots in the area that are uncovered.
Allow peel off pore strip to dry completely.
15 minutes should be enough time for the peel off pore strips to dry and then slowly peel off the strip.
Start at the edges and work inward to the nose and then pull off from top to bottom.
Go slowly when removing the strip to ensure blackheads are removed!
You should be able to see all the gross stuff on your peel off pore strips after use. The witch hazel will create a cooling sensation and help minimize pores in the process! You can see after just one coat the mixture will have little spots in it, the glue and the witch hazel don’t mix very nicely but adding the extra layers makes the strip sturdy enough to peel off in one full piece.
After use your skin should feel soft and smooth and pores will be visibly reduced and clear! This has quickly become my favorite new DIY peel off pore strips recipe. It’s the only one I have created thus far that actually works to remove blackheads and peels off properly.
