Simple homemade peeling

May 5, 2010

This is a fantastic easy peeling that I took from Spa Index. It works the same way as those pore strips that you can buy.

You need

  • about half a tablet of gelatin
  • 1 tbs milk
  • (a few drops of essential oils – I like tea tree and ylang ylang)

Heat the ingredients in the microwave or in a water bath for a few seconds, just to melt the gelatin. If too warm, let cool until lukewarm. Then apply to areas in your face that are prone to acne, or to your whole face. Let it dry for about 10 minutes or until it’s completely dry.
You should then be able to peel off the gelatin in strips (if it doesn’t work, try applying a second layer and let dry).

I guess I don’t have to tell you (but I do anyway) that gelatin is made from animal skin and bones, and so if you’re a vegan you wouldn’t want to use this method. Also don’t be tempted to do this too often, twice a week max.
