There’s nothing worse than when your skin is clogged, dirty, and disgusting. I feel dirtier overall, and I don’t feel like I’m putting my best face forward.
Because of this, I’m taking more time caring for my skin. Once or twice a week, I dedicate some of my time to getting all the gunk out of my pores.
How, you ask? Well, with an at-home facial, of course. With just a few ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, you can make a peel-off mask that does a ton for you skin.
Here’s what you’ll need, and what each ingredient does:
- unflavored gelatin: this is what grabs on to the nasty stuff in your pores and “rips” them out. Mixed with the milk, it forms a paste that adheres to the skin.
- milk of choice: depending on what milk you use, this has moisturizing and calming properties. It also forms the paste that acts as the main base of the mask.
- honey: honey has antibacterial properties as well as humectant properties– meaning it will cleanse the skin all the while keeping moisture within the surface layers.
- tea tree oil: much like honey, tea tree oil has properties that are antibacterial. In addition, it helps balance oil production in the skin and gives the skin a nice cooling feeling.
For exact amounts used, watch the video below. Just make sure to form a paste that is mid-thickness, and only use 2-4 drops of the tea tree oil.
Now, using a brush or your hands, apply the mask to your skin.This should take 20-30 minutes to dry down. Once dry, start from the bottom of the face and begin to pull upwards.
Peel off the entirety of the mask, then wash your face and continue with any other steps in your skincare routine. You should notice how baby-smooth your face is!
