Homemade Blackhead Removing Strips

contest winner icon

Here is a simple way to make your own blackhead removing strips. I used to spend $10 per box (which lasted me 2 weeks) for many, many years.



  • 1 tsp. unflavored gelatin powder
  • 1.5 tsp. any type of milk


Mix together gelatin and milk in a small bowl then microwave it for 10-15 seconds. Make sure it's not scalding, then apply a thin coat on to your nose or your T-zone with your fingers. Wait 10 minutes until the mixture dries completely. The gelatin is opaque when wet, and will be translucent when dry. Carefully peel the gelatin strip off your nose. Blackheads and dirt will stick to the gelatin, clearing your pores!

Note: if you don't like the smell of warm milk, try adding a drop of essential oil!
