Making your own beauty products makes a lot of sense because DIY products cut down costs significantly.

Pores are a common problem and pore strips are easily available. However, pore strips are pretty expensive. To make things easier on your pockets, why not make your own pore strips? A few ingredients already present in your kitchen are all that you need!

You will need:

  1. Unflavored gelatin: 1 tbsp.
  2. Milk: 1 tbsp.
  3. Microwavable container: 1 [small sized]
  4. Flat makeup brush


  1. Add the gelatin and milk together in the container.
  2. Stir thoroughly so that the gelatin dissolves. Now mirocwave it for around five seconds. Pause a moment and microwave it again for five more seconds.
  3. Put the mixture aside so it cools. It should only be slightly warm. Now with the makeup brush, first test it on your arm so you know how hot or warm it is.
  4. Apply it onto your nose when it reaches the right temperature. Let it stay for ten minutes and then peel it off.
  5. Wash your face. Pat dry.
