3 DIY Peel off Masks for Blackheads that Will Kiss Them Goodbye

Blackheads are the most irritating thing on earth and if you’re tempted to peel them off every time you see them, go right ahead!


When excess sebum (oil produced by the sebaceous glands that keeps skin supple) gets trapped inside pores which are clogged by dirt, dead skin cells and other pollutants, it gives rise to blackheads. Mind you, they are not caused by surface dirt so scrubbing your face clean will only worsen your skin as this will only dry it further, causing moreoil production and hence more blockages…it’s a vicious cycle..

There are many treatments for blackheads but these can be expensive and usually involve a trip to the salon. The best way to remove blackheads is in the comfort of your homeand by making DIY pore strips and peel-off facial masks.  All you need is a few ingredients that are readily available in your kitchen and fifteen minutes!

Here are our top 3 DIY masks for Blackheads:

1. DIY Milk & Gelatine Peel-off Mask

Milk softens the skin while gelatine seeps into pores, eliminating blackheads from deep within. This mask also helps clear dead skin to reveal a brighter complexion.

Procedure:

  1. Mix 1 tablespoon each of milk and gelatine and stir until the lumps disappear.
  2. Microwave for around 5 seconds, stop, then repeat for another 5 seconds.
  3. Wait till it cools (test a bit on your hands before applying to face), then apply on your nose using a brush.
  4. Leave on for 10 minutes and then gently peel off from your nose.
  5. Wash your face.
