Generally the starlets begin their red carpet beauty regimen about a week before the Oscars. Treatments like "extractions", an esthetician squeezing out black heads, can leave the skin looking a little bruised, red and irritated. While extractions are ultimately good for the skin, the short term effects can resemble unwanted blemishes.
I know we're a little behind schedule but here is a home treatment for deep cleaning your pores. It works like those pore cleaning strips you find at the drugstore, but all you need is:
1 Tablespoon Knox unflavored gelatin
1-1/2 Tablespoons of milk
- Mix the above ingredients and microwave them for 10 seconds. You want the mixture to be slightly warm.
- Apply the warm mixture onto your nose and chin using a clean cosmetic brush or small spatula. You know to avoid the delicate eye area, but I got to say it just in case.
- Rinse brush immediately.
- Allow mixture on nose and chin to dry for 10-15 minutes. Kick back on the sofa and relax while it dries into a stiff film.
- Peel off the film and marvel at all the gunk that was clogging your pores.
You might want to cool your skin with a cool compress after peeling off the masque. Have fun.
