1 tbsp unflavored gelatin
1 tbsp milk


  • Mix gelatin and milk in a microwave safe bowl.
  • The mixture should not be dry, if so add another couple drops of milk into it.
  • Microwave on high for 10 seconds to warm the mixture.
  • Now the mixture has melted down making it much easier to mix and apply.
  • Apply it with the help of a brush wherever you feel your pores could benefit. Before moving to the next step wash your brush, if you don’t it will turn into a gluey mess.
  • Let it dry on your face for 10 minutes or so.
  • Strip it off after 10 minutes; it will come off easily without any pulling sensation and de-gunking your pores.
