Step 1: How to Make Charcoal Pore Strips

Do you have blackheads and/or acne? This recipe is the best for drawing out those pesky blackheads. The activated charcoal really helps to draw out the unwanted impurities on your skin. Watch for step by step instructions and demonstration.

DIY Blackhead Pore Strips Ingredients: -1 part unflavored gelatin -2 part water -0.5 part activated charcoal

Tools: -Warm wet wash cloth -Microwave -Stirring object -Paint brush

Steps: ~ Open your pores with a warm wet cloth. ~ Mix water and gelatin. ~ Microwave for 15-30 seconds (time varies depending on amounts used- you want the entire mixture to boil and bubble for a few seconds). Undercooking leading to brittle strips that rip easily during the peeling step. ~ Add charcoal and mix quickly. ~ When cool enough to stand paint onto skin. ~ Wait until completely dry. ~ Peel off and wash any residue with water.

Tip: -Make a large batch and use for your entire face!

Can you tell us how to make our own charcoal? Could I use charcoal from a fire pit if no chemicals were used??

AwesomeA (author)TaintedxxBright2015-07-17

Activated Charcoal is not the same as fireplace soot! I have researched how to make activated charcoal but it seems much too complicated to make at home.
