Gelatin for Blackheads. Does It Work?

Sharing is caring!

20160326_095207 My nose is a problem area for me so I have been looking for solutions to get rid of blackheads in that area. In my research I ran across a lot of posts on gelatin for blackheads so I decided to try it out. It’s only two ingredients.


1 Tbsp Gelatin

1 1/2 Tbsp Milk


I mixed the gelatin and milk together. I only had almond so I tried using it hoping I’d get the same results. I place the gelatin mixture in the microwave for 15 seconds. When it’s ready, I mixed it well and applied immediately to my face. It smells pretty bad but it’s unnoticeable after a few minutes. I let it sit on my face for 15 minutes (or until dry). My face became very stiff. Once dry I tried moving every muscle in my face to make it easier to peel off. 20160326_095457


After I peeled the gelatin mask off my face my face was very smooth. I noticed more fine hairs on the strips than blackheads but I did see some blackheads on the strips. So, does it work? Yes but I think it left some blackheads behind. I like how my face felt afterwards so I’d probably try it again. At least until I use up all the gelatin I already have.
