Full Answer

  1. Make the gelatin mixture

    Buy unflavored gelatin and any type of milk. Measure 1 teaspoon of the gelatin into a shallow, microwave-safe dish. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of milk. Mix the two ingredients thoroughly until you get a smooth paste.

  2. Heat the mask

    Put the dish into a microwave and heat it up for approximately 10 to 15 seconds. The mixture should be warm to the touch but not so hot that it burns your skin.

  3. Apply the mask

    While the mask mixture is still warm, use your fingers to apply it to your face. Create an even coat, avoiding the delicate skin around your eyes. Ensure total coverage for blackhead-prone areas such as the nose, forehead and chin. Allow the mask to dry completely.

  4. Peel the mask

    Use your fingers to peel the mask away from your skin, starting from the edges and working inward. Try to peel in a long, smooth motion. The mask pulls blackheads from your pores as you pull.
