Super Quick Homemade Facial Peel!

by • March 1, 2013 • 6 Comments

For your peel you’ll need:

  • 1 packet plain gelatin (I used Knox brand)
  • 1 tbsp of milk (I used 1%)

Directions:gm

  1. Mix these two ingredients in a bowl or mug and microwave for 15 seconds.
  2. Let cool for 1-2 minutes then apply to your face.
  3. Leave on for 30 or so minutes or until completely dry (will feel almost like plastic)
  4. Now find a good “starting point” and being to slowly peel the mask off.

Be careful, this WILL hurt! Go slowly, avoid tearing the mask off of the hairy parts of your face (ie: eyebrows, sideburns, etc) Do not rip the mask off like a waxing strip or you run the risk of tearing a layer of your skin off!

NOTE: After it is microwaved, the gelatin mixture hardens very rapidly so work quickly with the mixture. Once you take it out of the microwave, let it cool JUST long enough so that it doesn’t burn your skin, then apply. The mixture will still be warm to the touch though. After you have peeled the mask off, your face will be slightly red but will feel smooth and supple!

Enjoy!

      Thank you so much! Had just gotten home from the gym when I filmed this. I thought my hair looked like a disaster! :D

    Is it the lactic acid in the milk that helps to peel off the first layer of skin?

    • Brown & Coconut says:

      You are exactly right! Lactic acid is a very gentle yet effective exfoliant as it dissolves dirt and dead skin cells to help smoothen out your complexion and keep your pores clear. The gelatin bonds to the dirt and debris that reside in your pores and extracts these impurities as you peel the mask off. This mixture is also a fantastic alternative to store-bought pore strips. Just apply the mixture to your nose or T-zone instead of doing an entire mask! :)
