Gelatin Powder (100 Gm)
Here is what you will need to mix your own gelatin face mask: Pure Food/Cosmetic Grade Gelatin.Whole or 2% milk. Really any type of milk will work, but the more fat and lactic acid the better. That is why we suggest whole milk. Measuring spoons Small microwave-safe bowl or cup Honey (optional) Old makeup brush (optional) Next Measure 1 tablespoon of gelatin into your microwave-safe bowl or cup. Add 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix well until the gelatin takes on a thick, goopy, glue-like consistency. Microwave the mixture for 15 seconds. Remove the bowl or cup from the microwave. Be careful, it may be hot. Test the temperature by sticking a finger or two into the gelatin. It should be warm to the touch but should not be so hot that it burns. At the same time, it shouldn’t be too cool or the gelatin won’t set up right. If the mixture is too hot, let it cool before testing it again. If the mixture is too cool, microwave it in five-second intervals until it’s just right. Optional: Stir in 1 tablespoon of honey. Be sure to mix well so the honey is completely dissolved. When the mixture becomes thick and goopy again, it is time to apply it to your face. Using your fingers or an old makeup applicator spread the gelatin mask all over your face. Avoid your eyebrows, the skin around your eyes, directly on your lips, and anywhere that you have hair you do not want ripped out. Remember, peeling off a gelatin mask can be like waxing your face so apply accordingly. Let the mixture dry for fifteen minutes. Once the allotted time has passed, start at the bottom (you jawbones and your chin) and peel the mask upward. When you are finished, you can rinse off any excess with lukewarm water. It is recommended to not use any cleanser at this point as it may irritate the tender skin. Finish the process by splashing your face with cool water.
