Egg White Face Peel
1 egg white
1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar
Whip egg white and lemon together. Mixture should be thin.
Start with a clean face, this will help the mixture stick better. Apply on whole face, avoiding eye area. Allow to set for 20-30 minutes. Begin peeling from forehead down. Peel off as much as you can, and remove the rest with a wash cloth and warm water. After you have completely removed the mask be sure to wash your face with your favorite cleanser and follow up with a good moisturizer.
Gelatin Face Peel
1 Tbsp. of Knox unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 Tbsp. milk
Microwave for 10 seconds and apply to face. Let it dry for 30 minutes (will dry very stiff). Peel it off. Rinse face with cool water. Pat dry.
Now, you may not want to admit it, but I am sure some of you are guilty of trying these next two suggestions already. Elmer's glue and regular old scotch tape. You can use either one to spot treat but I would recommend the glue for larger areas. I also think the glue is more effective than the tape... either way, start with a clean face, and be sure to wash and moisturize afterward.
This one may sound funny, but it really does work. Get a good quality clear tape. I Sotch Tape is ok but I would go with the shiny kind over the matte finish, the adhesive seems to stick to the skin better.
Be sure to thoroughly wash and dry your face before applying the tape to any blackhead problem areas. The dirt and oils on our unwashed skin will prevent the tape from sticking to the blackheads. Press the tape firmly and allow it to sit for a few seconds, pressing a few times to ensure full contact with the skin. Then pull it off quickly.
This method is particularly fun for those of you who may be interested in seeing what kind of gunk came out of your pores.
I definitely recommend the geltain face peel over the egg white. You get more consistent and peelable results. The egg whites can be difficult to get it to peel. I usually have to just scrub it off which defeats the blackhead removing qualities but it still gives you a nice tightening effect.
