A Happy Heart: A Clean Little Face

We have a new beauty consultant in our home right now. 

Her name is Ms. Hannah. 

She loves trying new things, and this week we have all been her guinea pigs.

And it has been quite fun being a guinea pig.

The other night Charity, Luke and Lucy got the spa facial treatment. They thought it was quite hilarious.
And I have to admit.....so did I.

Luke couldn't keep the cucumber on his face.

Then Hannah made homemade pore strips. 
She got the recipe from here.
I'm always wary of homemade recipes, but this, 
ladies and gentlemen, is the REAL deal.
It worked so well, I thought I'd post it in case someone else wants a face that feels like a baby's soft little tush.

Here's what you will need.

 Pore Strip Ingredients:
1 Tablespoon Unflavored Gelatin
1 1/2 to 2 Tablespoons Milk

That's it!
So easy!

1. Measure 1 Tablespoon of unflavored gelatin into a disposable container.
2. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of milk into the gelatin.
3. Until it looks like this.
4. Mix it up, and be quick about it, until you get a chunky consistency. Add more milk if you're uncomfortable with the amount of chunk.

Microwave the gelatin mixture for about 10-15 seconds. It will get creamier in the microwave.

Don't forget to microwave it.
It will look like this.

After you microwave it, stir it well and start applying it IMMEDIATELY to your face. This stuff hardens up fast so you've got to act fast.

If you are attached to your eyebrows, DO NOT get this on them. 
You will be saying goodbye to them until they grow back! :)

You can put it all over your face, but if you have tender skin, I would suggest only the problem areas. 

 Let dry for 15+ minutes. When it says that it dries and gets hard, they aren't kidding. You'll know when it's done when you go to smile and it feels like your face is going to break!

We also learned the hard way that it really isn't a good idea to have a really hearty gut giggle while this goo is on your face.

Not. a. good. idea.

After it is completely dry, grab a spot and start peeling it off.


Clean, dirt-free, smooth-as-a-baby's-tush soft.

I don't know the last time my face was that clean.

Big Daddy and the boys are next.
.....they just don't know it yet.

hee hee hee.

Today, homemade pore strips make my heart happy.
