I was looking around for DIY facial peels since I didn't want to go out and spend money on mediocre masks with limited number of treatments.
I actually found a lot of recipes online, but for the most part the basic ingredients are:
- 1/2 Tbsp warm water
- 1/2 packet of plain unflavored gelatin
- 1/2 Tbsp aloe vera gel
- 1-2 drops essential oil of your choice
Wait for the mask to completely dry. You will tell when the mask is ready to peel when it's hard to move your face.
I recommend applying it in sections on your face instead of doing it all together. It makes it easier to peel. Also, make sure you avoid applying the gelatin mixture over hair, because it's like peeling duct tape off your face and it's going to hurt like hell.
Make sure you apply a toner or splash cold water onto your face after you peel off the mask. It will help close the vulnerable open pores.
If you want to use the gelatin mixture again, just put it in an airtight container, put it in the fridge, and you just warm it up in the microwave for 20 seconds to melt the mixture before your next use.
Dispose the mixture after a week.
