DIY Pore Strips

This week’s blog post is a DIY! I haven’t done a DIY post in a while and never one that is “beauty” related, so I hope you enjoy. I personally think that pore strips are very fun to do and can give some really good results. The most common pore strips that you will find at your local drugstore are Biore. One box of six pore strips is about $6.00, but this DIY will cost you no more than $1.00. And, you will probably have around 2 years worth of pore strips! The only thing you need for this DIY is glue.  I would recommend basic Elmers school glue since you can’t go wrong, and it is incredibly cheap. The second thing you will need is a Q-tip, which is optional. I have personally found that Q-tips are the easiest way to apply the glue to your nose, but you can use whatever means of application you want.

Once you have your glue and Q-tips, the rest is very self-explanatory. All you have to do is take your Q-tip, dip it into the glue and spread on your desired area. Once you have applied an even layer of glue, simply wait for the glue to dry. When you first apply the glue, it should start out as white.  You will know when it is dry, since it will turn clear. If you don’t have much time and want to speed up the process, you can blow dry the glue with a blow dryer. Once your pore strip is completely clear, you can peel it off.

I use this method around once to twice a month. I don’t use pore strips very often, but that is just what works for me and that will change from person to person. I hope you liked this week’s post, I really enjoyed writing a new DIY post since I haven’t done one in so long! Thank you so much for reading this post and I hope that next time you run out of pore strips, you try this out! – Suki <3
