I am often unhappy with my skin. Besides the fact that she is prone to rashes and inflammations, she often looks slack and tired. A black dot in the nose and chin – this is normal for me.
Sticky strips to remove black dots even cope with their task, but dots appear again after a few days. Having tried a lot of store products for oily skin, I came to the conclusion that none of them do not suit me.
I heard about the miraculous effects of gelatin on the skin for a long time and have used it for several years to make masks for hair. After reading a few recipes and reviews on the Internet, I chose a simple but effective recipe for a gelatin-based face mask, which I now regularly use.
I will not hide the fact that the condition of my skin remains far from perfect, but there are improvements and they are noticeable not only to me, but also to those around me. Therefore, I hasten to share my find with the participants of Alimero.
Effects of gelatin on the skin
Regularly using gelatin for cooking, I never thought about its composition and was very surprised when I learned that gelatin consists of an extract of collagen proteins, which is obtained from tendons, cartilage tissues and bones of various animals.
As you know, in medicine and cosmetology, collagen is used to restore, improve skin elasticity and elasticity, and protein is the main building material of cells.
When a woman begins to age, it is the lack of collagen that causes the appearance of wrinkles. This is another reason why I use a gelatin mask regularly. After it, the skin really becomes elastic, toned and young.
Surprisingly, cosmetics, prepared on the basis of gelatin, cosmetologists consider more effective than the one that is sold in stores. Therefore, for all women who want to improve the skin, I recommend at least once to prepare masochka according to the recipe I have tested.
1 tsp food gelatin
6 tsp. warm water
3 tsp. milk or kefir
1 tsp oat or wheat flour
First you need to dilute the gelatin with warm water and leave to swell for 15-25 minutes. After the gelatin swells, the mass must be heated until it is completely dissolved. Make sure that the mass does not boil.
When the mixture becomes homogeneous, add flour (I most often use oatmeal, chopped in a blender) and kefir. Stir well. Our masochka is ready!
Before you apply a mask, you must thoroughly cleanse the skin. I use for this purpose gel for washing or scrub. It will be better if you collect the hair in a bundle or at least put on a hoop, because they can stick to the gelatin, and this is very unpleasant.
I prefer to apply the mask with an ordinary silicone brush, which is used in cooking. During the application of the facial muscles should be as relaxed as possible, otherwise during drying of the mask you will experience unpleasant pulling sensations.
After the mask is applied, it is necessary to leave it on the skin for 20-25 minutes. You will feel the mask drying out. I try to carry out this procedure when no one is at home, since it is undesirable to talk while the mixture is on the skin. Muscles must be completely relaxed. Rinse the mask must be warm water.
I use this mask once a week and am very pleased with the result. I advise you to try it too!
