Plastering your nose with a blackhead-removing strip and then looking at the gunk that comes out of your face is one of life’s most beautiful and disgusting pleasures. But who wants to spend money on what’s essentially sticky paper? Here’s how to make your own strips.

  1. Combine one tablespoon of unflavored gelatin with one to two tablespoons of milk.
  2. Microwave for about 10 seconds until the mixture becomes liquid, then stir and smear on your face.
  3. Once it hardens, peel off and stare at the results in horror and amusement.
