It’s amazing how simple things around the house can be used as an alternative to skin care products. Surprisingly, one of the things that most people don’t know is the uses of Elmer's Glue as a blackhead removal peel-off mask.

As our face get exposed to pollution and free radicals in our daily lives, our pores get clogged and dirty that eventually leads to accumulation of excess oils that become blackheads.

Of course, there are lots of blackheads and whiteheads removal strips in the market, but what we do emphasize here is the cheap alternative and more effective way of removing blackheads.

People tried it and were amazed by the results. Some of them say that Elmer's Glue takes out more blackheads that the commercial removal strips available in the market. Some are hesitant to try but did it anyway and were shocked that it really worked for them.

So if you want to have a blackhead-free face, here's the things you need:

1. Towel for Cold Water

2. Towel for Warm Water

3. Cotton Buds

4. Warm and Cold Water

6. Any moisturizer (optional)

Here are the steps on how to do it:
