    I really would not use this....especially if i had acne prone skin....here are some free home acne treatments!! Do not use glue....it wont help the skin even if it Does take out the blackheads

    Cabbage Lotion is one homemade acne remedy that works well for some people.

    1 Mix around 300ml (thats half a pint) of pupled cabbage leaves with the same amount of distilled witch hazel.
    2 Add a few drops of lemon juice to the mixture.
    3 Mix well and apply to face
    4 Leave for a few minutes
    5 Rinse out

    ALOE VERA mask.

    Mix 2 spoons of aloe vera gel with 2 drop of tea tree oil.

    Apply to the face

    There is no need to rinse off the mask, just let the skin absorb it


    - Cut a tomato in half and rub onto the skin.
    Leave it on for fifteen minutes. Rinse face with water.
    This will reduce both open pores and blackheads. This treatment is good particularly for oily skin.

    Lynn,

    I think we'll have to look the glue thing up. Haven't seen jag around lately.

    Elmer's Glue disclaimer: When using Elmer's Glue as a beauty treatment, one should make sure they are not allergic to the product. While I don't know the statistics of "Elmer's Glue allergy," there is a chance that someone, somewhere, is allergic to the stuff. Also, I would like to add that when applying glue to your face, it is not advisable to apply glue anywhere near the eyes to prevent the possibly hazardous "Glued Eye Syndrome." Likewise for the mouth area.

    I have to say I was a bit scared too when I read using Elmer's glue for a face mask. It doesn't "sound" right but it seems like this site says its ok so i'm debating whether to try it. Did any of you yet?

    More from that site:
    This substitute peel-off mask idea comes from Looking Good Newsletter.

    You know those strips you can buy to remove blackheads and dirt from your face? Yep, they're not cheap. There is another way to achieve the same results and at a cost of pennies, or less. It's Elmer's Glue. You heard me, good old fashioned Elmer's Glue that most of us grew up using for one thing or another.

    Apply a layer of glue on your face, concentrating on the nose area if that is a problem area for you. Let it dry completely and peel off as you would with a peel-off mask. Rinse what residue doesn't come off when peeling. Feel your skin. Pretty nice, huh? Follow with a toner if you like.

    I like the tomato idea and the baking soda paste too... might try those first...

    Here's a homemade Biore strip recipe:

    1 cup sugar
    1/3 cup honey
    juice from 1/2 of a lemon
    2 tsp. of glycerin

    Place all the ingredients, except the glycerin, into a saucepan. Heat over medium/high heat until it reaches 240 degrees F. It will not work if it doesn't reach 240 Degrees F. The "wax" will turn an amber color.

    Pour it into a small wide mouth jar, add 2 tsp. of glycerin, and stir well. After it cools to about 115 degrees F., apply a thin layer to the area you want with a stiff spatula or other utensil. Then, place a clean washcloth evenly over the area and press firmly. Let the "wax" cool even more before you pull the washcloth off. Finally, pull the washcloth off in a quick even manner, just like you would a Biore strip.
