She Puts Elmer's Glue All over Her Nose. The Result? Incredible!
Of all the beauty trends out there, bet you never thought you'd be using glue for a beauty hack. Yes, that's right, Elmer's school glue, that white paste that you used in elementary school for making arts and crafts. Elmer's glue has quite the reputation going back to 1947 when the white glue was first introduced to the public. It was first known as Cascorez Glue and was sold in glass bottles with popsicle sticks attached with a rubber band for application. The glue was then named Elmer's Glue-All and given the mascot of Elsie, the cow which we still see on the Elmer's Glue packaging. Elmer happened to be Elsie's counterpart which is why the glue got his name. By 1951, the glue had new, plastic packaging with the smaller nozzle like it does today. This made it much easier to apply and created less of a mess overall. Elmer's School Glue was introduced in 1967 and became the best-selling glue in America, it could be found in every school room and still is today. Kids still have the glue on their school supplies lists every year because they're always using some for projects and crafts. In the 80s, a glue stick came out which made glueing even easier, but the white glue was still a favourite in most classrooms.
Now you can even find multicoloured Elmer's School Glue in colours like pink, blue and yellow. Which would actually maybe be pretty fun for this beauty hack. For this beauty hack, you're going to be using the glue as a pore strip to remove blackheads from your nose. Blackheads can be pesky things, and they are usually found mainly on the nose, chin and forehead. Blackheads aren't directly caused by getting dirt in your pores, but it's rather the blackening of the sebum that turns dark when it is exposed to air. The best way to be blackhead free is to eat a healthy diet and get plenty of exercises because acne and blackheads are mainly caused by what we eat. You can keep them more under control and less noticeable by trying simple life hacks like this one. Many beauty hacks and trends have popped up using everyday items like glue or even eggs. It's nice to use something that can be found at home rather than purchasing expensive pore strips from the drug store. Usually, the simple life hacks are just as good as the products.
To do this beauty hack, just get some Elmer's School Glue and get ready to clean your pores. First, take a warm cloth or cotton pad and dip it in warm water. Then place it on your nose for a minute or so. This will help to open up your pores so that the blackheads come out easily. Wipe your nose dry and then take a paint brush and use it to paint the white glue all over your nose. Be sure to use a thick layer since this will work the best. Then you'll let the glue dry, which will take a while but it'll be worth it. The glue is dry when it turns clear; you won't even be able to see it anymore once it's dry. Then, start peeling it off from the bottom, and be really gentle because it may hurt, especially where there are little hairs. Once it's off, you'll be able to see all of the blackheads that came out of your pores before you throw it away in the garbage. So there you have it, the next time you want a little spa treatment just pull out your Elmer's School Glue and give this beauty hack from GDiipa Skincare & Makeup a try.***
