Homemade Clay Pore Cleansing Facial Mask

I'll admit it, I've got some nose pores that tend to be a little more dirty than I'd like.  It isn't a huge deal, but it just seems like I can't ever really get them scrubbed clean.  Store bought face wash only works ok.  Over the years I've tried a ton of different products with more or less the same result of not as clean as I'd like.  So, when I came across a simple homemade pore cleansing solution that was just powdered clay and apple cider vinegar I decided I should give it a shot.

As a guy I haven't ever been overly eager for a “facial” before, not anti mind you, I never went out of my way to get one though.  For some reason, lately my silly nose pores have seemed a little more uncooperative than usual, so I decided to give this homemade pore cleansing clay mask a shot.

Here's how to make your own simple homemade pore cleansing face mask:

DIY Mason Jar Shaker

– Quick DIY Mason Jar Shaker –

Here is a great way to make your own diy mason jar shaker, and best of all it costs next to nothing to make.  My grandma gave me a bunch of her old mason jars, and I've been trying to find some good uses for them, and this fits the bill.  These homemade shakers are great because you can make them in any size that you want and can be used for anything from spice shakers to homemade carpet freshener.

Making your own shakers is a great alternative to buying a new shaker, especially as an alternative to plastic.  Don't worry if you don't have any mason jars laying around you can also use any glass jar with a metal lid.
