I used to do facial masks and exfoliate my sking a lot, but then I understood that my skin reacts better when its hydrated and even the expression lines are less noticeable.
Give your skin some love with this homemade facial mask.
This is one of the best hydrating home masks you can make yourself:
- Some drops of Olive Oil
Simply peel the plantain and smash it well, then slice the avocado in a half and remove the seed, extract the food and mix it with the plantain, make sure to mix it well so you can get a smooth, homogeneous and creamy. If needed, then add a few drops of olive oil so it gets the desired consistency.
Then, is just a matter of applying it over your skin and let it work for about 15 to 20 minutes, remove it with an absorbent paper towel and rinse it well with water.
You can do this once a week if you have very dry skin.
Does it hurt when you pass your tongue several times for the same spot on the inside of your lips? Does it feel like a blister?

Blackheads on your nose are a pain. If you look at someone’s nose and see them, this means that they haven’t done a deep clean in a while. -No more pain when getting them out!
Here are some home remedies to clean blackheads for good:
1. Chamomile or Rosemary steams: First thing we want to do to get rid of blackheads is to boil some chamomile or rosemary. Receive this steam for about 5 minutes and then to close the pores freshen up your face using cold water.
2. Pineapple mask.
- A spoon of natural pineapple juice.
- A spoon of honey.
Preparing this mask is so simple, all you have to do is mix the pineapple juice with the honey until they are completely merged.
Apply on your face using cotton or a brush, enphatize in the area where you have more blackheads and your pores are open. Leave it for 15 minutes and rinse it off with warm water. Stop trying to squeeze them out of your face, if you do it, you’ll leave marks and it will get worse. Pineapple will be removing blackheads little by little.
Do this once every two weeks, if your face is full of blackheads then you can do it once a week.
1. Basil: Take some fresh basil leaves and boil them in water, similar to how you would prepare tea. There’s no need for sugar as it has a pleasant taste
2. Rooibos: It’s a great help when treating allergies and it doesn’t contain caffeine either. It really works as a soft and natural antihistamine, best of all, doesn’t cause drowsiness.
3. Make your own saline solution: There’s nothing worst than those medicines that when you put them on your nose and sniff them it feels like they open a huge hole because of how strong they are. Put half teaspoon of salt in 250ml of warm water. With a syringe apply the solution in the nose. By irrigating your nose with this saline solution you relieve your allergies as it eliminates anything that gets stuck on your nasals that causes irritation and inflamation.
In fact, saline solutions can even clean some inflamatory cells.
Flowers have been used for therapeutic purposes since ancient times by different cultures. The current system of preparation and use of essences was discovered in 1928 by Dr. Edward Bach, the father of modern floral medicine.
