Tomatoes and Sugar Mask for Oily Skin
Besides salads or soups, tomatoes can be a valuable ingredient in facial masks. Tomatoes have a lot of skin benefits, because of the wonderful antioxidant they contain: lycopene.
This creates a barrier against free radicals and prevents premature skin aging. In addition to lycopene, tomatoes also contain plenty of vitamins A and C, which means that the skin is deeply nourished and, after a few treatments, will have an improved appearance.
In the summer time, shiny skin effect occurs due to sebum excess, but exfoliating mask with tomato and sugar will take care of this aspect. Prepare a mask from a tomato pulp and a teaspoon of sugar. Apply the mask on clean skin, with circular movements, without putting too much pressure. Rinse with warm water.
Beeswax – Olive Oil – Marigold Flower Mask
You probably give much attention to wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, but it’s good to have respect and care for those around the mouth. They usually appear later, after 30 years, first in the form of fine lines.
The main causes are smoking, exposure to the sun with no sunscreen, wind, or skin type – especially in the case of dry, dehydrated, they occur more often. To prevent, but also to attenuate them, we advise you to prepare at home a cream for wrinkles around the mouth with calendula, olive oil and beeswax.
– 200 gr. beeswax
– 750 ml olive oil
– fresh marigold flowers
How to prepare and apply:
Put all ingredients over low heat to warm and let them boil (a minute or two).
Caution: when you boil them, marigold flowers should not be wet but perfectly dry. Leave the mixture overnight and the next morning heat it, slip it and put it in containers. Use cream thus created on the problem areas on a daily basis for at least two weeks.
3 Natural Masks to get rid of blackheads
- Egg white natural mask
When it dries, egg white becomes a film that you can peel off the skin surface with a single movement. Therefore egg white is effective if you want to use it to get rid of blackheads – or simply to cleanse your skin naturally. Stretch the egg whites with your fingers or a brush, let it dry, then pull the mask and rinse with lukewarm water. You can repeat this process twice a week.
- Milk and nutmeg
An exfoliating mask that you can use to get rid of blackheads is milk and nutmeg. Mix the two ingredients until they form a paste then apply it on the skin. Massage gently with circular movements for two to three minutes then rinse with warm water. After you dried the skin, apply a moisturizer. The best time to do this mask is in the evening before bedtime.
- Lemon and jojoba oil
Squeeze half a lemon and mix the juice with two to three drops of jojoba oil for cosmetic use. With a toothbrush with very soft bristles gently massaged with circular movements the blackheads areas. Avoid areas with pimples or with open wounds and don’t do this more than once a week.

Anti-aging Miracle: Schizandra Berry
If you want to look younger, feel more energized, and boost your brainpower, try the schizandra berry. This herb has been used for over 3000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Schizandra berry is an adaptogen, a class of herbs that help the body fight stress by reducing the production of stress hormones. As such, it helps you “adapt” to mental and physical stress by lowering these stress hormones in the blood, a key to slowing the aging process. In China, the schizandra berry is known as the five-flavored fruit because of its five conflicting tastes – sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy.
Here’s how the schizandra berry turns back the clock:
Younger Skin: The schizandra berry contains powerful antioxidant properties that work to rejuvenate skin by protecting the lipid membrane in skin cells. Plus, its anti-inflammatory qualities help to reduce facial redness. Lastly, it detoxifies your liver to rid your body of toxins.
Try using dried schizandra berry to make tea or juice. You can also find it in prepared tea or juice form. Try cutting the strong taste of the juice by mixing it with another juice.
This Simple Trick Will Get Rid Of Your Gross And Annoying Blackheads Forever!
Let me guess: you’ve used cosmetics in the past to remove your gross and sometimes painful blackheads only to have them come right back, right? It turns out, those pricey strips and expensive facial cleansers are only temporary solutions and don’t even touch the effectiveness of my all natural method.
All you need is lemon, salt, and warm water. It’s more effective than anything you’ll buy in the store and your blackheads won’t come back.
In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of sea salt, 1/2 a teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of warm water. Apply the mixture to your whole face, but apply more to the area with blackheads. Take a warm, wet washrag and slowly work the mixture into your skin in a circular motion like you’re waxing a car. Wax on, wax off.
Massage your skin with the warm rag for 5 minutes. Rewarm the rag if it starts cooling off. Allow the mix to sit on your skin for another 5 minutes then wash your face off with cold water – as cold as you can stand.
You may need to apply it a few times over the course of a week, but it’ll break down those nasty blackheads and keep them away. How? Here’s the breakdown:
Salt is an antibacterial agent that helps cleanse and unclog the pores. Lemon juice contains citric acid which helps fight off germs and bacteria, thus cleaning the skin. The warm water helps open up your pores as well. All together, it’s like an expensive chemical peel but not nearly as bad for you.
