Get Rid Of Black Heads With Eggs
An easy method for fighting blackheads is using an egg white mask.
Simply apply a layer of egg whites to your face, after that apply a layer of tissues. Then, apply one final layer of the egg whites on top.
You can easily peel the mask away when everything is dry.
This mask can be used to tighten pores and by that preventing blackheads.
Cinnamon Lip Plumper
Cinnamon is a great lip plumper because, it contains cassia oil, which has many benefits.
It is a calming agent and does not harm your skin when used topically. However, it irritates your mucus membrane when applied to the lips. As a result, the blood circulation to your lips increases, giving you that coveted bee-stung pout.
After applying the cinnamon lip plumper, you will experience mild irritation on your lips, that’s normal. If you don’t feel any irritation at all, then you need to add more cinnamon to the mixture.
