Aztec healing Clay Mask : Does it work?

I’ve been gone for a while but now I am back and back for good. Today I want to talk about the Aztec healing Clay Mask A.K.A the ” world’s most powerful facial mask”.

Now, if you’ve never heard of this mask you must be living under a rock. From Youtube to Amazon thousands are raving about this mask. The reviews are exceptionally well and the ratings are over 4 stars. Of course with all the hype around this mask I had to find out whether it deserved the recognition or if its just another overhyped product. I went on Amazon and bought the mask for just $8.85.

This clay mask is supposed to give you a ‘deep pore cleanse’ and leave you with a “pulsating” sensation all around your face. When I received the mask I immediately tried it on that night.

*For delicate skin it is recommended to have the mask on for no more than 10 minutes. If you don’t have sensitive skin you can leave the face mask on for 20 minutes at most.*

♥ Making the Mask ♥

To Make the Mask simply mix 1/4 of Apple Cider Vinegar or Water with 1/3 of the bentonite clay powder. Mix it in a non metal bowl and apply it on your face.

*Apple Cider Vinegar is preferred*  To learn more about the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar click this → The Magic of Apple Cider Vinegar

Let the mask sit on your face. Since I have sensitive skin I left the mask on for 10 minutes. Afterwards I washed my face with lukewarm water.

Little Disclaimer note *

If you experience a bit of redness after using the mask ITS NORMAL!!! Don’t panic the redness should diminish in 30 mins.

The results may vary depending on how serious your acne is but this mask certainly deserves the hype. From a bumpy forehead to a smooth forehead. I absolutely love this clay mask and it is officially on the top of my list for skincare favorites. If you decide to buy this clay mask make sure to hashtag your results pictures with instant vogue. I would love to see your results and hopefully this clay mask does you wonders as it did for me.

Till next time lovelies,

#SAVENETNEUTRALITY

urgent_Net_Neutrality

I know that my blog is simply about all things beauty but I feel like I must speak about this topic. I want to spread the word and inform people with the facts. As of today the FCC has voted to repeal Net Neutrality. Now to really understand how this choice will impact future America we must first understand what Net Neutrality really is. 

WHAT IS NET NEUTRALITY ?

Under the rules of Net Neutrality, internet service providers are required to treat all online content the same. They can’t deliberately speed up or slow down traffic from specific websites or apps, nor can they put their own content at an advantage over rivals. The whole point of Net Neutrality is to not allow cable providers to choose what they prefer but rather have the consumers , a.k.a , we the people, to choose what we think is fitting to us. KEYWORD : US !

Now that you have a certain grasp on what Net Neutrality is it is now time to picture a world without Net Neutrality.

A WORLD WITHOUT NET NEUTRALITY 

Without Net Neutrality your ISP, Internet Service Provider, such as Comcast could influence what you see and how fast you see it. Now in order to access a fast web traffic you would have to pay the ISP more money. For big companies such as Google this is not much of a hassle since they can afford to pay the ISP ; but now what does that mean for small companies ? Well some companies might not be able to pay the ISP and some might just be completely denied access to fast web traffic. Now for consumers this means that some services will be slower than others unless your favorite websites such as Google pay the ISPs. ISPs can also charge premium prices for people who want to watch videos or listen to music at times when traffic is high. ISP can also choose to slow down any content they wish and also censor any content they disagree with. 

WHY IS NET NEUTRALITY IS IMPORTANT ?

Net Neutrality makes the internet a leveled playing field. Small companies can easily challenge big competitors which motivates companies to improve their product. Small start ups such as my blog have a fighting chance of growing and even surpassing the biggest rivals. Without Net Neutrality content creators, models, singers, photographers, makeup artists, entrepreneurs and just about every other person that uses the internet as their platform will lose their business, their way of living. We all have the right to an open and free internet.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO SAVE NET NEUTRALITY ?

First and foremost, spread the word! We the people have a voice and a right to speak about what is important to us. Don’t sit around and stay quiet, SPEAK UP ! The FCC might have repealed Net Neutrality but the fight isn’t over yet. Congress can stop FCC and overrule their vote using the Congressional Review Act. I need each and every one of you to keep the pressure on Congress. Go to Battleforthenet.com and help save Net Neutrality by writing to Congress and also Text BATTLE to 384-387. You can also call congress at 2027597766. NOW IS THE TIME PLEASE HELP SAVE NET NEUTRALITY #STOPTHEFCC

5 Uses For Tea Tree Oil

So about a month ago I posted my skincare routine on my youtube channel, if you haven’t watched the video already click the image below to be directed to the video ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓

Screen Shot 2017-10-01 at 10.29.25 PM

Anyways I felt like my video didn’t really go much into depth about the actual effect of tea tree so therefore here I am with a more in depth description about the benefits of using tea tree oil.

 ♥ Clears acne 

A study showed that just 5 percent solution of tea tree oil works just as well as benzoyl peroxide. Mix a few drops of tea tree oil with about 35 drops of witch hazel, and apply to your skin once or twice a day with a cotton swab. *** tea tree oil can dry out your skin, triggering your body to overproduce its own oils and make your acne worse so be careful not to overuse it *** You can also simply apply tea tree oil by itself to a pimple and within 24 hours your pimple will be gone.

 ♥ Soothes sores

Since Tea tree oil is a antiseptic it will soothe your sore. Dab a single drop of tea tree oil directly on your sore. Just like that 🙂

 ♥ Nails

Got cuticles drier than the Sahara Desert ? Well with just a single drop of tea tree oil twice a day your nails will be thanking you. Your nails will go from 0 to 100 real quick.

 ♥ Treat Dandruff

Add a few drops of tea tree oil into your shampoo and watch how quick your dandruff will go away.

 ♥ DIY Deodorant 

Mix half of a lemon and a few drops of tea tree oil for a quick DIY Deodorant. This DIY will get rid of the stinky smell under your armpits.

Till next time lovelies

The Magic of Apple Cider Vinegar

I been out for a while but now i’m back. Today I will be dedicating this post to one of the greatest tonics : Apple Cider Vinegar. This tonic has been claimed to lead all sorts of benefits and today you will learn how to implement this vinegar into your everyday lifestyle.

Helps you lose Weight                        

Vinegar lowers blood sugar and insulin levels. It also promotes satiety.

Slows your aging process 

ACV’s ability to maintain the stability of the acid/alkaline balance in the body plays a key role in slowing down your aging process. Another key role is the antioxidant properties of ACV. 

♥  Alternative to Shampoo

Helps to remove excess buildup of mineral deposits. It improves blood circulation to the hair follicles, encouraging hair growth and preventing loss of hair. If you rinse your hair regularly with ACV, it makes removing tangles from your hair easier and  leads to a reduction in breakage and split ends.

Best facial toner ever !!!

ACV helps to even out skin tone, balance skin pH and even battle breakouts too. The acid in ACV contains antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties that keep the skin clean, balanced and free of acne while encouraging it to heal itself.

Can relieve the pain of sunburn

ACV helps promote healing, prevent blistering, relieve the pain and decrease the redness. Just combine a half cup of ACV with four cups of water and then dip a clean washcloth in the mixture and apply it to affected areas.

Detox

ACV works to help detoxify the body. It specifically helps detox the liver, and that it stimulates circulation. ACV helps to remove harmful environmental toxins that build up in the body, especially in the liver. It helps to flush it out and improve the natural blood filtration process while boosting energy levels.

Helps with Body Odor

The acids found in ACV wipe out the bacteria that are known to cause body odor. By simply soaking your armpits and other pungent areas of your body in a strong apple cider vinegar bath, you’ll be allowing those acids to seep in and get rid of that awful stench.

Balances your pH scale in your Coochie 

ACV cleans out the bad bacteria and helps to multiply the good bacteria. Once the good bacteria starts increasing then your body is able to build up its pH level balance and keep your vagina clean. If you had issues with yeast infections or UTI, ACV will reduce the symptoms drastically (only if you use it everyday).

Next Time you’re out at the grocery store grab a bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar, bring it home and bathe in it. Bless up! Till next time my lovelies !

Stay blessed XOXO ♥♥♥

Cooking with Mel : Zucchini Pasta

Today, I’m going to show you how to make this easy creamy zucchini pasta dish. Totally vegan friendly and gluten free. 

Ingredients used :

 3 Fresh Zucchini

1 Full Onion 

2 Ripe Avocados 

4 cloves of garlic

1 lime

1 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper

 2 Tomatoes

How to make :

1. You want to start off by making your zucchini noodles. The easiest way is to use a spiralizer this  way you get long curly noodles in no time.
2. After you have made your Zucchini noodles you want to chop the onion and tomatoes. You also want to mince your 4 cloves of garlic. 
3. Prep your pan with 1 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and set the heat to medium. Once hot enough you want to pour your chopped onion and minced garlic into the pan.
4. When the oil begins to bubble around the garlic, add the zucchini noodles
5. Toss the noodles around and cook for around 2 – 4 mins
6. While your noodles are cooking you want to prep the sauce. Cut the two ripe avocados in half and with a spoon scoop out the avocados and add to the blender. Add the lime juice and a couple pinches of salt. * You want to add salt to the sauce and not the zucchini because salt draws out water from the zucchini *
7. Once all blended add the sauce into the pan and toss around the noodles , add the chopped tomatoes, and a hint of pepper.
8. Plate your food and EAT UP AND ENJOY !
