Natural and cheap facemask

The mask we are writing about today is completely natural, and its ingredients are all beneficial for the skin. It removes all impurities and leaves it healthy and smooth.

Its main ingredients are baking soda and apple cider vinegar, both of which are probably already in your kitchen. However, its effects will amaze you!

This is how to prepare it:


sodium bicarbonate
Apple cider vinegar
1/2 lemon
Method of preparation:

Add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in half a glass of water. In another container, add some baking soda and then slowly add the mixture of water and vinegar. Add the juice of half a lemon, and stir well until you get a homogenous mixture.



Wash the face well to open the pores and eliminate all the remnants of makeup. Then, use a soft cloth to dry it. Apply the mask evenly on the face, and leave it to act for 5-10 minutes. Then, wash it out with warm water, and again with cold water to close the pores.

Health benefits of red wine

It’s the bane of adolescence and often follows many sufferers into adulthood.
But a new study has suggested that red wine could help combat acne.

The antioxidant resveratrol – found in berries, red and chocolate – was revealed to inhibit the growth of the bacteria that causes the painful skin condition.

However it was the combination of both the resveratrol and benzoyl peroxide (found in creams and gels) that was found to have the best effect.

Aside from its spot-fighting abilities, red wine has an abundance of other health benefits…

Heart Health

Resveratrol is one of the most powerful antioxidants, which can help reduce the saturated fat accumulated in the arteries.

The flavonoids and saponins in red wine can also help protect you against cardiovascular diseases.

Good Night’s Sleep

The melatonin in red wine can help you hit the hay after a stressful day in the office (although you should consult a doctor if you have trouble sleeping regularly).

Beats Lurgy

A US study found that participants who drank red wine had 40 per cent less colds than those who didn’t.

Glowing Skin

Red wine can slow aging and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as its antioxidants can help sop up the free radicals that damage skin. They say, ‘A glass a day and your skin will glow.’

Strong Bones

An Australian study attributed strong bone health to red wine and women who drank a moderate amount (one or two glasses a day) were less likely to develop osteoporosis.

Lowers Cancer Risk

The antioxidant resveratrol has been found to prevent the growth of cancerous cells, while studies have also found a reduced risk of breast and lung cancer.

Live Longer

Scientists have found red wine drinkers live longer – while it can also protect you from dementia and Alzheimer’s.
