5 Natural Ways to Remove Blackheads You know how, if your pants fall down just a little tiny bit when you’re leaning over and a millimeter of your crack shows? A MILLIMETER? Everyone can see that. Everyone sees it. Even the men in the space station. Blackheads are not like that. Still, they’re annoying. Let’s make that happen. Blackheads are just pimples that don’t have skin over them. All you have to do is clean out your pores, and the blackheads are gone. If you’re prone to blackheads, I have some good and bad news for you.

DIY Skin Smoothing Mask One of my most popular treatments when I was running my own esthetics business was a hydrating chocolate wasabi mask (a professional treatment). It was meant to soften, tone and temporarily reduce wrinkles and everyone loved it! I decided to play around with a few ingredients and make a wonderful DIY version. This mask smells like a cupcake bakery on your face and makes your skin feel so soft and youthful once you have rinsed it off. And if you want to lick the little bowl after you finish applying I will not judge you. Benefits of this mask: The natural oils from the cocoa powder help smooth out wrinkles.Cocoa powder contains antioxidants that help clear out toxins in your skin, which can make you look older.The honey is incredibly moisturizing, but will not break out you. Have fun!
