Cheap Home Remedies That Actually Work!

Having very nice, beautiful, dewy skin these days seriously seems unachievable due to the high expenses of the products that we usually shop for. I won’t lie, I leave a hole in my wallet every time I shop for skin care products. It’s a guilty pleasure that we’re all prone to at one point of our lives. until one day I really wanted to see how avocado masks helped with skin until I saw a tutorial on how to make it yourself. Cool part about it was that the results of the DIY still came out as well as the manufactured mask. I then spent most of my time looking up tutorials for different types of masks. It’s great knowing that you can ditch the $45 and indulge into a remedy that could cost up to $5-10!

as you could tell from the ingredients listed above you don’t really need the oats, or the lemon juice, or the honey. the most essential item you’ll actually need would be egg whites. Egg whites are great for the skin as they help shrink pores, lift skin (yes, they provide a skin lift) AND THEY REMOVE BLACKHEADS!!!! egg white masks are a blessing and that’s why it’s the first remedy I spoke about. It’s amazing, guys! #bliss

Avocado and oatmeal mask:

Ingredients: avocado, oatmeal, and honey

Estimated time on face: 15-30 minutes

I love this mask simply because of the ingredients in it. Other than that, make sure that the avocado you use is ripe as it’ll show better results, less signs of skin irritation, and easier to ‘squash’ . Benefits of this mask is that it helps hydrate the skin and also exfoliates a bit. The oatmeal helps with any inflimation in the skin and also helps with those who have sensitive skin so that’s a win! the avocado helps with giving your skin that beautiful glow which i’m pretty sure everyone wants. One step closer to dewy! Lastly, the honey helps because it provides antioxidant which also reduce aging and gets you clearer skin!! YAAASSS QUEEEENS!!!

Pepto Bismol Mask:

Ingredients: Pepto Bismol

Estimated time on face: 15 min

Whaaaaaa? You mean that thing that helps an upset stomach can actually help my face too? Yes Queen… Or King. Pepto Bismol helps with black heads, tightening pores, and reduces breakouts! Do you know what that means ladies? Your period has a new competition next month just cause Pepto Bismol is about to kick some ass!

I hope you enjoyed the remedies and I hope that I helped save some money in your pockets! Have fun digging in your fridge or cabinents when you make your next facial! Good luck!

Things To Do While Waiting For That Plane

Traveling can be tough. The fact that you have to be on a plane for hours, with clogged ears, and my number one sad story about traveling; waiting for the plane to board. I understand the struggle, and I know that you guys do too. You just got your plane ticket, and just went through security check just to get to your gate and wait for possibly an hour or two for your plane to finally board. Sadly there’s no such thing as arriving to the airport two hours before the plane, if there was I’ll be doing that all the time. But there are some things that we can do to keep ourselves occupied instead of aimlessly walking around the airport before the time comes to board. When I meant aimlessly; I meant walking all the way down to Starbucks and back. (;

accesories-airport-bag-coffee-Favim.com-3146557.jpgSomethings that I usually enjoy doing before the plane boards is reading a book. Yes, that’s literally all that anyone does while waiting for their plane to board. Reading a book can honestly be one of the most relaxing things to do, and also really time consuming. Make sure that you’re reading a book that you are interested in so that the time could pass. Airports usually know that people may be interested in reading books, so they provide book stores in which you can purchase books. Then again you are in an airport which means that prices aren’t always going to be pocket friendly, but hey. You’re entertaining yourself right? Look at the bright side! If you get that interested in the book; guess who’s gonna be having some fun on that plane ride? Yes, you!

Another thing you could do is write in your journal. That’s honestly the first thing I do while waiting for my plane, after getting myself a nice cup of Starbucks coffee of course. Honestly write about anything. Is there something that you want to do before getting to your destination spot? Did someone make you angry before traveling and literally left you in rage before you left? Write about that! Seriously pick up that pad and pencil and write about what’s currently going off in your head right now. Don’t have a pencil or notepad? whip out your phone, tablet, or laptop and type down what’s on your mind.

Who could ever forget some good old Netflix & Chill? Yes, guys. Fire up that Netflix and watch a complete Marathon of How I Met Your Mother, Friends, Greys Anatomy, and American Horror Story. You will never be disappointed.I wonder if you guys were reading this and were like “Is she not going to mention, Netflix? Does she not have a life outside of blogging?” Don’t worry guys I do have one. (sort of). If you are probably reading this and you’re just like “I don’t have a Netflix acc., and I don’t want to make one last minute.” Don’t worry! I Gotchu! There’s this app that offers free movies, and TV shows and they also claim to be better than Netflix. It actually is a really good app, and it has a lot of movies at good quality, and also content that Netflix doesn’t even have themselves. They literally have a section that says ‘NOT ON NETFLIX’ I sort of died laughing while seeing that, but…. The name of The app is called Tubi TV and is available on the app store & Google play store. There are many categories of movies to choose from, and I’m guaranteed you’ll enjoy.

That concludes my article about what to do while waiting for your plane to board. I mean, unless you want to do what I did when I was three and hide under chairs whilst taking the wheelchairs from the wheelchair racks, and riding them around THE WHOLE ENTIRE AIRPORT! I’m not gonna lie, and say this for comical reasons, but I actually did do that as a child as sad as it may seem, siigh! Well that’s all for now. Thanks for reading , Till next time!
