The skin, being the outer covering of our body against several factors, is one of the most prone to diseases, infection, irritation, and other unwanted situations. The largest organ of the body can be open to hundreds of different skin disorder that everyone can be at risk of.

A dermatologist is an expert that specialized in treating a skin disorder. Though seeking their help can be very effective to end the problem. Unfortunately, every visit to their clinic can cost a fortune depending on your skin's situation.

Given this reason, coming up with a solution with the help of nature is always more practical when treating basic skin problems. Nature already has its own and special way to heal us. We only have to discover it.


"Clogged pores occur when oil, dirt, or dead skin cells start to build up. This can be caused by makeup, not having a good skin care regimen, bacteria, sweat, excessive oil production, and even hormones", explains Yuri M. Kim, DO, who is one of the dermatologists of Skin & Beauty Center.

To remove clogged pores without the risks of skin irritation, it is better to make your own natural blackhead remover peel-off mask. First, mix 5 activated charcoal and one pack of gelatin powder with ¼ cup of hot water. Mix well to desired consistency.

By using a clean brush, apply the product to the nose. Wait until completely dry. After, slowly peel the product off of your face.


Dark underarms can be a result of one's health condition, the skin's excess production of pigment cells, or one's repeated hair removal. It can be treated after applying several topical creams or lotions that have either kojic acid, hydroquinone, corticosteroids or tretinoin in it. You can avail this treatment and spend thousands, or you can either create a natural scrub to lighten your dark spots.

To create the mixture, as revealed by 5-Minutes Craft through their Facebook page, just mix sea salt, baking soda, water, and white vinegar in a small bowl. Scrub the product onto your armpits and other dark areas for a couple of minutes. Using a damp towel, remove the product off. Follow the instruction for several sessions once a day for a lighter effect.

With the high demand for beauty nowadays, it is understandable why the cost of becoming beautiful is raging high and even increasing every time. With this reason, turning for a solution from nature is the best thing to do, especially as it surely won't pose negative effects to your face, skin, and body.
