How to Make Your Own Homemade Blackhead Removal Pore Strips

Our pores get clogged with oils and dirt and dead skin cells. That mixture gets trapped inside our pores and gets hard, often causing what looks like a black dot or blackheads. Sometimes blackheads also trap bacteria and can lead to the formation of pimples. I have a great natural solution for unclogging your pores and removing those unwanted blackheads - using a pore strip regularly on your face on the areas where you have blackheads. However, pore strips you buy in the drugstore, such as Biore, are quite expensive. I have a terrific recipe that you can make in seconds to remove blackheads and it works just as good as the drugstore brand. It uses unflavored gelatin and milk. You mix the gelatine and milk together, heat it and apply to your blackhead areas. Please see my video for step by step instructions and how it works on YouTube. Here is the link for you: Make Homemade Blackhead Removal Pore Strips -- A Natural Treatment, Prevent Acne, Unclog Facial Skin.  You will love this treatment! It costs pennies for the ingredients and it really works. Not only does it remove blackheads, but it leaves your skin smooth and helps to tighten and shrink pores. You'll love the results! See you on YouTube, -YouTips4U

My Favorite Healthier Lemonade Recipe

I want to share with you my favorite summer recipe for lemonade. It's so refreshing on a hot day and it's also very good for you.

To make a big 12 oz. glass of my favorite healthier lemonade (use more of each to make a pitcher), all you need is water, one fresh lemon, and Ocean Spray Sweetened Cranberry Juice Cocktail (not the sugar free or light one).

1) Squeeze the lemon in a hand juicer. Pour the fresh lemon juice into your glass of water. This should be done to taste. Next pour Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail into the lemon and water mixture to sweeten to taste.


This drink is a wonderful source of vitamin C and antioxidants. Also, the cranberry juice helps to flush bacteria out of the body including those that cause urinary tract infections.

You may also want to try adding cranberry juice to sweeten your tea. I love making iced green tea in the summer and I add cranberry juice to taste to sweeten it and lemon as well.

I hope you enjoy these simple recipes.

Remember: Tanning Beds Do Cause Skin Cancer

It is prom time in many high schools and I want to remind those that think it's safe to visit a tanning salon for this special event that IT IS NOT SAFE. Tanning beds have been shown to cause cancer. Skin cancer is dramatically on the rise in the U.S. and people are developing it younger and younger. Many teenagers think that it's o.k. in moderation. It's not. Sun damage caused by exposure to UV rays is cumulative. Your body does not forget how many times you visited the tanning salon although you may. Continued UV exposure can cause cell mutations that can lead to skin cancer. Skin cancer is an awful disease and can be life threatening. Don't take chances. I know people with skin cancer; it's not something to take lightly. It usually comes out years later leaving you full of regret that you weren't careful enough when you were younger. There is no medical reason to use a tanning bed. So if your friends tell you that they are doing it to boost vitamin D or to ease depression, these are not reasons to use a tanning bed. Think of a tanning bed as you would cigarette smoking. It's unhealthy for you and causes cancer.

Need a sun tan quickly for a special occasion, try sunless tanning. There are many great ones on the market that will give you a nice sun kiss glow - safely.
