Beauty tips

How to make a peel off face mask at home.

Ok so I’m not a beauty blogger. Lol! But here’s a pretty simple and cost effective beauty tip I found and thought it could be useful. Soooo… moving on erm I’m not going to say to much,( because I’m known to be a talker🤷🏽‍♀️) ,I’d just move straight to what you are here for. Lol! 

To begin, what’s a facial anyway? A facial is a beauty/ skin care treatment for the face. Including steam, exfoliation, extraction,facial masks etc. They are normally performed in beauty salons and spas. In this post, I’ll not just be writing on how to make a face mask. I thought I’d just go through the whole procedure, on how to apply/use  it after making it for a complete facial treatment. All in the comfort of your homes.☺️ Face masks are the perfect skin care treatment to help you with your skin care concerns. The right face mask can help in hydrating the skin, removing excess oils, improve the appearance of facial pores and help pull out impurities. 

Things you’ll need

Oats( cooked), lemon, olive oil, egg white, a bowl of hot water( PLS PLS BECAREFUL WITH THIS), face wipes, face masks, lotion.

Now let’s get to the main deal🔥Drumroll pls🥁…. 

Step 1- steam

Our very first step would be to clean our faces with face wipes or a warm wet towel ,to make sure we get rid of all dirt. To start steaming, we would get our bowl of hot water. Now, carefully bend slightly over the bowl of hot water. (No DIRECT CONTACT ❌). The bend should be close enough to allow the steam from the hot water to reach your face yet avoid scalding or burning your face. Do this for 5-7 mins. This process allows your facial pores open up and also deep cleanses your  tissues.

Step 2

The next step is masking. 


In a large bowl mix together one teaspoon of olive oil, about 5-7 drops of lemon juice, ½ a cup of cooked and cooled oatmeal and the egg white. You can use a wooden spoon for this. Keep mixing till the mixture becomes really smooth. After this, evenly apply the mixture on your face. Gently rub the mask on your face in a circular motion, making sure to reach all parts of your face. After, leave the mask on for 20mins, before peeling it off.mmm… (What to do with yourself for the next 20mins with a treatment mask on your face?lol 🤔any ideas?) . When your time is finally up, rinse your face thoroughly with warm water. Be sure to rinse the mask off completely because the eggs would make you feel a bit sticky and discomfy.

Step 3

Ok, we sooo are almost through the entire process. Flawless skin is on its way!  #yaaay! . Told you it was quick and easy 😁. After rinsing , by now your face should be clear without any mask residue. If so, your face should be feeling pretty smooth( I got the same effect post-facial). Apply a hydrating lotion on your face, to prevent your skin drying up and VOALÀ!!

Thank you! Hope you found this as useful as I did. 

Are we fighting right?…

Ok I’m a woman. I’m a proud black African woman. Even if I’m not happy of that fact, there’s not much I can do about it. Bleaching myself till I loose every ounce of pigmentation wouldn’t change my true lineage. It will just give me mental liberation . So then if I’m going to be ‘black’ I might as well be a proud one. Lol! As a black woman, I know our fight for gender equality has been endless, especially due to the stereotypical views of women in Africa. I’m proud to be an African woman but I’m not proud of our fight.

Growing up It’s not come as a stranger to me when I hear of gender equality, feminism, we are all equal! Bla,bla, bla… the list is endless . But in our patriotic fight to sabotage men for our rights, have really given a thought to this question. Are we really equal? I mean, hey before I bore you out don’t get me wrong, at least read on to the end of the next sentence maybe I’d make some sense to u. Since It seems making sense is virtue I’m short of. Iv been told that the place for a woman is in the kitchen, she needs an able man to take care of her. All she needs to do to pay for her comfort is to become literally his “domestic slave”.  This to me, personally is highly contextual. Most people who share contrary views to this are often people who have attained some level of comfort in their lives. They have their views geared towards some perspective of a sort ,and can’t think anything otherwise. A 21st century woman, tho illiterate would embrace such a claim without disputing. Another 21st century lady, however literate ..would not be able to bear the thoughts of such a claim. Do the disparities then lie between literacy, illiteracy or level of literacy? My take on gender equality is centered on women being worshipped as “kitchen goddesses” because it’s often the spark that starts the flame. Woman are not equal to men, we never have and we never will be! The earlier we acknowledge that fact the better it will be for us all. I’m a staunch egalitarian , but not a strong feminist. I’m a Christian , my belief I would say, to an extent doesn’t condone such movements.

I used to not be bothered about such things, but I realized women are becoming more and more comfortable being equal. I believe what we should be striving at attaining is equity. Yes!, gender equity. That’s a fair deal. Gender equality means we are to be treated in the same way and manner in all things. How is this even possible when from the very beginning our bodies are not equal, our emotional competences are not equal, our physical strengths are not, our ways of life are not, our interests are not, our choice of clothen are not, we don’t even want to be treated the same when it comes to certain tasks or job offers or applications just because we feel it won’t be fair .Equality aims to promote fairness, but it can only work if everyone starts from the same place and needs the same help. So lets just be realistic, we just can’t be equal. But giving everyone what they need to be successful, ensuring fairness, taking measures to compensate for women’s historical and social disadvantages and making sure women understand their gender roles, not stereotypes thus prefer to play relevant societal roles …equity. Then and only then, EQUITY will eventually lead to EQUALITY . So I ask again 

ARE WE FIGHTING RIGHT?
