Let's get real today, many people seem to think that skinny shaming is acceptable. Suggesting certain women really need to get a pizza or a burger and eat the whole thing it is an unacceptable joke. People only hear about fat shaming but skinny shaming is a real problem too.

Body shaming

5 EASY DIY PEEL OFF MASKS FOR BLACKHEADS



Hey Beautiful people, this is your girl Nadege Mbayo I’m a Congolese Fashion and Beauty blogger which obviously means that I have my own blog too “You’ll get the name at the end, patience kids” … but today I’m making a quick stop on my sister’s blog.
So, how are you all doing today?

We’ve all heard about the blackhead peel off mask and we’ve surely heard people saying that it’s painful to remove it… but there’s a saying in French that says “ On dois souffrir pour être belle”  and another one in Swahili that mothers use a lot and most of you that speak the language should know it, so it’s “bitoko bin’atshana, mbuzi na biake, nkuku na biake”… ok, I’m not going to give you guys a Language kind of lesson right now, am I?

It affects the beauty and skin so it is important to take a proper treatment for it. Beauty parlors offer many types of treatments and beauty procedures for removing the blackheads. You can deal with this problem in the comfort of your home without going to a salon. Using the peel off masks is beneficial to remove blackheads.
