    Aspirin and Honey

      A combination of aspirin and honey can instantly reduce the effects of acne and help remove the redness that comes from skin irritation. Aspirin reduces swelling and redness caused by acne, while honey is an antibiotic that can disinfect your pores (which caused the acne in the first place).
      Try it at home: Clean your skin thoroughly with toner to open your pores. In a separate bowl, crush a single aspirin and then add a very small amount of toner to create a thick paste. Apply the paste directly to the acne spots and let it sit for five minutes. When five minutes are up, wash off the paste and then apply a small dab of honey to the blemishes. Wash the honey off after 10 minutes, and your skin will be clearer.

      Toothpaste

        Hopefully, you already use toothpaste to keep your teeth clean and healthy, but what you may not know is that white toothpaste can also reduce acne, remove bug bites, and help to eliminate the effects of itchy skin rashes.
        Try it at home: Apply white toothpaste (not gel) directly to your bug bites or acne, allow it to dry and then go to sleep. In the morning, wash off the toothpaste.

        Lemon and Sugar

          Lemons are a natural antiseptic, making them excellent for removing dirt and bacteria from pores. This helps make skin less oily, which over time can get rid of acne. Sugar acts as an exfoliant and opens up pores so the lemons can penetrate the skin.
          Try it at home: Cut a lemon in half, sprinkle sugar on one of the exposed halves and then apply that to your face each night to remove dead skin. This will get rid of blackheads and acne while making skin look more radiant.

          Sea Salt

            Like lemon, sea salt is a natural antiseptic, which explains why many people find their skin clears up after being at the beach. You don’t need to spend an afternoon splashing in the ocean to reap the benefits of saltwater—you can do so at home by applying a mixture of sea salt and water directly to your skin to reduce acne, age spots, and wrinkles.
            Try it at home: Add one tablespoon of sea salt to a 16-ounce spray bottle of warm water. Spray the combination onto a small applicator—such as a washcloth—and then let the salt do its work.

            What are you waiting for? Go raid your medicine cabinet and your kitchen and get to work on your skin.

            10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

            10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

            Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

            Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

            1. Make the Windows Your Own

            When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

            One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

            2. Put up Some Art

            If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

            Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

            3. Improve the Aroma

            A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

            Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

            4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

            A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

            There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

            5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

            If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

            Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

            6. Improve Your Air Quality

            One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

            The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

            7. Fill it with Plants

            Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

            They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

            8. Change the Doorknobs

            Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

            Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

            9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

            There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

            Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

            10. Fresh Cut Flowers

            You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

            You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
