Blemishes are usually caused due to sun, acne and clogged pores that leave some dark spots on the skin. No one likes such imperfection especially on the face and hence there are a variety of treatments based on the cause to remove these black spots. If you have problem skin, chances are you’ve tried hundreds of products that promise to provide you with a glowing complexion. While some of these cosmetics may be effective, everything doesn’t work for everyone. Also, acne-prone skin tends to be very sensitive, so you may have also experienced redness and the development of more blemishes if you’ve used cleansers and toners that were too harsh on your skin.
One fast way to get rid of blemishes is by using naturally made home remedies.  Following this tip will clear blemishes and make your face spotless and beautiful

Black soap is a natural cleanser made from the peel of plantain. It is a very old natural remedy that has been used by Africans for centuries and in recent times its popularity has spread all over the world. If you have skin issues like acne, oily skin and blemishes, black soap can work wonders for you. The soap exfoliates the skin and helps to lighten the skin and even the tone of your complexion, revealing beautifully radiant healthy skin cells. It also gets rid of acne, deep cleans and purifies the skin at a cellular level; helps even out dark spots and discoloration on the skin. Simply use the black soap as you would any facial cleanser to get rid of blemishes.

Honey naturally lightens the skin to get rid of blemishes and breakouts. This sweet ingredient is antibacterial and immediately removes infection from the face to help dry up whiteheads and blackheads. To use this natural remedy, simply put a little honey on a spoon and use a Q-tip to dab the ingredient directly on blemishes. Let the honey stay on your face for about 10 minutes before washing it off with a mild cleanser. You can use this natural blemish-fighting remedy about three times a week.

Egg whites have healing qualities which help to reduce scars and marks. The sulfur in egg whites helps to dry up blackheads and whiteheads to create a clear complexion. The egg also has the ability to tighten the skin and prevent new blemishes from forming.
To use this method, simply separate the egg white from the yolk. Whip egg whites with a little water and apply to the face as a mask. You can use a cotton swab, cotton ball, or simply your fingers to apply the egg white to your skin. Leave the solution on your face before rinsing with cool water. If you have oily skin, you can use this treatment every two days or so to keep your skin blemish-free.


Reigning Africa Cup of Nations champions Nigeria will not defend their title in Equatorial Guinea after failing to qualify from Group A.
In the final round of matches which took place yesterday in Uyo, Nigeria were held 2-2 by South Africa, meaning they finished outside of their group’s top two automatic qualification spots with eight points – a total that also put them out of the running to be the best third-placed team.
South Africa had already assured their place at the tournament, which will be played from 17 January to 8 February, and only one spot is still outstanding.
Congo Brazzaville, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Guinea, Mali and DR Congo all claimed their tickets to the continent’s showpiece event with their results on Wednesday.

Pineapple is a remarkable fruit. We find it enjoyable because of its lush, sweet and exotic flavour, but it may also be one of the most healthful foods available today. If we take a more detailed look at it, we will find that pineapple is valuable for easing indigestion, arthritis or sinusitis. The juice has an anthelmintic effect; it helps get rid of intestinal worms.

Let's look at how pineapple affects other conditions...

Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of strong bones and connective tissue.  A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount. It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become brittle with age.
[Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple's value.]

Proteolytic means "breaks down protein", which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid. It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.

Bromelain is also considered an effective anti-inflammatory. Regular ingestion of at least one half cup of fresh pineapple daily is purported to relieve painful joints common to osteoarthritis. It produces mild pain relief. In Germany , bromelain is approved as a post-injury medication because it is thought to reduce inflammation and swelling.

Orange juice is a popular liquid for those suffering from a cold because it is high in Vitamin C. Fresh pineapple is not only high in this vitamin, but because of the bromelain, it has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat. If you have a cold with a productive cough, add pineapple to your diet. It is commonly used in Europe as a post-operative measure to cut mucous after certain sinus and throat operations. Those individuals who eat fresh pineapple daily report fewer sinus problems related to allergies. In and of itself, pineapple has a very low risk for allergies.

Many people strive to attain lighter, brighter, healthier-looking skin. Learning to properly care for your skin on a day-to-day basis will help your skin stay light and tight. Here are few tips to follow!!!

WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERYDAY: If you want lighter skin, you have to care for it properly, using a sunscreen with a high Sun Protection Factor (SPF) rating. When you expose your skin to UVA and UVB light, your body produces melanin which makes your skin appear darker. Sun exposure can wreak all sorts of havoc on your complexion, from freckles and brown spots to serious sunburns and skin cancer. Therefore, the number one most important thing you can do to lighten your skin is to wear sunscreen every day you'll be outdoors, even when it's not super-hot or sunny. You can also protect your skin by wearing light, long-sleeved clothing and by wearing a hat and sunglasses when you're in the sun for long periods of time.

THOROUGLY CLEANSE YOUR FACE TWICE A DAY: Wash your face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. This removes dirt and oil, which is important for a healthy, clear complexion.

EXFOLIATE A COUPLE OF TIMES A WEEK: This is important as it removes the darker, dead skin cells and reveals the new, lighter skin beneath. Exfoliating once a week will remove dead skin cells to lighten and brighten your skin.
Invest in purchasing a good scrub to remove dead skin cells. Or just make one yourself using honey, lemon, & sugar. It's edible... and it works incredibly!


We are happy to introduce our latest skincare product called Chanterelle Maxi White cream. It is a very high quality lightening treatment which enables to fight against brown spots and to visibly lighten complexion. It's a blend of natural skin lighteners such as Vitamin C,  Kojic Acid, Lemon Extract, Grapeseed Extract, Almond Extract and Vitamins. It's 100 % safe; no hydroquinone, steroids or mercury.  Effectively lightens age spots and dark skin areas. Requires application of 1-6 weeks until skin whitens dependent on skin pigmentation.

16 year old Nigerian model, Favour Lucky, is now the title holder for African Fashion Awards “New Face Of The Year”. This international fashion model is signed to Isis Models, Nigeria, spearheaded by former beauty queen, Joan Okorodudu.

Just a couple of years ago, the Nigerian beautiful was shedding tears after beating numerous of long legged girls at the Nigeria’s Next Super Model contest and we were proud to acknowledge her as one of Africa’s best models.


The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has bagged the Achievement Award of a group, the Africa’s Young Entrepreneurs (AYE). Tinubu, who was also appointed as AYE patron, was conferred with the award at his Bourdillon-Ikoyi, Lagos residence recently by a six-man delegation of AYE from South Africa.

A statement issued by Tinubu’s media office in Lagos said the former Lagos State governor and business mogul, was described as an exemplary leader by the AYE President, Mr. Summy Smart Francis, a Nigerian based in South Africa.

According to the statement, while presenting the Honorary Achievement Award to Tinubu, Francis said, “This award is given to entrepreneurs and business people that have made a huge impact on the continent and are known around the globe through their business achievements. “Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Africa sees you and recognises you. You are an African Icon.”

He mentioned Rita Dominic, Desmond Elliot, Moses Inwang, Ramsey Nouah, Susan Peters, Anita Chris and a few others during his speech..
