Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

Queen Helene Mint Julep MasqueOver the years I’ve been able to keep my acne at bay with the help of a great dermatologist and the magical ingredient Benzoyl Peroxide. I’m very meticulous about my beauty regimen and have stuck to the same products for the most part, with the occasional addition of new favorites.

Lately my biggest issue has been with blackheads, and not just on my nose but on my entire t-zone, leading to more breakouts as well. I bought the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque to help with my KP and decided to try it for my face. It cleared up 90% of my blackheads and gave me a smooth finish with a soft glow. I don’t recommend it on inflamed breakouts because the mint is strong and could irritate the acne. For under $10, this gem is a must in your beauty cabinet. if you do try it, let me know what you think! Xo

DIY: The Green Face Mask

Avocado Face Mask

It’s officially summer, although it’s already felt like it for over a month in Dubai. As we get ready to lay on the beach and soak in the sun, we shouldn’t forget how fragile our skin is and how much added moisture it will need this season. Avocados are packed with antioxidants, biotin, fatty acids and numerous vitamins all of which are nourishing and help with healing and revitalizing dry skin. This recipe combines avocados with some of my favorite ingredients for a natural face mask.

  • 1 full teaspoon avocado
  • 2 teaspoons yogurt
  • 3/4 teaspoon honey

Mash the avocado then add the yogurt and honey and whisk the ingredients together. I prefer to make the consistency fairly smooth so it spreads easily like butter. I recommend using a clean makeup brush or cotton pad instead of your hands because it’s more hygienic and less messy. Leave it on for 15 minutes and apply moisturizer after washing it off. Sweet and simple!

Happy summer to you darlings. Xx
