Au Revoir Blackheads. You’re not welcome here!
Let’s talk about one my biggest love affairs with skincare, The Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mask. Safe to say....a cult favorite. It is an all natural powder clay, made of 100% calcium bentonite; Which is a type of dry, absorbent clay that forms from old volcanic ash. Bentonite clay has been found to remove bodily toxins upon application by absorbing them. Its a vacuum cleaner for things like dirt and oil and hardens on your skin upon a few mins of application. It’s marketed as the worlds most powerful facial with the purpose of deep cleaning the dirtiest of pores and it does not fall short of that. This product has been in my skincare cabinet for a little over 3 years & I wish I had discovered it sooner. When a friend posted it on her IG and swore by it, I ran after work to get it from the Vitamin Shoppe but soon found out I wasn’t the only girl in Manhattan with hopes of flawless skin. Apparently this was when this product had blown up and was sold out everywhere, I ended up finding it at a beauty supply store in Harlem after hours of searching everywhere. Thankfully now, you can find this $9 mask just about anywhere in the city (Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Rite Aid, Vitamin Stores, local grocery stores, amazon, etc) Being the girl that’s always had troublesome skin this mask promised to help get rid of any impurities on my face, Blackheads and Acne being top of my list. You mix the powder with either water or apple cider vinegar 1:1 & get this cream like consistency which you then apply to the face and leave on for 10 minutes. You start feeling your face tingle & tighten w/in a few mins & before u know it u need a straw to take a sip of water. It’s unlike any mask I’ve ever tried. After washing your face is a bit red but followed with moisturizer and it’s like a new face. Any active pimples/redness diminish & blackheads are gone. I use this once a week subject to how much trouble my face is giving me and I have seen this mask change my skin. If you haven’t tried this, what are you waiting for?! 5/5
AZTEC SECRET-Indian Healing Clay
Quick + Easy Half-Up Party Pony✨
Okay so this hairstyle is suuuuper easy and you can always tweak it to make it more you! This is just a basic starting point for a half up high pony. Sometimes I do a half up top knot instead, it depends on my mood🤪 My hair is long, fine in texture, and naturally blonde but has been colour-treated (with bleach). You can do this look on many different hair textures and lengths! 1️⃣ I started with day-old hair that had a bit of texture spray (I used the eva·nyc - Surf's Up! Texture Spray ) and dry shampoo in it to give it a little more grip. Using a clear elastic, I gather up mostly just my bangs (sometimes I take a bigger section) and pull that hair up and back. 2️⃣ It doesn’t need to be perfect or smooth, I like it to look a little bit messy. I then secure it with the elastic. 3️⃣ Play around with it a bit and adjust it until you’re happy with the placement and how it looks - sometimes I have to start over because I don’t like the way it ended up! 4️⃣ I used my essence - Lash & Brow Gel Mascara to tame my baby hairs and get them out of my face, it works so well! 5️⃣ Lastly, I added some salt spray to my hair to give it more volume and texture, I used the davines - This is a Sea Salt Spray Hope you enjoyed this super simple style!🤗
