Ever have a weekend from hell?
I won’t bore you with the details, but this past one was a doozy!
In the aftermath, a person might turn to classic, reliable, comfort foods like mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, or meatloaf to recover.
With the weekend’s stress wrecking havoc on my skin, I also turned to a classic - Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque.
Yep, that’s right. I reached past the pricier brands in my bathroom cabinet, all boasting the latest and greatest in high-tech ingredients, for this simple drugstore cheapie.
Like comfort food, I knew Queen Helene would make it all better.
I smoothed the thick, green clay on cleansed skin. The fresh, mint scent gave me an instant aromatherapy boost while the mask dried. It took about 10 minutes.
After spending a few more minutes running around the house pretending to be a space monster, I wet a washcloth with very warm water, squeezed out the excess and placed it over my face. I held it there a few minutes to soften the mask before scrubbing it off.
The result: Tightened pores, eradicated whiteheads and fresh, perky skin that practically glowed.
Queen Helene has been promoted from my bathroom cabinet product cave to my countertop.
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque is available at most drug and discount stores for under $4 a tube.
