Today’s been a steamy day here in NYC, and the excess heat and humidity can really aggravate my skin. 🔥😡It’s times like these when my skin is prone to inflammation. So after a day well spent brunching, roaming around the city and catching up with friends, I’m here chillin’ with my yogurt tumeric mask, tryin’ to calm my skin down! LOVE ME A GOOD YOGURT MASK, and @itsalexdvorak I took your advice and added some turmeric and I gotta say, I’M OBSESSED! This mask is amazing for multiple reasons: one it’s cheap, two it’s easy, three it’s ALL NATURAL, and four it WORKS!
Here are 5 AMAZING benefits of doing a yogurt face mask regularly:
1. Yogurt is extremely soothing and calming to the skin. It contains high amounts of zinc making it super anti-inflammatory, so it’s great for those struggling with acne, rosacea or any other skin condition. The high levels of zinc also helps regulate sebum production so your skin doesn't produce as much oil.
2. Yogurt is rich in probiotics which helps to balance the microbiome on your skin by replenishing it with the good bacteria that we often strip by using harsh chemicals found in conventional beauty products. A more balanced skin microbiome leads to clear, smooth, hydrated skin!
3. Yogurt is rich in antioxidants that prevent free radicals from damaging the skin, making it super anti-aging!
4. Yogurt is a great exfoliant! The lactic acid in yogurt helps to gently remove dead skin cells, without irritating. In turn, this stimulates faster cell regeneration!
5. The lactic acid in yogurt also helps brighten the skin, so this is great for anyone struggling with hyper-pigmentation or acne scaring!
All in all, yogurt face masks are FAB and I think we can all benefits from a good old fashion yogurt mask! 👍🏼You can either slather on yogurt all over your face or add other ingredients like: turmeric, honey, cacao, oats, lemon juice etc. Play around with it and have fun! Skincare doesn’t have to be so complicated! In the comments below, tell me when you'll be doing your next yogurt mask!🤗

Skin food ✨ I used to hate greens when I was younger, I avoided them at all cost. I was such a picky eater. I still don’t like to eat salads 24/7 but I find that one of the best ways to get these vital greens into my diet is by juicing or throwing a handful of spinach/cucumber/kale etc. into a blender and trying to camouflage the flavor with extra ginger/ or fruit! My skin has gotten noticeably better since I started incorporating green juice into my life & feel way less sluggish throughout the day. Sometimes you have to suck it up and drink the juice because your body needs it. I’m not perfect, I have lots of cheat days. I eat processed food and I feel like crap the next day. I get back on track and start making my smoothies and juicing! For me, healthy skin comes from the inside. You can use all the amazing skincare products in the world, but the main focus should always be what’s going on internally. Like they say, you are what you eat. If your diet is lacking, it’s really going to show on your face and effect your mood and energy etc. 🥒🥦🍏🌱🥝🍐 #guthealth#skinhealth#skinfood
I’ve had a few people msg me about Retinol (Vitamin A) since I posted the Catalyst Retinol video so I thought I’d expand. There are many forms of Retinol and the right percentage & form is vital for acceptance and delivery to your cells, in clinic we work with 3 different forms to either begin to acclimatise your skin or take results to another level. Your current skin health determines what type of Retinol is introduced so I really can’t recommend a specific Retinol if I have not seen your skin 💗✌🏽✨ #Repost @ocosmedics ・・・
You + Retinol = Skin Health While You Sleep! Potent Retinol Serum (0.5%) and Retinol Concentrate (1%) offer visible anti-aging benefits to dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promote a firmer more elastic skin texture and even out skin tone.
Applied every evening skin is left healthy, calm, super hydrated and renewed. #OCosmedics

Peel your way to brighter and firmer-looking skin with this ultra-luxurious peel-off brightening mask. Special vitamins and ingredients work to improve and even the appearance of skin tone, minimize the appearance of pores and improve skin’s elasticity so your skin feels softer and looks more radiant.
Retinol - one of the most popular anti-aging products - doesn’t work for everyone. Traditional retinol products can cause a lot of irritation, redness, and dryness with the skin, so people stop using it. 🙊
AlphaRet, on the other hand, is formulated with glycolic acid to still get the great, youthful benefits of retinol - but without all the irritating side effects! It can be used every single night (starting day 1 too), and won’t cause redness, itching, etc.
With @skinbetter’s AlphaRet, you can expect
✨Better skin tone
✨More even skin texture
Today may you be wild a free. You don’t need to be adventurous, you don’t need to do anything wild. Allow yourself to let go of the self expectations, judgement, and negative self talk, even if you feel crap, even if you’re in pain, even if you stay in bed all day. Phone a friend, watch your favorite movie, have a bath. Freeing yourself from yourself and your busy mind will dissolve the weight you carry on your shoulders and bring you to a place of self acceptance, which is nicest thing you could ever do for yourself. #WhenILovedMyselfEnough#SelfAcceptance#WildAndFree#NewNormal#GetOutOfYourOwnWay

Did you know that wearing sunscreen does not allow your body to absorb vitamin D?
Vitamin D deficiency is all too common and can lead to health complications like depression, poor bone health, anxiety, low immunity, poor heart health, and even cancer.
Getting 15-30 minutes of sun exposure each day is an easy (and cheap!) way to increase your vitamin D levels. 🌞
But be mindful of SAFE sun exposure! When your skin starts to burn, it’s telling you that you’ve had too much and it is ready for some shade. Wearing clothes or a hat with UPF protection is a great way to protect your body in the sun if you aren’t sitting under a tree or beach umbrella. Safe, non-toxic sunscreens are another way to help protect your skin from burning, but do your research! Not all sunscreens are created equally.
Who else is getting their vitamin D on this weekend? 🙋🏼♀️

Since introducing these three tiny capsules into my morning routine, I cannot believe how they have impacted my health and changed my life.
People know I don’t bullshit about things - if it doesn’t work, I will not recommend you waste your money, at all, period.
I have tried A LOT of multivitamins to assist with my my health concerns, particularly anaemia, B12 and iron deficiency but have never had ANY success.
Underweight, fatigued, lack of sleep, impaired brain function (brain fog), forgetfulness, irritability, bloating, irregular bowel movements, stomach cramps and irregular periods left me feeling really awful.
As human beings, we were not created to take manufactured drugs - natural is always best and is what the body prefers.
33 serves of fruit and vegetables encapsulated in a vegan, cruelty free capsule.
I truely don’t understand when people tell me oh it’s too expensive to be healthy.. but do you shop? you go out on the weekend? you buy a coffee for yourself every morning? buy take out for lunch?
Investing in your health is probably THE most important thing to do for yourself and your loved ones - it’s all a matter of priorities.
Health starts from the INSIDE and then presents on the OUTSIDE, why wait until it’s too late to invest in yourself?
Feed and nourish that body of yours correctly and watch the magic happen ✨☺️
Did you know you should 🚫 never wash your face with hot water? 💦 It is a myth that your pores open and close (they do not), and it can damage the blood vessels in your face as well as dehydrate your skin.
Non foaming cleansers or cream cleansers are a milder alternative to foaming cleansers. They do not lather with water and are more helpful for sensitive or dry skin types. The main problem is that they leave a residue on your skin and many people just don't feel it cleans enougth. But is this true?
Let's review the science behind cleansers. Ingredients used in a typical cleanser contain Surfactants.
The word surfactant is short for "surface active agent" and has a hydrophilic (water-loving) head and a lipophilic (oil-loving) or hydrophobic (water-hating) tail. This means it can bring things together like oil and water.
When used as a cleanser, they are able to attract oils, dirts, sweats to itself and rinse off easily.
Be at ease that they do definitely clean. The non foaming cleansers also contain ingredients that provides more conditioning effect. Remember how good your hair feels when it's conditioned?
Same thing happens to your face. Clean and conditioned! 🤩🤩 Do you use non foaming cleanser?
For the first time in many years, longer than I can remember, I woke up without a headache! 😁 Brain fog 🌫 is lifting! It's day 2 of the low FODMAP diet. I have no idea what the cause of my brain/gut/ skin problems may be, but I'm off to a great start!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I always thought I was just not a morning person and that waking up grumpy, angry, and in pain was just my norm. The prospect of waking up feeling refreshed is 💫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Still have no idea what to eat, so suggestions are welcome!! Trying to be mostly vegan too, which makes this all the more trying.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stretching moment of peace and delicious healthy food.

Hey everyone. Today I’m reviewing:
AZTEC SECRET - INDIAN HEALING CLAY
Bentonite clay has been known for centuries for its skin healing properties.
I know by now you all have seen this product EVERYWHERE. Apparently, it’s everyone’s favourite. So I decided to buy it and see what the hype was about. 🤷♀️
I bought it online for 2000 PKR.
The jar said to mix the clay with equal parts of apple cider vinegar or water and apply directly to the skin.
Now if you read the details given on the jar, you will see that they have hyped up their own product. They called it “The world’s most powerful facial” I mean..... okay we’ll see.
I tried this with both apple cider vinegar and water. In my opinion, dont use it with water. It doesn’t dissolve with water well and the application isn’t very smooth. It works really well with apple cider vinegar.
When I applied it I felt nothing, like a normal clay mask. As it started drying, I DID feel my skin pulsate (which is also given in the details on the jar) I felt this tingly-stretchy feeling on my skin which was quite satisfying. When it dried completely, I washed it off to find my face look like a TOMATO. My skin got really red ( it was also mentioned on the jar and is normal, no need to freak out) my skin felt hot too. At first I was REALLY impressed. The bentonite clay increases blood circulation on the surface of the skin which is very good for the skin as it provides more oxygen. It also helps in forming new skin cells. I would advise you all to apply aloe vera gel right after washing the mask off.
Here’s what disappointed me a little:
I went to college the next day after applying this mask I thought my skin would look cleaner and healthier that day, but it pretty much got back to being the same: problematic and oily. I used this mask once a week, for a month then. Every time, it got back to being the same. It did shrink some of my pimples though. This has no effect on blackheads and doesn’t help with the oil on my skin. In fact, I noticed my skin to be more oily ever since I started using it.
This is a great facemask, I’m not saying it isn’t. It is “powerful” too. But I think it has become REALLY overrated.
