principessa-di-orion asked:
What are some good masques for redness, blackheads, and oiliness?


Try using masks with clay! Clay is awesome at drawing out all the gunk deep into the pores like blackheads and oils. Just make sure to follow the directions on how long to keep the mask on. Many people (myself included) want to leave the mask on for as long as possible thinking you’ll get better results but since clay masks are drying you don’t want to over dry your skin and cause premature wrinkles. Just a heads up :)

Try masks like

Boots Botanics Iconic Clay Mask $9 at Target and Walgreens


Queen Helene Mint Julep Face Mask $3 at Walgreens, Walmart, Ulta and online (cult favorite)

Freeman Clay Mask Mint & Lemon $4 at most drugstores

Want to Un-Learn Your Socialized Niceness and Reinforce your Assertiveness?



Practice By Using the Following Phrases When the Opportunity Arrises:

"I’m not interested."

"(Please) Leave me alone."

"I’d rather you not."

"That doesn’t interest me at all."

"You need to stop."


"That’s not what I said."

"I don’t owe you/anyone an explanation."

"That’s too personal."

"I would like some privacy."

"That doesn’t work for me."

"I’d like to be by myself."

"I’m going to leave now."

These words and phrases might evoke thoughts of reacting to someone bringing unwanted sexual advances. But how can we expect girls and women to be able to say no in suchextreme circumstances when we’ve been socialized to avoid confrontation in such “small” circumstances as when a man is talking us when we’d rather be left alone?

You can practice exercising and nurturing your assertiveness (and confidence) by incorporating phrases like this in your day-to-day life.

Not just useful for minor situations with men, but ANY situations where our boundaries are being violated.

Five reasons why comparing Israeli and Palestinian death totals is a misleading way to judge the conflict


One of the most common and misleading tactics deployed against Israel by its critics is to compare the number of dead Israelis and dead Palestinians, and use the figures to portray Palestinians as victims of Israeli aggression.

Rockets, sirens, explosions – none of it will shake us. Israel stands strong in the face of terror. 
Shabbat Shalom.
