Troy Thompson, Aspiring Clothing Designer, Homemade Mask Recipe For Tightening Pores

It was a scorcher when we spotted Troy Thompson and her brightly colored turban just steps away from one of our favorite lunch spots. We loved how the aspiring clothing designer kept her strands protected from the sun's harmful UV rays.

"I'm really into different prints, and power clashing really describes my personality. This was a fabric that was $4 a yard and I just bought one yard," said Thompson. "I get tired of wearing the wrap the same way, so I do whatever looks good -- put it on and start tucking."

Thompson's head wrap styling is pretty impressive, but what really blew our minds was her flawless skin. Her secret: a homemade mask recipe made with turmeric, avocado and a little yogurt.

"It helps to tighten your pores and gives you moisture at the same time," explains Thompson. "It doesn't have preservatives in it because they're 'live' foods. You want to make sure you do it on a weekly basis and keep it as fresh as possible because this is going on your face and into your skin."
