POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 6, 2015 Page5 o A Frank De Pas( uale Venture o ALL THAT ZAZZ by Mary N. DiZazzo "Queene Helene" -- Going Strong Since the 1930s Ciao Bella, There are a zillion face rem- edies out there. You must find the one that's right for you, for whatever complexion malady you may face. One standby for over 75 years strong is Queene Helene Mint Julep Face Masque. I'm sure most .of my audience has heard Of it and may even use it. The Mint Julep Masque is one of those standby products that lives up to its name and reputation. In the 1940s my Nana and Mom's salon not only used the product on their customers, but also retailed it. I remember it always around. The all-time favorite green masque helps to extract purities, absorb excess oil and minimize pores. Just one time after use your skin is purified and oil free with a velvety touch complexion. It works so well on normal skin although great for oily and acne prone complexions. The best news is its quite inex- pensive. I've been educating gals for years that you don't have to break the bank for good skin care. The founder of Queene Helene, Richard Estrin, expanded his knowledge of the beauty indus- try by obtaining a degree in Chem- istry. In New York he became a partner in Para Laboratories -- a cosmetics lab. This is where Mr. Estrin launched his hair and skin line of Queene Helene, proudly named after a colleague's daughter, when a fellow sales rep referred to his baby as "Queen Helene!" So for soft clear skin, go green today!

Agnes was the daughter of King Ottokar I of Bohemia, making her a descendant of Saint Ludmila and Saint Wenceslaus, patron saints of Bohemia. Agnes' mother was Constance of Hungary, who was the sister of King Andrew II of Hun- gary, so Agnes was a first cousin to St. Elizabeth of Hungary. At an early age she was sent to the monastery of Treinitz, where she was educated at the hands of the Cistercians. Agnes was engaged to Henry, son of Frederick II, Emperor of Germany, when she was nine. She was over- joyed when Henry married the daughter of the Duke of Austria, as she had offered herself to God and hoped to live a life of austerity and virginity. Her brother then betrothed her to Emperor Frederick, and when .in 1235 Frederick sent for her, she petitioned Pope Gregory. IX to intercede. Frederick was incensed that she would refuse him but, on learning that St. Agnes had left him to become the spouse of Christ, he is said to have remarked: "If she had left me for a mortal man, I would have taken vengeance with the sword, but I cannot take offence because in preference to me, she has chosen the King of Heaven." He released her from their engagement, In 1236 Agnes entered the Order of St. Clare in the monastery of St. Saviour in Prague, which she herself arranged to have built. The Convent was staffed by five nuns sent by St. Clare, Agnes was named abbess soon after and became renowned for her humility, aid to the poor, and her dedication to poverty. She died in Prague on March 2, 1282. She was canonized by Pope John Paul II on November 12, 1989.
