We all pretty much have a standard morning/ evening face cleansing routine. Ensuring we maintain healthy skin is a very important aspect to us ladies- sometimes at a steep cost! So how can we maximize our cleansing routine and amplify the best possible results without breaking the bank or trying the newest product on the market? Try turmeric! Yes, I said it – turmeric!
Turmuric has incredible anti-bacterial properties as well as natural healing powers many women are not aware of. It also contains potent antioxidant properties which can be equally as effective when applied topically as it is when ingested. The wonderful thing about anti-oxidants is that they neutralize free radicals present everywhere around us. Incorporating anti-oxidants to your diet is essential in maintaining health and beauty. Lucky for you we have a way to integrate this super-food into a wonderful anti-oxidant facial mask.
But first, here is a little bit about turmeric:
- Has been used in traditional medicine as brightener (lightening skin) and dark spot eliminator
- Reduces pigmentation
- Evens out skin tone
- Fights acne, rosacea and eczema
- Reduces skin rashes
- Fights free radicals
DIY Turmeric Face Mask
What You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon unsweetened yogurt
1 tablespoon organic raw honey
½ teaspoon organic turmeric powder
It is important to clean the face entirely of make-up, creams, or any other facial cleansers/serums/ powders etc. before using the mask. Mix all the ingredients together until it reaches a consistent paste. Apply to clean, damp skin and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Wash off and apply a moisturizer such as Equate Beauty Strikingly Unique Moisturizing Lotion be bought at Walmart for $3.98 (on sale from $12.87). Pair this with a fantastic facial cleanser that will surely cleanse AND tone your skin at the same time. Studio35 Beauty Witch Hazel Toner/Cleanser is perfect to rid skin of all dirt, oil and makeup before applying the turmeric facial mask. Get it at a Walgreens near you!
Note: Turmeric can temporarily stain skin, so it is recommended to use this mask at night before bed. Your moisturizer will help to lift any remaining pigment as well.
This mask has incredible health benefits, and I generally couple this mask with Equate Ultimate Dark Spot Corrector to help eliminate the appearance of dark spots and blemishes at the start of my day. It is $12.84 (on sale from $16.87) and on Walmart.com.
