DIY Glowing Face Mask
A Turmeric face mask is an excellent exfoliating agent and very easy to make right at home with just a few ingredients. Turmeric can benefit your skin as a home remedy for acne, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes. It also reduces skin inflammation due to being high in antioxidants and slows down cell damage. As well, it can help reduce pigmentation that evens out skin tone.
½ teaspoon Turmeric Powder
½ teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon of organic, raw, local honey
½ teaspoon milk or yogurt
[optional] 1 drop lemon essential oil for additional skin brightening
Wash face and hands first to remove impurities and any make-up.
In a small bowl or jar, mix the turmeric powder with the honey, apple cider vinegar, milk or yogurt and optional lemon oil. Try to get a consistency that will stick to your face. Be careful not to make it too thin as it may drip.
Apply the mask carefully avoiding your eyes.
Allow the mask sit on your face for 15–20 minutes then rinse with warm water.
If you have any leftover, you can cover and leave in the fridge for your next application.
Apply twice a week for best results.
If you start to get uncomfortable, wash the mask off right away. Redness may occur after you wash the mask off just like any other detox mask. Use cold water to rinse off and pat dry.
