You may not know, but turmeric has many medicinal and beauty benefits. It’s high in antioxidants and slows down cell damage; making it perfect for reducing skin inflammation and evening out your skin tone. It’s also said to help with acne, psoriasis and eczema. Basically, it’s a golden miracle powder for your skin!
So how exactly do you incorporate turmeric into your skincare routine? Just make a DIY turmeric face mask.
How Do You Make a Turmeric Face Mask?
Here’s What You Need:
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoon of organic honey
1 teaspoon milk or yogurt
Step 1: Mix
In a small bowl, mix the turmeric powder, apple cider vinegar, honey and milk or yogurt. You’re going for a paste-like consistency that will stick to your face without dripping.
You can cook with turmeric, too.
Step 2: Apply to face
Before applying your turmeric face mask, wash and dry your face to remove any makeup or impurities. Keep in mind that turmeric will turn fabric yellow; so consider putting on an old shirt that you don’t mind getting stained during your turmeric spa session.
Apply the mask using your fingers or a makeup brush, careful to avoid the eye area.
Step 3: Rest
Allow the mask to sit on your face for about 10 to 15 minutes. Take a load off, browse Instagram and fantasize about your soon-to-be brighter, healthier skin.
Step 4: Rinse
Rinse off the mask with warm water. You can also use a washcloth; but remember, it will get stained. Speaking of staining, don’t be alarmed if your skin is still looking a little yellow after you remove the mask. The turmeric might temporarily stain your skin if you’re pale, but it will go away in a few hours. You can also use a simple cleansing oil to get rid of the yellowish hue.
