DIY Turmeric Face Mask
If you’re a frequent reader of mine, you’ll know that my family lives a very natural lifestyle. This also pertains to my beauty regiment.
I try to only use natural elements like coconut oil (which I use nightly), coffee grounds for exfoliants, oatmeal for moisture etc.
I recently discovered turmeric. It’s been around thousands of years I know, but it just crossed my path. My husband Alex has been using it for years to battle his inflammation due to his lyme disease. A few weeks ago, I had major, major jaw pain due to stretching too much in yoga. (Who knew?? — i thought i was doing something good for my body. Plus I’ve been doing yoga for 20 years.) Alex gave me turmeric and it’s been feeling better ever since. I also use it for arthritis pain I’ve been feeling in my hands due to my art work.
Anyways…back to this face mask.
- 1/4 tsp of turmeric
- 1/2 tsp of raw honey
- 1 tbsp of plain Greek yogurt
Then mix them up and slather on your face. After 20 minutes or so, rinse it off. Your skin will feel marvelous.
Worried about turning your skin yellow? I was.
So I did a test on my forearm.
All was good. So I then tried it on my face. All was good there too!
