About a month ago, I started making a face mask using turmeric and a few other ingredients. I have definitely noticed a positive difference in my skin since from the first time I've used this mask. My skin is smoother and more clear than it has been in a long time.
I started using this mask because I need to take better care of my skin; and in my opinion, the best way to do that is naturally. So, without further ado, below is a list of the ingredients I used to create this mask and their benefits.
1/2 Teaspoon of Turmeric
Turmeric has a number of health benefits, but I will list the benefits as they pertain to this mask. Turmeric provides the following:
- Lightens blemishes
- Gives skin a natural glow
- Reduces skin infections
- Reduces wrinkles
- Fights against acne
- Natural antiseptic
- Good for acne
- Naturally exfoliates
- Stimulates blood circulation
- Contains Vitamins A, K and B-complex
- Moisturizes skin
1 Teaspoon of Greek Yogurt
- Smooths skin
- Reduces acne
Combine the dry ingredients to the bowl first, then the almond oil and finally the yogurt. Stir well.
Apply the mask all over your face and let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes. While you wait, put the left over mask in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator.
Once the time is up, rinse your face with warm water and voila! Soft and supple skin. I love the way my skin feels after using this mask.
Side note: Because of the turmeric, this mask will stain fairer skin. No worries, just use less turmeric. Instead of 1/2 of a teaspoon, use 1/4.
