Hello again ☺ I’m not 100% sure if I’ve posted a turmeric face mask recipe before I just thought it is so relevant now that the weather is getting warmer. Nobody wants dull, lifeless looking skin and this face mask will give you the opposite: bright, glowing skin!! I know it is traditional for many cultures and it’s one of my favourites because it is homemade and the ingredients are so easy to purchase.
1 tbsp turmeric
1 tsp plain flour
1/3 tsp bicarbonate soda
2 tbsp lemon juice or water
So you literally mix all the ingredients together into a bowl. Should be a nice, smooth, runny consistency. Use a small brush to apply it to your face and leave to dry. After about 15-20 minutes wash off with warm water, pat dry and then rub oil over your face.
I have two recipes to use depending on your skin type, I’ve always been interested in natural homemade alternatives and these are both great.
1) Best for oily skin
2 tbsp crushed oats
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
Enough water to make a paste.
Mix together, apply to the face then wash off after 6 mins using warm water and pat dry.
2) Best for dry skin
2 tbsp crushed oats
1 tsp organic honey
Enough milk to make it runny.
Mix together, apply to the face, leave on for 10 mins then wash off using warm water and pat dry.
I would recommend to use at least twice a week for best results. After using these facials your face will feel free and refreshed because your skin has absorbed in all that goodness. Once you’ve washed off your face use a light oil such as almond oil to keep your skin soft and moisturized.
*You know it’s good for your skin if you can eat it too 🙂
I brought this clay mud mask a while back and finally decided to use it, literally the minute I tore the top a sweet aroma came from the clay it reminded me of a sweet chewing gum I used to have as a kid.
It was really nice and easy to apply to my skin, I used my fingers rubbing it in slightly, once it dried up on my face it went a bit flaky and didn’t leave my face uncomfortably tight as other face masks do. I used some warm water to wash it off and pat dried my face before rubbing in some oil. Afterwards my skin felt so smooth, refreshed and soft 🙂 the cost is £1.99 from Holland and Barretts it’s a little pricey but for very good quality and 1 sachet has at least three uses. Using any clay mask is a great way to just relax for a few moments and enjoy your own company.
