I seldom do mask, especially those homemade, natural masks. The only reason is because I am LAZY. Until recently my face becomes bad from acne (I blame my facial session for it but maybe it’s because of my hormones too, who knows but I STILL think my facial caused it) I have no choice but to try every remedy I can find. And I found that turmeric face mask is not that hard to do so I thought why don’t I give it a try. It is said to moisturize the skin, reduce acne and scars, lighten the dark circle and brighten the skin.
Basically for this mask you will need these simple ingredients:
- Turmeric powder
- Natural yogurt or Greek Yogurt
- Natural honey
Mix them well in a small bowl and you are good to go. Make sure it doesn’t drip because turmeric can stain your clothes! Adjust the amount you are putting to your own liking until it becomes a paste and apply on your face. Let it dry for about 30 minutes (I waited until 1 hour, you will feel that tightness on your face but that is fine) and wash it with cold water. Always use a soft and clean towel to wipe your face afterwards. The turmeric powder I used did not stain that much on my face so it was quite easy to wash them off (Pheww! Or I might be taking leave from work tomorrow for looking like The Simpsons!) and yes it feels good because my skin feels smoother even though my die-hard-pimples are still there. I definitely will do this again and see if there is any changes to my skin.
First try and let’s keep going!
