As you know skin care is always one of my favourite areas to do research on and I am obsessed with trying out new mixtures that I can do myself. I recently stumbled upon this mixture that works fabulously. Turmeric, before I had never heard of this almost miracle powder. It actually comes from the ginger family and is used for a wide variety of things such as in food and medicine.
Ingredients are as follows;
- 1tbs TURMERIC POWDER
- 1tbs ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
- 1-2tbs MILK
- 1-2tbs COCONUT OIL
TURMERIC – is effective in the treatment of acne due to its antiseptic and antibacterial properties which fight pimples and breakouts. Turmeric face mask not only helps to clear acne scars and inflammation but also reduces oil skin. Turmeric has also been found to inhibit the enzymes that are responsible for producing melanin (dark pigment) in skin cells. It is also an anti-oxidant and helps to protect your skin against environmental toxins.
FLOUR – helps naturally lighten dark spot and dark areas on the skin. It has natural lighten agent that helps fade dark skin.
MILK – boosts collagen production. Slows down fine lines and wrinkles. Protects skin from free radicals that cause premature ageing. Helps fade dark spots and marks.
COCONUT OIL – is a great skin softener and helps with dry and hard skin. coconut oil is good for skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
- For starters I get all the ingredients ready in a small container.
- You may need to add more milk or coconut oil, so that the consistency can be well mixed and easy to apply on the face.
- After the ingredients are well mixed it can applied straight away to the face and neck area.
- I leave my mask on for about 10-30 minutes, wash off with lukewarm water, pat dry and follow up with a moisturizer.
(NOTE: Turmeric Powder can have a strong “curry” like smell and can stain.)
