There were days that my skin didn’t always look how I wanted, especially after the long exhausted road trips that I barely remembered to use sun block or lotion. When my skin felt dry and liveless, I have some homemade recipes to bring back that cheerful shine.
I am quite experimental when it comes to personal care and beauty products, that is why I change them really often. My husband hated me buying new soap and lotion every other weeks. I came across several disappointments and really amazing products like my new hair serum from the Caribbean that has repaired my damage hair recently.
But frankly, many good things can be created at home. My honey yogurt and turmeric mask is my favorite recipe I use every now and then to bring back that glowing smoothness to my skin.
Turmeric is one of my favourite ingredients for both food and beauty potion. Turmeric is known for its Ayurvedic values as inflammatory, anti-aging, and antiseptic agents. When I was a kid, my mother often used fresh turmeric paste on the bruises on my skin which helped it heal and prevent from infection.
The glistening, amber lava of honey is high in antioxidant agent that helps fighting the skin damage. Honey makes your skin soft and glow.
Yogurt helps in moisturizing and the light acidic character help removing the dead skin cells. It makes your skin feel smooth and rejuvenating. I usually use Greek yogurt for the mask, because the thick and rich texture helps the mask stay on the skin better.
Honey Yogurt and Turmeric Mask
1 cup cold Greek yogurt (or thick natural yogurt)
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp organic turmeric powder
You will also need
A clean mixing bowl and spoon for stirring
A sterilized jar for storing if not use immediately
Combine yogurt, honey and turmeric in the mixing bowl and stir until smooth. Keep in the jar and refrigerate upto a week.
Wash your face with mild soap, rise and pat dry.
Apply the mask on the face and keep it for 15 minutes.
Rise well with cold water and your regular moisturizer afterward.
The mask was cold and soothing. I love the natural smells of honey and yogurt which help me relax while the mask stayed on my face. My skin felt soft and alive after a quick wash. There is no harm in trying this unless you are allergic to the ingredients, otherwise why not… all ingredients are right there in your kitchen.
Have a beautiful day,
