All Natural and Healthy Honey Turmeric Face Mask
By: Olive Bee
Here’s a mask that really shows great results if done often and leaves your skin feeling smooth and looking bright. It’s all natural and homemade from your own kitchen. No artificial junk. Completely healthy for your skin. It contains the most healing ingredients. And best of all, it only takes about 2 minutes to prepare.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 tsp raw honey
2 tsp besan (gram) flour
1 tsp cold pressed black seed oil
1 tsp sugar granules (omit this if you find this too abrasive for your skin).
2 tsp grape seed oil (olive oil can also be used)
A squirt of lemon
Half a tsp of organic turmeric powder
Benefits of the ingredients for the skin:
~Turmeric combined with cold-pressed black seed oil makes an excellent anti-inflammatory solution.
~Besan flour helps brighten your skin up and lighten any dark spots.
~Raw honey has so many healing properties. If you are struggling with acne it proves to be effective in calming it.
~ Grapeseed oil is light and doesn’t clog pores. It helps with making the application smoother and moisturizes at the same time.
~Sugar granules or any type of mild abrasive element helps to exfoliate dead skin cells.
~Lemon further helps in lightening dark spots.
Here are the steps to making your number ONE favorite mask. Trust me, you won’t want to use store-bought ones after trying this.
I recommend doing this while in the bath/shower because the steam helps open up pores. Once your pores are more exposed, it’s easier for it to be cleaned out.
Prepare your mask in a small dish. Don’t forget to bring it with you to the bathroom.
Now the key is to do as much as you can in the tub to give the pores enough time to open up. So go ahead and do your washing up. For me it’s usually doing my hair and body first then applying the mask.
I would turn off the running water if you’re in the shower then start the application of the mask.
Rub it into your face, scrub it on your nose and down to the neck. I also like to apply it into areas that need a little exfoliating (great for the under the arms by the way so make a bit extra for that)
Leave on for about 5 minutes.
Rinse off with warm water. If you got some in your hair then it’s easy to wash off with some shampoo while you’re still in the tub.
After you’ve stepped out, spritz on some rose water and air dry.
Apply your favorite moisturizer or night cream.
Your skin should feel soft, smooth, clean and looking rejuvenated.
