Turmeric Mask For Glowing Skin
Turmeric is a bright yellow spice commonly used in Indian cuisine. However, what most people don’t know is that Turmeric has many medicinal uses including a brightening agent for the skin. Indian brides are known to make a full body turmeric mask the night before the wedding to brighten their skin for the wedding day. So here is a great Turmeric mask recipe that you can make at home to give your skin a healthy glow!
Warning: Turmeric powder can stain fair skin, but if you are feeling extra curious then do this mask before bedtime, so that the yellow tint has time to wear off before leaving the house.
This mask is best for those with darker complexions, and you can even add a small bit of turmeric to your moisturizer to give yourself a lovely golden glow everyday.
INGREDIENTS FOR TUMERIC MASK:
- ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder.
- 2 tablespoons flour ( to thicken the mask, if you have a gluten allergy then omit )
- A few drops of honey
- For Oily Skin: ¼ cup plain yogurt & few drops of fresh lemon juice
- For Dry Skin: 2 tbsp coconut oil, sweet almond oil or olive oil
Mix the ingredients together and apply on face and neck. Let sit for 15-20 minutes, then wash with warm water and buff off remaining stain with a warm washcloth ( make sure to use a washcloth that you do not mind staining).
Remember that turmeric stains, so be careful when making this mask! It is best to wear an old T-shirt or clothing that you don’t mind staining if any drips occur.
Use this mask before a big event or night out to add an extra golden glow!
