This mask brightens and soothes, blah blah blah…
Let’s get to the real reason I like it so much: I adore feeling like a kid playing with my food and then smearing it on my face. It’s also great fun to look like an oompa loompa for 15-20 minutes of your day. It can really challenge your beliefs. It’s also great fun to startle your s.o./roomie/family once you’ve applied bright orange goop to your head. Just sorta slowly peek at them from around a door sill with orange face, Milford-man style, and wait for them to notice. It’s great fun.
But seriously. As a natural anti-inflammatory, turmeric is a great topical solution for minimizing puffiness and soothing skin. Honey is a humentant with powerful moisturizing properties and the lactic acid in the yogurt softens and sloughs-off dull skin. I’ve never experienced any staining from the turmeric but those with lighter skin may want to do a patch test, first. My skin always feels rejuvenated after applying this mask.
What you’ll need:
1 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
1/2 tbsp honey (raw honey is best)
1 tsp turmeric
Mix all ingredients and slather on your face. Leave on for 15-20 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water. I like to use muslin cloth when I rinse for a little extra exfoliation.
