A Tried & Tested approval of Turmeric
Whenever I feel the need for an extra “umph” and have alot of to-dos on my beauty list I usually turn to turmeric! This powerful antioxidant is a super food for your skin and body.
If ever you wanted an all-in-one, a super ingredient… this is it:
– Brightens skin naturally and gets rid of those stubborn dark spots.
– Exfoliates your skin and leaves it silky smooth.
– Tightens your skin and reduces inflammation.
– Gets rid of those fine line wrinkles.
– Turmeric is an absolute phenomenon!
This miracle spice has an uncountable number of health benefits (a MUST read): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/andrew-weil-md/turmeric-health-have-a-happy-new-year_b_798328.html
You can use this as a face mask or body mask and just lounge around the bathroom or outside reading a magazine for 15-20 minutes.
Turmeric Fix (Face)
Warning: This is some messy fun! Best done outdoors or in a bathroom.
2 heaping teaspoons of Turmeric
3 tablespoons of Chickpea Flour
1 teaspoon of honey
A splash of milk
(For the Body Scrub just triple the amount of all ingredients and add a splash of virgin olive oil)
– Mix it all up in a bowl until it is thoroughly blended into a paste and apply to a clean face (wash your face before).
– Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes. It will crack and dry up and that’s good.
– Now this part is messy! Gently rub off the mask from your face. (Dry-rub)
– Wash your face and take a good close look in the mirror to admire the new and improved you!
