Tumeric Face Mask

Hey everyone!

I present you with a super awesome face mask that helps acne, blemishes, scarring, and dry skin! 

Here is what you will need:


(well all of that except the iPod, biscuits and remote haha :P)
 

This is the Asian spice tin that we have, contains like garam masala, red masala, tumeric powder, salt, mustard seeds, cumin seeds (I think!) But the main ingredient we need is Tumeric powder! :D
 

Tumeric Powder is super yellow and if you've had any experience with it, you will know that it can stain things a yellow shade (can be an intense yellow or pale yellow etc)
But fear not! Tumeric has SOOO many benefits! 
- Turmeric helps you reduce pigmentation on your face and even out your skin tone.
- Can greatly reduce the appearance of acne
- Help in maintaining the elasticity of the skin and prevent stretch marks.
- Turmeric has also been dubbed the wonder product because of its ability to fight free radicals. This excellent anti-oxidant is known to help prevent various diseases as well as cancer
- Regular washing with turmeric reduces facial hair growth significantly - Facial hair haha.
- Helps reducing gum infections
And many more!

But... we can't just apply Tumeric all over our face because you'll end up looking like a Simpson! Haha :P so here is what we're going to add to this mask :)


Natural Organic Yoghurt
 

Rice Flour (or you can use Gram flour too... just not regular plain flour haha)
 

Extra Virgin Olive Oil! Don't use anything other than Extra firgin, otherwise you'd might as well rub frying fat on your face eurgh. 
Basically Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been a well kept beauty secret for having a young looking and wrinkle free face. But don't worry, the oils in this are too big to be absorbed by your skin, therefore you won't break out or anything (if you're one of those who gets worried about applying oil to oily skin).
This won't make you break out at all :)


1 tablespoon - Yoghurt
1 tablespoon - Rice Flour
1/2 table spoon - Tumeric Powder
1/2 table spoon - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Mix it all together to form a nice consistency, then apply it to your face. It'll look a little something like this...


Hahahahahahahaha it looks so weird!

So wait around 20-25 minutes, you'll start to see that the mask will harden and it may start to flake off if you move your face. Wash it with warm water and see the results!

When I used this mask and after I'd washed my face, I noticed that my skin was stained yellow (boo!) but, my face was so soft and smooth because of the Olive oil, and my scarring had faded a little (didn't look too intense). My face felt a little dry afterwards but that's because of the PanOxyl cream I use that's causing my skin to dry up. 
But nonetheless, this mask really does work wonders.

By the way, the mixture can be used for 3 or 4 people :)
