It’s extremely beneficial because it not only lightens up your skin, but it also reduces pores, clears up acne and eczema, and relieves redness and inflammation. Plus, it makes unattractive dark spots and under eye circles fade away.
It’s also beneficial for reducing unwanted facial hair. Last, but not least, it is a powerful anti-aging agent, which removes wrinkles successfully while leaving your skin soft and smooth.
Best of all, this mask is nearly cost-free as it only uses a few cheap and easily available ingredients, the most important of which is turmeric.
This super powerful spice originates in India, which accounts for most of the world’s supply, and is typically obtained in powder form. Turmeric has a deep yellow-orange color and distinct taste. The process of production includes picking, bubbling and drying of turmeric plant roots in extremely hot ovens, after which these are ground into fine powder. As it a strong coloring agent, turmeric is commonly used for dyeing, even though it’s n.one use is in cooking.
Whenever you use it, make sure you are wearing older clothes as staining is likely. The same goes for this turmeric face mask. Plus, wearing gloves is also advisable as your fingernails and skin will also turn yellow. The rest of the props you need include a small bowl, a teaspoon, a tablespoon, flour, turmeric, almond oil, and regular milk.
In a bowl, mix 1 teaspoon of turmeric with 2 tablespoons of flour. Add 1 tablespoon of almond oil and just enough milk to make a paste that is neither too liquid nor thick. In general, 3-4 tablespoons will suffice. Once you blend these four ingredients, your turmeric mask is ready.
When applying this mask, be cautious of your eyebrows – as this treatment is used for removing facial hair, among other things, you may end up with fewer eyebrow hairs. The same applies for your hairline. You can freely apply it under your eyes, but make sure you don’t go near your eyelashes.
The mask should stay on your face for about 20 minutes, after which you should rinse it off with lukewarm water. Then pat-dry your face. As we mentioned earlier, turmeric stains everything it comes in touch with, so make sure you protect your furniture along with your clothes. Be aware that your skin may be a bit yellowish after you remove the mask. Simply wash your face once again. You can use a gentle face cleanser this time and finish with a light face lotion. Repeat this treatment at least once a week.
This mask is all natural and uses only a few common ingredients. In fact, it won’t cost you more than a few dollars.
