Turmeric Face Mask Recipe
If you already have a favorite face mask recipe, then turmeric can be added to anything for an extra healthy kick. If home-brewed cosmetics are a new thing, then a turmeric face mask can be put together with just a few ingredients. To get started, assemble these items:
• 2 tablespoons of Oatmeal
• 1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric
• 1-2 tablespoons of Milk
• 1/2 tablespoon of Honey
1. Gentle wash your face to allow your skin to absorb the nutrients.
2. Mix together the oatmeal and the turmeric until the color is even.
3. Add the Honey and 1 tablespoon of Milk to create a paste thick enough to stay still when smoothed over your face.
4. If it isn’t very easy to spread, add a little more Milk.
5. Spread your turmeric face mask with your fingertips evenly from your forehead to your chin, keeping the area around your eyes clear.
Removing Face Mask
You should leave the mask on for about ten minutes, so sit back and relax until its time to wash your turmeric face mask off. After ten minutes, you can rinse it off. For the best benefits, alternate with cool and warm water while you rinse it off and finish with a splash of cold water and then pat your face down with a clean towel. After removing your turmeric face mask, applying a facial moisturizer will help keep the moisture and nutrients absorbed into your skin.
Things like cream, filtered water, and yogurt can be substituted for milk and the honey is optional, so feel free to try new turmeric recipe combinations and find what feels the best and produces the best results for you and your skin. After a few relaxing sessions with your turmeric face mask, there will be a noticeable difference in the health of your skin.
Turmeric Mask Precautions
Just like any cosmetic, a turmeric face mask comes with certain precautions. To see if your skin will react well to the new product, try leaving it on a test patch of skin in a less sensitive area for a few minutes to see if you show any signs of allergy or sensitivity. If you make your mask with any kind of citrus or essential oil, then be mindful to check if it will be too harsh for your skin, but maybe, a turmeric face mask might be exactly what your face needs to look its very best.
