Turmeric has been used as a beauty treatment in India for thousands of years. Most of the spice’s benefits come from curcumin which helps with acne, anti-aging, inflammation and skin brightening. It makes the skin feel soft and can be used for removing unwanted facial hair. This mask will not stain your skin!
Kefir is all the rage at the moment in the natural health community. It means “feel good” in Turkish and that’s exactly how you feel after you consume it. It is the ultimate superfood which is made by fermenting milk with kefir grains. Kefir contains a form of lactic acid which helps in balancing ph levels in our body, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and slowing down the aging process. If you can’t get hold of Kefir for this DIY you can use yogurt instead.
- 2 Tablespoons of Kefir
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Turmeric
- Clean your face and/or massage it with coconut oil prior to applying your mask. It helps to remove any oil, dirt and make up residue.
- Apply the mask all over your face and let it sit for about 20 minutes or until it feels tight on the skin.
- Wash it off with warm water, follow with a gentle circular scrubbing action across your face.
- If your skin is still looking a tad yellow, gently scrub the color off with a towel.
This facial will leave you with a stunning youthful glow. Nothing is better than natural, your body will thank you 🙂
