It’s DIY time! What better way to spend your day than with a fun skincare project using readily available ingredients from your kitchen. I have concocted a simple recipe that will remove blackheads, clean out pores and lend a softer and more youthful complexion. For those of you with severe acne, eczema or sensitive skin, I would not recommend this for you but for the rest of the stragglers, I really hope you enjoy this mask and always remember to do a patch test to check for allergies or irritation. Let’s make it!
- Turmeric – 1/8 Teaspoon (a pinch)
- Unflavoured Gelatine or Agar-Agar Powder (vegan) – 1 Tablespoon
- Hot Milk – 2 Tablespoons
- Mix all the ingredients until it forms a sticky tacky consistency.
- Apply to your clean face using a makeup brush (avoid your eyes, eyebrows, and mouth).
- Leave on for 20 minutes, peel off the mask then rinse away with warm water.
- If your face still has a light turmeric stain, don’t stress, just wash it again, it comes right off.
The use of turmeric in this at-home facial is great for treating blemishes and rejuvenating the skin as it contains anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. You can choose to replace the Turmeric in this recipe with Honey which is full of antioxidants and is great for it’s soothing and healing properties.

I need to give this a try! Thanks for sharing!
Thats wonderful! You are very welcome.
OMG! That’s really smart!!!! I would have never thought about this! You could virtually do this with other things! Like moringa leaves perhaps! There’s another idea for you! Or perhaps I’ll share a version with moringa on my blog!
Hi Hari, Thank you very much! I will look for moringa leaves/powder at my local health food store. Please feel free to create it on your blog, I look forward to reading about it!
Definitely trying this!! I’ve made turmeric and honey masks before and they work wonders!! Thanks for the follow 🙂
