Turmeric has been growing in popularity lately, ever since it started being touted as one of the newest superfoods. And with good reason – it has numerous health benefits, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. It is great for skincare for the same reason; those properties help eliminate painful acne and other skin conditions. So today we’re sharing a healthy face mask recipe using turmeric to help give your skin its youthful glow back after a long winter.
Here’s what you’ll need for your mask:
- 1/2 cup of oatmeal
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
- 1 tablespoon of Manuka Honey
Begin by pouring the turmeric and honey into the oatmeal. If the honey is super thick like mine is, heat it up in the microwave for 5 or 10 seconds. Mix everything together – it should form a super thick paste.
Add about a tablespoon of water and keep mixing. Add more water until it becomes the consistency of lumpy hummus.
Use a blender to blend it into a pasty consistency, eliminating any large lumps.
Apply it to your face and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Wipe off the excess with a paper towel and toss it in the trash, then rinse thoroughly in the sink with warm water. Finish with a layer of your regular facial moisturizer. Be sure to wear old clothing, as turmeric can stain fabric.
