Wednesday: Do it Yourself Challenge!

4 Ways to Incorporate Turmeric Into Your Beauty Routine

I’ve mentioned the power of tumeric before, but now we will explore it as a prime ingredient of homemade facial masks! For those who are not aware, turmeric has medicinal properties such as: A strong anti-inflammatory agent that fights against foreign invaders, and also helps to repair any damage to tissue. It is an antioxidant, which assists in the protection of your body from free radicals (single atoms with unpaired electrons). There are so many more amazing things that turmeric can do, and using it as part of a homemade recipe for a mask, only seems fitting.

Turmeric is very good for clearing acne and dark spots, which is my topic for discussion today. If you are anything like me, the thought of a pimple makes you nervous because if they pop, they leave those pesky marks on your beautiful skin. I’ve tried a series of recipes that include fresh aloe vera, or lemon juice and tea tree oil. However, I have never attempted to put a turmeric mask to the test. One thing to remember about turmeric is that it stains easily, so if you don’t want to walk around with an orange face, you must add some sort of fatty barrier to help block your skin from the deep yellow colour.

I’ve collected 3 recipes that we will examine more closely:

So, how long should you be using your face mask before you see the results? Well, experts say that if you apply your mask for about 10-15 minutes a day, twice a week, within 4-5 weeks you should see results. I will be making these masks/scrub over the weekend, and will gladly be the guinea pig for the experiment! I will chart my use and take pictures of my skin’s progress each week, starting on Sunday. You will discover with me, the power of turmeric! Happy Wednesday everyone!
