Natural Beauty: DIY Turmeric Mask

Have you ever met someone and clicked with them right away on, not a only personality level, but a spiritual level as well? Anne of Green Gables referred to it as "Kindred Spirits". I can honestly say that I have found a kindred spirit in today's guest contributor. She is hysterical, which comes across in her writing, as well as beautiful inside and out. Without further adieu, my friend Jenn...

DIY Turmeric Mask

What turmeric is good for: 

 
Acne, it's an anti inflammatory
Great for dark circles
Rat lung worms. Just kidding.
Anti Bacterial 
Oily Skin
Youthful glow
Slows hair growth
                           

RAW Honey for the skin- 

 
Opens pores so they can be unclogged
Anti inflammatory
                           

Milk- 

 
Lactic Acid, removes dead skin cells. So my entire face fell off. {please note that this is a joke}

I like to use all organic, but I couldn't find my organic turmeric, so I settled for the only one I could find hidden behind my GMO Kit-Kat bars. {not a joke}

 
Step one- Make sure you start with a clean face. Clip your hair back because turmeric is used a dye. Also, make sure to put on an old shirt and pants/shorts. {Or do like I did and wear a 3 dollar Wal-Mart mumu. I fought some old ladies over this thing.}

Step 2- Mix one and a half teaspoons of turmeric,1 and half tea spoons of honey, and 1 teaspoon of milk {if you use creamed honey, you can zap it in the microwave for a sec to make it more like a liquid. Or if you're like me and don't have a microwave, use the stove top and heat just until runny- about 1 min or less.} I use glass or metal to make this mask because it can stain plastic.  
 
 
 
Step 3- Mix this bad boy up until all the lumps are gone, then smell of it and gag a little. What? Clear skin is worth a case of dry heaves. You can apply the mask with the back of your spoon, use your fingers, or a foundation brush. Apply over lids, under lids, on neck and all over the face.  If it's too runny to stay on your face, you can always add more turmeric before you apply it to make it thicker. It won't hurt a bit. Add as much as you need to get it the thickness you like or need.
 
 

Step 4- Let set for 30 min. While I'm waiting I shovel these amazing peanut butter bars down.
Then rinse with warm water {the mask, not the bar}. Some people like to take a rag to their face as they rinse, but I'm too lazy for all that. I'd rather rinse it with my hand, then freak out that it got in my eyeball-- then Google if turmeric stains eyeballs. True story.
