homemade recipesTurmeric has so many fantastic health benefits that it makes perfect sense to put it on your skin too! You might be thinking that I’m crazy because turmeric tends to stain, but even if some yellow residue is left over after washing this mask off, it’s easy to remove with some toner. And the results are great!
This face mask is posted by Youtuber, Promise Phan (Promise2111). It helps to brighten up your skin making it more radiant. It also prevents acne and fights acne scars, as well as preventing age spots and sun spots. If that wasn’t enough, it leaves your skin feeling super smooth too. If there is such a thing as a superhero of face masks, it sounds like this could be it!

To Make the Face Mask, You’ll Need:

  • 2 tbsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • 2 tbsp natural yogurt
  • Half tbsp honey

Combine the ingredients in a bowl with a spoon, then paint the mask onto your face using a brush (as always, avoiding the eye area). Leave the mask on for 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water to reveal your super soft face.
