Here is a simple DIY face mask recipe that uses ingredients you can easily find in your pantry and fridge. The yogurt in this mask is rich in lactic acid, which can help exfoliate and brighten the skin. The honey is a natural humectant, which can help lock in moisture and soothe the skin. The turmeric powder is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which can help calm redness and irritation. As with any new skin care product, it’s a good idea to do a patch test on a small area of your skin first to make sure you don’t have an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients. —Vita Daily
- 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt and honey until they are well combined. Add the turmeric powder to the bowl, and mix again until the mixture is smooth and even in colour. Apply the mixture to your face, avoiding your eyes and mouth. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes, or until it has dried. Rinse off the mask with warm water and pat your face dry with a towel.
