DIY: Turmeric Face Mask

Beginning as far back as high school, I have always been an advocate of healthy skin care. Like many unlucky teens I struggled with acne breakouts, making it a necessity to increase my skin care knowledge. As I got older my breakouts greatly decreased but I still maintained my healthy skin care regimen. Lately, because of the summer weather and an increase in exercise, I have noticed my face has not been as clear as it usually is. Being the natural product junkie I am, I did some research and discovered the benefits of using turmeric facial masks to help with my resurfaced skin issues. Turmeric powder aids in fading dark marks, creates glowing skin and helps fight acne without the use of any harsh chemicals. Youtuber Bianca Renee has an amazing tutorial on making and applying a homemade turmeric facial mask.

My current beauty obsession is LUSH fresh handmade cosmetics. After hearing rave reviews about the products, I had to see what the buzz was all about. I purchased Oatifix, a banana face mask for dry skin and Hair Doctor, a deep cleansing scalp treatment. I can’t wait to give these wonderful products a try.
