Everybody has been asking Dolapo about her skin care routine since she decided to ditch make up and love her skin more. (For those who don’t know about Dolapo’s journey with beauty and make up – Here is the link to the first path of her journey: https://federalcharacter.com/womens-wahala-beauty-without-make-up-and-filter/
She has never felt this way about herself before and she loves how she can rush out of the house without having to look at the mirror a million times. She has spent her free time making research on how to take good care of her hair and skin naturally.
“hey babe, will you finally share the secret to this glow with me?” Her friend, Nonso asked after they finished working out at the gym.
“There are so many ways to nurture your skin and hair naturally – from homemade face mask to scalp massage. Consistency and Determination is a part of this ‘secret’, the determination to find ways to work on myself and love myself more is what has kept me going, Dolapo explained. I will share one of my recipes with you and as you go further, you’d be able to curate more recipes that work for your skin by yourself – one of my favorite recipes is the TURMERIC FACE MASK”
“Turmeric?? Isn’t that used to cook? Nonso asked.
“Plus, how can I incorporate turmeric into my skincare routine?” Nonso queried further.
Dolapo went on to explain the benefits of Turmeric face mask, and its versatility.
Much like Nonso, many women do not know it is possible to use skin care products made entirely with natural ingredients and give yourself much better glow than chemical products. Turmeric is one of those such natural skin care products and I will be sharing other natural skin care recipes.
Turmeric isn’t just used for cooking, it’s a golden miracle powder for skin. Combined with a few kitchen ingredients to make a mask that evens skin tone and reduces inflammation. It’s high in antioxidants and slows down cell damage making it perfect for reducing skin inflammation and evens out your skin tone. It also helps with acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
To make a Turmeric Face Mask, you need the following ingredients:
– Turmeric Powder
– Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
– Organic Honey
– Milk or Yogurt
In a small bowl, mix the ingredients. You are going for a paste like consistency that will stick to your face without dropping.
Apply to your face; wash and dry your face to remove any impurities. Apply the mask using your fingers or a make-up brush.
Allow mask to sit on your face for about 10 to 15 minutes before washing off.
Turmeric Face Mask is one of the recipes that I swear by. It is simple to make, it is also easy on the skin and it’s all natural.
