Hello, ladies! We hope you are enjoying these beautiful summer days as we are! Sun, pool water, mixed drinks can however be a little harmful to our skin. Sure, the younger ones don’t really care about this, but us, in our thirties, definitely do! So, today we’ve decided to share an amazing homemade face mask, which is our go-to helper when we have some skin problems.
We’ve tried many tricks, from expensive creams and masks to homemade beauty potions. This one stands out and works a bit more than anything else.
You’ll need these 4 ingredients:
- White yogurt
- Homemade honey
First, let’s go over the effect of each one of them.
What is turmeric? You can’t buy this yellow spice everywhere in Slovakia, we recommend you get it though, because besides being tasty and using it in many dishes, it’s extremely healthy! It definitely belongs to the top 10 superfoods list we advise you to eat.
Turmeric is a strong antioxidant, which acts against skin ageing. It supports the production of collagen and keeps it firm and without wrinkles. It can also soothe sunburnt skin and prevent acne. It will help you with the fight against uneven skin tone too. Well, isn’t that a miracle!
Lactic acid, which is in the yogurt, calms irritated, dry skin. Thanks to enzymes it can
tighten pores, naturally get rid of dead skin cells and optimize the level of skin moisture. It reduces the signs of stress and skin aging as well.
Its composition makes the skin less oily, tightens pores and leaves the skin pure. Lemon has a slight whitening effect, so it can make the blotches or darker spots after scars disappear. On the top of everything, it makes the skin brighter and even.
One of the oldest cosmetic tricks used by our grandmas when there were no fancy creams for every skin type. Its healing effects reduce the production of acne. It has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits. It protects skin against toxins. It is important to have quality honey. The best you can do, is to find s local, small, supplier, that produces it with love.
If you have all the needed ingredients, let’s get started. It’s super easy! We press the juice from ½ of a lemon, add two teaspoons of turmeric, 2 spoons of honey and half of white yogurt. Mix everything together and leave like that for a few minutes.
Let’s not forget that turmeric makes things yellow, so ideally wear an old t-shirt or wrap yourselves in a towel. Put the mask on and leave it on for about half an hour. It’s quite an amusing look, we definitely had some fun.
The result is worth it though! We were a bit yellow (it’s going to be like that for a couple of hours), but our skin was immediately brighter. It’s almost unbelievable what this combination does. Don’t wait up, call your girlfriends and have some girl-time as we did! 🙂
We believe we’ve inspired you and you will try our beauty idea! You can leave us a comment with your homemade masks we will gladly give a go!
Have a beautiful Sunday!
