The ultimate anti-ageing face mask! Turmeric is such a powerful antioxidant, and Indian women have used it in their beauty regimens for gorgeous, glowing skin. It nourishes your skin while reducing acne and dark circles under the eyes. The lactic acid in the yoghurt helps to smooth and exfoliate your skin.
This face mask does not generally stain, but a patch test is recommended.
2 tablespoons unsweetened Greek yoghurt
1 teaspoon rice flour
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1-3 tablespoons water
Optional: a teaspoon of raw honey, a few drops of lavender or rose essential oil.
Combine the yoghurt, rice flour and turmeric in a small glass bowl (to prevent staining). Add enough water to make a smooth paste. Spread a thin layer evenly over your face, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. Be careful not to get the mask on your clothes, as the turmeric will stain.
