As the holidays approach, we all want to look our best! However, all the indulgence, desserts, alcohol and late nights, can wreak havoc on our skin leading to dryness, dark circles and even worse, breakouts!
At Mint Basil Market, we have just the trick to make sure you feel amazing throughout the month. Our face masks are so simple, all it takes are simple ingredients straight from the kitchen.
To avoid breakouts and reduce inflammation caused from excessive sugar, meat and dairy consumption over the holidays try this simple turmeric raw honey face mask.
Why tumeric and raw honey?
Turmeric contains an active ingredient called curcumin that is full of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that rejuvenates skin. It’s especially perfect for anyone that suffers from breakouts or rosacea.
Raw honey also contains antibacterial properties, moisturizes the skin and significantly lightens and reduces scarring. Let’s get started!
- 1 teaspoon Biopret organic turmeric
- 1 teaspoon Atelier Du Miel eucalyptus raw honey
- (optional) 1 teaspoon Biopret organic coconut oil
Mix ingredients until it becomes a paste.
Wash face and pat dry. Apply paste all over apply paste all over clean face, especially on any problem areas you might have such as chin or cheeks.
Leave for 10 minutes
Use an OLD washcloth to remove the mixture from your face. Wash your face twice to remove any yellow staining.
After washing face, apply toner or moisturizer
Warning: Turmeric does stain and will leave a slight yellow tint for a couple of hours. Apply this mask Saturday or Sunday morning after a late night out when you don’t need to be somewhere for a couple of hours.
