brightening turmeric face mask in white bowl

Brightening Turmeric Face Mask⁣⁣

This turmeric face mask is one of my favourites to whip together at home. All you need is four ingredients and 20 minutes to pop on Netflix while you let the mask do its thing.

  • Oats: moisturizing, restores skin barrier, reduces itching and inflammation⁣⁣
  • Manuka Honey: natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, helps repair tissue, speeds up acne healing, removes dead skin cells⁣⁣
  • Turmeric: medicinal properties, brightening, reduces inflammation/redness, and soothes breakouts⁣⁣
  • Lemon: brightening to the skin/scarring + antibacterial properties reduce acne, oiliness and blackheads.⁣⁣

Yes, turmeric is really orange. No, it won’t die your skin orange forever. If any yellowing lingers post mask, wash your face one to two times.⁣⁣
