Tumeric Face Mask

phn-1333

Today I decided to try a “Tumeric Face Mask for Glowing Skin” that Dr Axe promoted in a newsletter. Here is my experience…

My skin is very sensitive so I like trying remedies that are all natural or that I can make at home.  The ingredients in this face mask are:

  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powderphn-1334
  • ½ teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of organic, raw, local honey
  • ½ teaspoon milk or yogurt
  • [optional] 1 drop lemon essential oil or fresh lemon juice for additional skin brightening

What I like about this face mask is that it tastes good. So when it gets in my mouth, its not the end of the world.

I also have super sensitive skin and I am hoping this concoction will not irritate my skin. Otherwise, I will have to go into repair mode to reduce the reactivity.

So, I left it on for 15 minutes. It was easy to rinse off.  So is my skin brighter or “glowing”?

How the heck am I supposed to tell when all I can see is orange?

I got orange stain around my mouth and forehead, mostly.  My face no longer matches my neck.  It’s like a self-tanner gone bad.

 

So what did I learn? 

  1. Tumeric stains, even on a well-exfoliated face.
  2. Never do a test on your face when you have a meeting
  3. Never do a test on your face when you are planning on recording video.
  4. Do a test run on an inconspicuous area first.
  5. I have sensitive skin to even kitchen ingredients.

 

I hope this wears off fast. I have a workshop on Saturday…oh, the explaining I will have to do.

My advice: don’t do this face mask UNLESS you want an orange tan. Then go for it!

Have a great weekend!
