Get your glow on…

September 1, 2012

Nothing says summer time more than a radiant, fresh, sun-kissed glow. I’m not talking about a double dose of sun damage here, I’m talking about a look that says, I’m active, I play outside, and I take care of my skin.  Sunny turmeric and cool enzymatic yogurt make a natural skin brightening facial mask that will enhance your golden goddess, and really let her shine!

I use this rejuvenating facial mask once a week in the fall/ winter and twice a week in the spring /summer.  It can also be used just under the eye area to decrease the appearance of dark under eye circles

Turmeric has been used for centuries to brighten the skin and help increase the blood flow, it has antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties, which make it an ideal ingredient to use to fight acne, and psoriasis.  It is also thought to decreases hair growth on the body and face.

 Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of organic plain Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon of turmeric powder

 Directions:

Mix the two ingredients together in a small bowl until they form a bright golden paste.

Apply a thin layer to your face with your fingers or clean make up brush

Cover your eyes with two slices of cucumber, turn on some relaxing music, and  relax for 10 minutes

Rinse off with  warm water and enjoy your golden, fresh skin!

WARNING: I have accidentally left this mask on for over ten minutes and it caused some redness and mild irritation. I suggest washing off between 8-12 minutes depending on your skins sensitivity.
