A simple, natural, facial to leave your skin glowing! March 14 2016

We’re rained out in New Orleans today. So with an extra day to relax and catch up with the family, it also gives us a few minutes to pamper ourselves. Here’s a very simple facemask, we use regularly that cleanses and makes your face glow

 

Ingredients:

         1-2 tablespoons of chickpea flour   

     

         ½ teaspoon of wild turmeric powder

 (Wild turmeric or Aromatic turmeric is generally used for cosmetic purposes. It has great anti bacterial properties. It is different from regular turmeric because it does not stain the skin yellow.)

If you don’t have it, you can use regular turmeric powder – just be careful not to stain your towel / clothes /white tiles

         Yogurt or cream to make a paste (you could use water instead)

Wash your face with warm water and pat dry. Gently apply the paste. We like to put it on a little thick (which means it will take longer to dry but it is worth it.) You will feel your skin tightening as it dries!  

 

Once the mask has completely dried – typically takes about 30 mins - use warm water and a wash cloth (for extra exfoliation) and gently scrub off the dried mask. For first timers, be gentle with this process.  Pat your face dry and it will be glowing. 30 minutes of pampering and you’ll look like you had a super long expensive facial!

 

Enjoy and relax!
