Turmeric Gold Face Mask
I love home-made skin and hair masks whereby I whip ingredients right from the cupboard and refrigerator together. They increase my creativity and nothing can beat the goodness in all natural products. They are cost friendly as well which is a plus. You don’t have to break the bank to get that flawless spa skin! Pamper your skin at home. My golden ingredients in making this mask are: whole milk, turmeric powder and extra virgin olive oil. The perfect mask for an even acne free moisturized skin.
Skin Benefits Of Turmeric Powder
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory, anti microbial and antioxidant properties which help to: bring out the skin’s natural glow, reduce scarring on the skin, fight eczema and psoriasis, brighten dark circles, prevent breakouts and even lessen active ones. Turmeric has got wound healing properties too.
Skin Benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra Virgin Olive oil has been used for centuries to relieve everyday skin ailments. It has anti-inflammatory properties which aid in wound healing. EVOO also has antibacterial and anti-aging properties. It’s packed with antioxidants and as such protects skin cells against environmental damage and inflammation. It moisturises the skin by reducing water loss. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is also rich in vitamins A,D,K and E which all aid in decreasing oxidative stress on the skin which when left unchecked, lead to accelerated skin aging.
Skin Benefits of Whole Milk
Whole Milk is rich in B-vitamins, alpha hydroxy acids, calcium and other potent antioxidants. It nourishes skin cells from deep within and it’s very moisturising to the skin. It’s a natural face cleanser which drives out gunk from clogged pores thus preventing blackheads. It’s high in lactic acid which lightens unwanted skin pigmentation and gently exfoliates the skin. It soothes sunburned and inflamed skin. It has got anti-aging properties too due to its Selenium and Magnesium content.
That’s why I call this face mask of these powerful trio, ‘Turmeric Gold’ as it’s packed with great and amazing skin benefits. It can be used safely upto three times a week to achieve flawless skin.
