It’s DIY day…We will be talking skin today!! 🙂 Taking care of your skin is so important, especially in the society today, where you are expected to look good at all times! People dealing with skin issues like pimples,dark circles, dark patches, discoloration and pigmentation are often seen hiding themselves behind layers of make-up just to look flawless!
Well, it’s not that hard to get flawless looking skin, you just need to give your skin the time to heal itself and reveal the real beauty beneath! Anyhow, I am here to talk you through one magical mask that will leave your skin looking like you just had an awesome facial session! Trust me! 🙂
So let’s get started
What You need?
1. 2 tsp Turmeric powder
2. 2 tsp Licorice powder
3. 2 tsp Coffee Powder
4. 1 tbsp milk
5. 1 tbsp Honey
6. Half Lemon (optional)
How to make and use?
In a bowl mix all the above listed ingredients until it forms a nice paste, which is neither too thick nor too runny! Slather it on your face and put it on your under eye area as well (yes, it is safe to use near your eyes).
How long should it be on your face?
Let it sit for good 30 minutes. I suggest 15 mins if you have sensitive skin!! Wash it off with lukewarm water and follow up by splashing some cold water!! Pat dry and moisturize!!
How many times a week can you do this?
This mask shall be used thrice a week for maximum results!!
Can I store this mask if I have some leftovers?
No, I suggest making a fresh mask each time!!
Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. Is traditionally used on Indian brides before their big day to get that golden glow! It works great on pimples, pigmentation and dark circles.
Liquorice also called as Mulethi is an excellent ayurvedic herb that is known to give you an even skin tone, lighten complexion and get rid of any kind of pigmentation.
Coffee is great to give your skin an instant pick-me-up when you are having a dull skin day!! Caffeine helps in giving that puffy face an instant lift and your under eyes will look a lot brighter!!
Honey is a great moisturizer, helps in adding a youthful glow to the face with regular usage! It helps calm down any pimples or redness on the face!
The lactic acid in milk helps to reduce wrinkles and boost collagen and also smoothens skin overall – improving your skin texture and hydrating it too
Lemon is a powerhouse for your skin packed wiht nutrients and helps in reducing dark spots, facial discoloration and removing dead skin cells and also cleaning the pores and helping the skin restore its natural oil balance
Remember: You won’t see results instantly!! You have to be consistent with your skin care to reap maximum benefits! 🙂
