Why you should try it.
- Turmeric has been shown to reverse the effects of hyper-pigmentation.
- It's antibacterial and anti-inflammatory - that goes for topical use too.
- Has been used traditionally to soothe skin irritations, treat burns, and relieve sunburn.
- Studies have shown that curcumin can speed up wound healing, and relieve pain.
- Since it's anti-inflammatory, it's used topically for acne, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis.
- Antioxidants, like those found in midas cUp, have been shown to be anti-ageing, and rejuvenating, softening the appearance of fine lines.
How you should make it.
There's not really a 'wrong' way to make a turmeric face mask.
But there is a 'better' way.
We don't use oil for one reason. Oil leeches the colour from the turmeric and leave a slight yellow tinge to your skin, which you need to rub furiously to remove. Causing skin irritation and staining your towels. Notice how you look a little tan after a coffee scrub? Because the oil has absorbed the colour of the coffee, and now your skin has too.
Midas Cup Turmeric Face Mask
- 2 tsp of midas cUp
- 1 tsp of raw organic local honey*
- 1 tsp of natural yogurt (or milk)
*using local honey assists with seasonal disorders like hay fever.
- Put everything into a small bowl and mix well. You want it to be a thick consistency, like a paste.
- Tie your hair back and put on some old clothes, or a towel. A good idea is to do this just before you shower.
- The trick is to start small, working from your forehead down, so you can gage the mixture. You don't want it dripping off your face as it may stain.
- Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
- Rinse well using a warm face towel.
TIP: the cinnamon will cause a slightly tingling sensation - this is great for blackhead removal after the mask
