Midas Cup Face Mask

midas cUp recipes play

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 

Ingredients

  • 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.

    Method

    • 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
