Turmeric Face Mask

 

Why turmeric?? Because turmeric has been used for centuries to treat acne, blackheads, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. It helps heal and prevent dry skin, slows the aging process, diminishes wrinkles, keeps skin supple and improveselasticity. It's used daily by East Indian women as a facial cleanser and exfoliant. So adding coconut oil only seems logical! You want it to be a touch grainy so add more turmeric than oil. Leave on 10-20 minutes & rinse & wipe with lukewarm water. Staining could occur if left on longer or used daily so make this a treat for your skin!

Hydrating Coconut Oil & Raw Sugar Scrub

 

Sugar inherently acts as a humectant, that means it attracts & absorbs moisture from the air & draws it into the surface, in this case, your skin. This is what gives it the ability to moisturize. Sugar also contains naturally occurring glycolic acid. This characteristic encourages cell regeneration and goes hand-in-hand with sugar's exfoliating properties. This scrub can be a lifesaver for an Eczema flair up. It's a simple recipe that's great for dabbling, adding an essential oil is a perfect addition. Use it as a body scrub too, or leave it on longer as a mask & let the sugar work its magic!  Mix the ingredients to a consistency of your liking and voila, ready to apply.
