Affordable skincare has my name written all over it. I'm currently retracing my steps back to get my clear skin back and I have been using affordable and natural items to achieve this. I had been hearing about the wonders of turmeric and I decided to give it a shot.

Turmeric has been used in skincare in India for centuries and everybody knows how Indians especially their girls age really well so if they recommend turmeric, I'm going to use turmeric. This turmeric mask is easy to make. You only need 
  • Honey - few drops 
  • Turmeric- a teaspoon 
  • Milk - 3 tablespoons 
  • Flour - 2 tablespoons 
All you have to do is mix the ingredients together until it forms a paste. Apply onto your skin for about 10-15 minutes and then rinse off and follow with the rest of your skincare routine. 

Benefits of Turmeric 
  • It has antibacterial properties that help in the reduction of acne and it possesses anti-inflammatory properties that treat the inflammation caused by pimples 
  • It's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory components contribute to the natural glow of the skin. 
  • It is used in the treatment of psoriasis and other dermalogical conditions. 
  • It reduces wrinkles, stretch marks and tan. 
  • It helps with hyper-pigmentation. 
Benefits of honey 
  • It unclogs pores 
  • It has antibacterial properties so it helps in the prevention and treatment of acne. 
  • It is moisturizing and soothing and contributes to the natural glow 
  • Its antioxidant properties help slow down aging. 
Benefits of milk 
  • Slows down aging , gives youthful glowing skin. 
  • Helps fade dark spots and marks , reduces acne. 
  • It unclogs pores 
  • It reduces pigmentation , lightens tan and soothes sunburned skin.
With all these , you can see how beneficial this easy mask can be to your skin. After using this mask , my skin was glowing without even applying a moisturizer. I think everyone should definitely try this out. You'll be glad you did it. You can store the mask for later use like I have. This is definitely going to be a part of my skincare routine now.
