I have turned into an yellow alien! I just finished my buying season, which means i am done with traveling for a while. It also means that i am beyond exhausted, and it shows on my face. I have realized that my skin has become very dry and looks old. Since i was home chilling and relaxing the whole day, i had to do one thing to take away the guilt of doing nothing. I decided to make a homemade face mask, which would rehydrate and nourish my skin. The boost i came up with was made of yogurt, turmeric, oat and coconut oil. The yogurt and coconut oil are know to rehydrate the skin and moisturize the skin. I added turmeric due to its multi benefits such as nourishing, glowing, fighting acne, anti aging among many more. The oat helps to exfoliate and cleanse the skin. A combination of what i needed.
Here is the recipe. It's really easy and fast:
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of turmeric powder
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of yogurt
- water (until you have paste consistency)
Gently scrub your skin while you apply the mask and leave it on for 15 min. Don't panic if your skin is yellowish when you rinse it. After washing my face with warm water and soap, i used some coconut oil on a cotton pad and remove the excess of turmeric. It left my skin well mosturized and soooo soft. I really recommend it after a long flight. I am going to try to do this more often and take care of skin regularly and properly.
