Turmeric

Turmeric has been used as a beauty treatment for hundreds of years. Traditionally, Indian brides would apply turmeric to their skin to look radiant and glowing at their wedding. That’s not all – turmeric has antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Honey

Honey has been used for hundreds of years to treat a variety of conditions. It is a popular natural face treatment as it gently cleanses and moisturises the skin, while reducing swelling and inflammation – and it has antibacterial properties. Read more about the amazing health benefits of honey and see our other fantastic DIY honey beauty tips and remedies. For the best results, use Manuka Honey as it has much stronger antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties than regular honey.

Where to find manuka honey (go for a UMF rating of 10+ or higher):

 

Flour

Flour is used to bind the mixture together and prevents the honey from running down your neck. It also makes the mixture become a light scrub to gently exfoliate your skin when you wash the mask off. Any flour will do - Spelt Flour is good if you have it.

  • Yield: Enough for one person (1 Servings)
  • Prep: 5 mins

Treat your face to this super easy DIY mask - you'll probably have all the ingredients in your pantry already! It will leave your skin soft and glowing. The ingredients in this mask are especially effective for acne and dry skin - a great way to clean, sooth and moisturise all skin types. Use about once a week.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons flour spelt flour is good if you have it
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon honey organic or manuka honey is best

Instructions

  1. Making the mask: Mix the flour and turmeric in a small bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the honey. Bring the mixture together until it becomes a smooth orange paste.
  2. Using the mask: Turmeric can stain clothes, so wear an old shirt. Don't worry, the turmeric will not stain your skin! This mask is pretty sticky, so make sure your hair doesn't get caught up in it - tie it up or pin it back. Wash your face using your usual cleanser. Pat dry. Gently apply the mask with your fingertips - just dab around your face (and neck if you want) until it's all covered. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes and relax. Slowly wash the mask off with warm water until it's all gone - then splash your face with some cool water and pat dry. Your skin will feel lovely, glowing and smooth! If you have sensitive skin, do a small patch test first.

    1. Love turmeric and love honey. I just never thought of mixing the two to create a face mask. will have to try it this weekend

      I tried this with just honey and turmeric…just small patches and not full face mask, so it wasn’t runny at all. I’m hoping it’ll help with some small blemishes and uneven skin tone in certain areas. How often would you think this mask should be used?

      • I use a mask once a week, or sometimes every 2 weeks. I think it’s good to space them out like this, so as not to stress the skin out. It’s also about getting to know what feels right for you. Best of luck! I would love to hear from you after a few months of doing this to see how it all went.
