Turmeric has many uses, including using it in a facial mask for anti-inflammatory benefits. I have used turmeric in many recipes before and it is truly a beneficial herb for inside of the body and out. It can prevent psoriasis, acne and slows cell damage caused from the sun and aging. How about those dark, puffy circles we all get when we don’t get enough sleep or eat/drink too much sodium? That can be relieved from applying turmeric topically to the skin. Another extremely beneficial tonic is, apple cider vinegar. It helps to prevent fine lines and wrinkles and helps to reduce acne. If I’m ever having a mild breakout, I dab a bit of this vinegar on the spot before bed and it’s gone in the morning! You can only imagine the beneficial properties from the combination of these two ingredients. Used as a face mask, it’s a force to be reckoned with! Here is the recipe:
Put these ingredients in a bowl and mix together. You can use a small amount of water until the mixture is creamy.
Apply to face for about 15 minutes and wash off with warm water. This is definitely a must for acne prone skin as a weekly treatment!
