Hi guys welcome back to the blog! Now in the interest of transparency, I will tell you right now that these recipes are not mine. To be honest I just did a Google search and I believe these come from the Elle website, which I have linked.
I’ve always wanted to make my own face masks because I use so many of them and I’m trying to use cruelty free, waste free and natural ingredients as much as I can. With that in mind making my own face mask seems like the natural thing to do.
Without further ado let’s launch into the first mask that I made. According to the Elle website, this face mask is meant to even out skin tone and it only has three ingredients, making it super value for money!
- Turmeric Powder
- Natural Yogurt
Now, I won’t launch into the benefits as I’d just be copying the Elle website which seems pointless. However, before I began I could see why this would work for uneven skintone as the turmeric powder has a reddy orange tinge.
It isn’t the nicest smelling mask but you could probably overcome this with the addition of some essential oils. This dried down like a normal mask does and within a similar time frame. When you begin to remove this, you really do need a flannel as some of the red colour stays on your skin.
Initially I was afraid that I would look like an oompah looming 😂 so my advice to you is to use a good facial scrub afterwards just to ensure that it’s all off!
My skin felt noticeably smoother and softer after use and even today, the morning after, it still feels nice! I feel it has brightened my skin tone slightly too. I’ll making and testing more of these but if you’re eager to try some, check out the Elle website!
