You could use 1, just one simple DIY face mask recipe for every last minute plans?
That for me is, my baking soda and rose water face mask with Turmeric.
If you’ve visited my blog before, you would have seen this post about me baking my face in baking soda and coconut oil.
That’s also a powerful face wash with anti-aging benefits, but that’s more like a night before facewash thing for me.
You know what I love about this DIY face mask with turmeric and baking soda?
*Just the 3 main ingredients (turmeric, baking soda + rose water) alone can work wonders. It would leave my face feeling super soft and give me a nice instant glow.
*I can tweak it by adding some other stuff like Multani Mitti and rice flour to spice up the power of this face mask even more.
As mentioned above, the optional ingredients for this DIY turmeric face mask, are completely optional. You can add them in if/when you’re in the mood.
But the 3 main ingredients alone are perfect enough to give good results for your face.
MUST USE Ingredients for this face mask:
*1 Teaspoon of Kasturi Turmeric (Most recommended for skin care): Anti-ageing, lightens pigmentations and even helps get rid of facial hair in the long run.
*1 Teaspoon of pure baking soda: Has antibacterial/fungal properties to help remove blackheads. Exfoliates dead skin cells and gently lightens pigmentations.
*Pure Rose water: Just enough to make a paste with toothpaste consistency. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it will help soothe your skin.
It will also help fight free radicals that speed up aging.
Now the optional ingredients:
*½ teaspoon white rice flour: Is loaded with anti-ageing and pigment lightening properties.
What have you decided?
Are you going to use just 3 main ingredients, or would you like to include the optional ones like I did?
Whichever one it is, just add enough rose water to make a nice easy to put on paste.
Apply it on your face just like I did and wait for 5-10 minutes. If your skin is super dooper sensitive, you can start with 5 minutes.
I waited for 10 minutes.
When you start applying it, your Turmeric face mask will be yellow – orangish color like me below:
Half way through the application and when the time is up, you should look like Oompa Loompa’s relative.
This Turmeric baking soda face mask will turn from yellow to a pinkish red tone within 2 minutes of applying it.
It’s the baking soda/rose water combo that does this.
When the time is up, wet your face with warm water and gently start scrubbing it off. Be gentle with your skin and wash the turmeric mask off with warm water.
I was about to have a shower right before doing this face mask with turmeric, so the washing part was much easier.Drink a glass of water to give your skin a hydration boost.
NOTE: If your face has a tiny winy turmeric stain right after you wash it off, don’t panic. That’s perfectly normal. Just wash again after a while if you have to.
