All of the things and more. I love this face mask so much. First of all I love that I make it from scratch. There is no added weird crap. I am very serious when it comes to skin care now. All my life I grew up with pretty great skin. I am very very lucky. I know this. I know that all of us have very different skin as well. So I know that this may not work for you like it does for me. So obviously try anything new with caution. I will say my skin did change about 5 years ago and I finally realized having great skin does take work. I use only natural ingredients on my face when it comes to skin products.I typically stick to oils and clean face products. I love CoCo Kind brand at Whole Foods. It's by far my favorite. Other than that I buy specific oils I need for my face the are beneficial to my particular problems. Right now I use chia seed oil, carrot seed oil & pomegranate seed oil. They are really amazing. Before that I was using avocado oil & coconut oil.
But back to turmeric. I just loveeeee turmeric. It's the ultimate superfood to me. Every time I do this mask- my skin feels 100 percent new afterwards. It's got a glow and is so clean. Oatmeal takes off all dead skin. So thats amazing. In order to make this you'll just need 3 ingredients. You might even have them in your kitchen right now!
Golden Glow Mask Recipe by The Daily Kale
1/2 cup oatmeal
3 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. turmeric
*optional to add honey/ maple syrup, but not necessary.
In a food processor combine all ingredients. Pulse for a few seconds until combined.
Now add in water little by little. I end up using about 1/4 cup water until I reach the desired consistency I'm looking for. I leave it blending for about 1-2 minutes. Similar to if you were making peanut butter from scratch. The longer you let it blend the more combined, smooth and creamy and dreamy the texture will be.
Add in more water to continue thinning it out until it reaches the texture you like. I like it to be a creamy paste so that I can more evenly distribute it on my face. But that part is up to you.
Put on your face for about 15- 20 minutes. Before it is completely dry. While I am taking mine off, I like to rub the mask in circles as I'm taking it off to really get the old skin off. I wash it completely off with warm water & a wash cloth. If you have yellow still on your face you can use toner to get that off. I never have to. But I do know that witch hazel takes anything left on my skin off really well.
If you end up trying this face mask let me know how it goes! If you have any questions- leave them in the comments below :)
