Face mask: Turmeic and Honey

Bring turmeric form inside the body, to the outside. This face mask is very simple. Just two ingredients. Turmeric and honey.

Turmeric is known for centuries for its anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties. It  is a great remedy that will help get rid of your acne. Honey, also has wonderful healing properties. The type of honey that you use is important. Unpasteurized and local would be the best, as the honey would have come form your area. Unpasteurized just meet that it has not been heat, to the point where many of the good nutrients have been killed. Honey dose not spoil, or that is dose, the time frame that it takes is unknown Crystallized honey, which is honey natural state, has been found in the tombs of Pharaohs. This honey was still safe to use and was depicted on the walls in many uses. One being a face mask . 

So I use about a 1/4 cup of honey and about 2 tbsp of turmeric. To make this mask, have the honey at room temperature. It can be in a bowl or a small jar , which is what I used. Them mix in the turmeric with a spoon or a chopstick. Now, if the honey has crystallized do not worry. Put the jar of honey into a small pot and then  fill with water. Heat the water up till in is warm, do not let it boil. If it boils it will pasteurize the honey. Also, the microwave is out because it would do the same thing.

I leave this mask on for about 15-20 minutes. It leaves the skin very bright and soft. I pick any of the leftover mask with a toner, before moisturizing. I try to use this once a week.
