A turmeric Coconut oil face mask is the secret to how I keep my skin looking young, fresh and vibrant.
I actually used this a lot last year and once in a while I still use it to freshen up my face and add nutrients back to my skin. I felt compelled to share this turmeric, coconut oil secret because of an incident that happened today.
It all began when I went into the gas station grocery store to pick up some beers to make a ‘beer trap’ for some sneaky snails that are eating my seedlings in my vegetable garden.
I was in a hurry so rather than looking around for the beers, I asked the cashier if they sold any, her response… “Are you allowed to buy beer?!”
I stood there, for what felt like a minute or two, I had to ask her to repeat what she had said, because clearly my ears had deceived me. She continued, “I don’t mean to be rude” (too late)… “But, you look too young to be buying beer!!”
I was in so much shock because, I didn’t know if I should be upset, annoyed, glad that I don’t look my age, do I really have to pull out my ID, perhaps offended because, how dare she ?! Does that mean she’s not going to sell me any beer? Then I asked, “How old do I look??”…. She was turning red at this point, “I’m really sorry but you look 15 years old…”
I broke into a smile, yes, I felt damn good, I figured, maybe I am doing something right, can you imagine you’re trying to buy something and you’re WAY OLDER than someone else thinks?!?
Turmeric Coconut Oil Face Mask for acne
How I keep my skin looking young and fresh
1/2 Tablespoon of Turmeric Powder
1/8 tsp of Vitamin C Powder or 1 tsp of lemon juice (add a little at a time until desired consistency)
3 teaspoons of Coconut Oil or Coconut milk
- Mix together thoroughly.
- Spread turmeric mixture onto your face, leave for 30mins to an hour (I usually leave mine on for 4 to 6 hours).
- Rinse with warm water using a washcloth.
- Finish off with cold water to close pores. It might appear as though your skin has a yellow tinge after rinsing this will disappear over the next few days.
This will also work as a turmeric acne facial mask or if you have hyper-pigmentation (darkened areas of skin) or acne scars that you would like to get rid of. It will take quite a few applications of the mask to see some changes.
How fast you see changes depends on the severity of skin scars or darkened skin you are working with. Some may even consider this as a natural skin lightening treatment but without the cancer causing ingredients like hydroquinone. For this turmeric & coconut oil mask, I suggest application every 2 to 3 days for up to 3 months or until you see your desired results.
Caution – Turmeric stains very easily so be sure to wear clothing that you do not mind getting yellow stains.
What do you think? How would you have reacted if this situation occurred? Would you try this turmeric coconut oil face mask? How OLD do you think I really am?
