I love this mask! It is so refreshing and makes my skin feel hydrated and clean. Now I know someone out there is thinking, "Wait a second here, my nails turn yellow from handling turmeric and it stains my counters. I'm going to look like a banana after this." No fear my dear, I promise you won't turn yellow. I don't know how it works that way, but for some reason this combination only works as a beautiful cleanser and detoxifier, not a dye.


Every ingredient in this recipe is suitable for all skin types. I don't personally suffer from any skin conditions, however, this mask is especially beneficial for those suffering from rosacea, eczema, acne, and dry or oily skin. It's not a magical cure by any means, but if you use this mask regularly twice a week, your skin quality will absolutely improve. I feel that even for me this mask is so soothing, and my skin is noticeably brighter and has a glow when I'm done. I really hope that you'll give this mask a try. Your skin will adore you!

I would be surprised if you haven't heard of the many benefits of turmeric. This natural wonder is not only delicious and beautiful to behold, it has amazing benefits for our bodies both inside and out. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which make it beneficial for treating rosacea and eczema, or anyone with redness and irritation. It also acts as a lightening agent and stimulates circulation which in turn reduces dark under-eye circles and puffiness. Because it is a natural antiseptic, it wards off acne by keeping bacteria at bay. Turmeric is essential for healthy, soft, and glowing skin and is wonderful for all skin types. Please don't buy any cheap brand of turmeric because a lot of times the cheaper ones are impure and you won't be able to reap the full benefits of this lovely spice. Personally, I get Simply Organic brand from the grocery store but I'm sure there are other organic brands you could find that would be cheaper. Trust me, you don't want to skimp out on this one!

Jojoba oil (ho-ho-ba) also has anti-inflammatory properties which again aids those suffering from eczema or rosacea. Though it might seem counter intuitive to use oil on your face, it actually tends to help control oily skin and also provides sufficient nourishment for those with dry skin. This oil is a definite win for every skin! I highly recommend buying this oil from either Mountain Rose Herbs or Kate Blanc. Both of these brands are excellent and I enjoy them for their purity and also because they are organic.

Rosewater not only smells great and makes me feel particularly feminine, it is also incredibly beneficial for the skin. It is really great for those who experience any redness or irritation, and its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help to soothe the skin. This is extremely helpful for those who suffer from eczema or rosacea. Because it is anti-bacterial, it helps to prevent and ward off acne and heal wounds and scars. It can even help to even out your skin tone and reduce and prevent wrinkles. The scent alone is useful as an anti-depressant and for relieving headaches. It can even be taken internally as an addition to tea or used in cooking which in turn aids digestion, improves skin, and soothes a sore throat.

The chickpea flour mainly acts as a binder and an exfoliant in this recipe but it also has some other great benefits. The zinc found in chickpea flour fights any infections that would later result in acne. It can also prevent acne by absorbing any excess oils on the skin. Contrariwise, when mixed with milk or oil it acts as a great moisturizer thus making this flour beneficial for all kinds of skin. I have always used Bob's Red Mill so this is what I recommend, however you are welcome to substitute any other Non-GMO/Organic flour.

Ingredients


2 tsp rosewater

*1 tsp jojoba oil

1 Tbsp chickpea flour (besan or gram flour)

1/2 tsp turmeric


Mix all the ingredients together and apply a thick layer to the face and neck. Let it set for 30 minutes and rinse off by gently rubbing in circular motions to exfoliate the skin. I find it is easiest to do this in the shower as it tends to make a crumbly yellow mess over the sink.


*If you have a rose/jojoba essential oil blend, you can use that in place of just the plain jojoba oil. This benefits of the mask will increase if you choose this option but it's not a necessary step.
