Its another great weekend here again and another time for some wonderful home made skincare recipe.
This time, we are coming up with this wonderful skin lightening home made mask which works to naturally and effectively lighten the skin. I have been trying out this recipe for a while and am glad to tell you that it does work, but it requires patience and committment *whew!!!*
The ingredients for this mask are:
* TURMERIC POWDER: (This powder/spice is an indian spice which has been used for ages to lighten the skin. It also has been used by brides a day before their wedding to get an instant glow and shine. There is a long list of skin care benefits associated with turmeric, including the treatment of acne blemishes, blackheads, dark spots and hyperpigmentation and other skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It helps heal and prevent dry skin, and to slow the skin aging process, and is used to diminish wrinkles, keep skin supple and improve skin’s elasticity. This sunny bright spice is also being used as an ingredient in sunscreens. It is used daily by East Indian women as a facial cleanser and exfoliant.)
*GRAM FLOUR/ BESAN: this flour is good for acne treatment, exfoliating, reduction of oil, reducing wrinkles, you name it…A good mix anytime.
*HONEY: I cannot even begin to relay the benefits of honey, but one thing you should know is that it is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, antiseptic, etc. The list goes on…
*LEMON JUICE: Lemon for a very long time has been known to combat acne, lighten the skin, it alsp helps to eliminate excess oil from the skin.
*MILK: I might not be a fan of drinking milk, but I know it works great to slough off dead skin cells and keep the skin soft and supple.
Mix 2 tablespoons of gram flour, to half a tablespoon of turmeric powder well enough to break moulds that form.
Cut the lemon into half and squeeze one half of it into the gram flour and turmeric paste.
Add one and a half tablespoons of honey and just a table spoon of milk.
Stir the mix well and apply to the skin. Let it sit for 20mins max and rinse off with warm water.
Apply a moisturizer after this.
You will love the result of consistent use. But be sure to use this twice a week. The best part of it is that you can keep the remaining part of your mix for the next face mask. Yipppeee!!!
