This easy, totally natural face mask recipe from Sister & Co is amazing for treating breakouts and irritated skin. It’s also very effective in getting rid of under-eye shadows. The vitamin E, lauric acid and anti-oxidant properties in the coconut oil combine with anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial turmeric and vitamin B in the honey to heal, replenish, brighten and smooth skin all at the same time. You’ll love it!
All you need:
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp raw manuka honey
3 tbsp extra-virgin coconut oil (gently melted over the stove)
Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl to make a paste. Apply to your face, focusing on any problem areas, leave for 15-20 minutes then rinse with a warm facecloth. Use 2-3 times a week for best results.
Be warned the mask is bright yellow! It rinses off easily.
