This turmeric face mask is good enough to eat. No really, it's edible and tastes really good. I would know as it is a tad runny and a few drops made it into my mouth. I had heard a lot about this face mask and how it makes your pores tighten and your skin glow. So obviously, I was dying to try it. I love easy, natural beauty remedies that can be done with just a couple of basic ingredients that you already have at home. Do you think it is a just coincidence that all this goodness from the earth just happens to be healing and beautifying to your body? Nah, me neither. 


I N G R E D I E N T S
1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder
1 tablespoon raw honey
1/2 teaspoon lemon

S T E P S
Mix the turmeric, honey and lemon in a bowl
Once completely mixed, use your fingers to apply the mask to your clean, dry face
The mask is runny so you will want an old towel wrapped around your neck. I say old towel because turmeric will stain!!
Let the mask sit for 20 minutes
Rinse with warm water
Wipe your face with coconut oil and rinse to get rid of all the remnants
