Turmeric and Honey Face Mask

Turmeric Honey Face Mask

Whenever I walk by the Lush store it takes all of my self control to leave without armfuls of bath bombs, lotion bars and face masks. I would love to pamper myself everyday, but when a single bath bomb costs $7 you have to restrain yourself. To tide myself over between Lush splurges I made my own fresh face mask. It only requires two ingredients and I bet you already have them in your pantry!

Turmeric Honey Face Mask

The best thing about a simple at-home face mask is you can whip it up any time your skin flares up. You don’t need to make a trip into town and spend extra money to wake up the next morning with glowing skin – you just need to mix equal parts honey and turmeric together and voilà! You have the perfect face mask to help reduce redness and leave your skin feeling moisturized.

The importance of reading food labels isn’t a new topic. It’s always a good idea to be informed and know what you are putting into your body. Overall, I feel like I have a handle on what I put in my shopping cart, but last week I had a wake up call. I took the lazy route and placed a carton of strawberry Greek yogurt in my cart without reading the label. I mean, it had all the healthy buzz words on it – so it must be good for you. Right?! Oh, how wrong I was. I was blown away by the amount of sugar packed into one serving!

Luckily, it only takes a bit more effort to transform plain Greek yogurt into a delicious berry bowl. I admit, it’s not as simple as tearing off a yogurt lid, but in the end it’s significantly more delicious. Plus, with a few glass containers you can divide out single servings to grab and take with you to work. Just proof that homemade can still be convenient!
