4 Ingredient Brightening Lemon + Turmeric Face Mask

Winter is upon us and there's nothing like those cold winter months to threaten your healthy glowing skin. I've created a brightening lemon and turmeric mask that'll keep your skin glowing and hydrated all year round. This mask is great for all skin types but is especially beneficial for those with oily and acne-prone skin.

The main ingredient for the brightening lemon and turmeric mask is turmeric powder! This beautifully colorful spice isn't only delicious in traditional Indian drinks like golden milk but is an absolutely magical spice in a variety of skin-care products. Turmeric helps with age spots, reduces scarring and hyper-pigmentation, heals psoriasis and eczema, is anti-inflammatory, reduces redness, and brightens and tones skin.

    Then we have one of my all time favorite ingredients to use in all masks- manuka honey! It contains a plethora of medicinal and healing properties. I found mine at Trader Joe’s but it can also be found on Amazon. Manuka honey originates in New Zealand and results from bees foraging on the flowers of the Tea Tree Plant aka manuka plant. Manuka honey is best known for healing acne and scarring, fighting infections, cleaning pores while gently exfoliating, and moisturizing, softening and rejuvenating skin. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and extremely high in antioxidants. 

    Yogurt isn't only amazing at getting rid of the bad bacteria in your gut, it's perfect for the skin as well. Yogurt has high levels of zinc and lactic acid, which is ultra nourishing and hydrating!  The zinc present in yogurt does wonders at reducing sun spots and scars.

    Lastly, is fresh lemon juice! Lemons are high in vitamin C which is great at brightening and evening skin tone. It acts as an anti-bacterial that alleviates acne while exfoliating skin. It's also amazing at reducing acne scars.
