Turmeric Beauty Mask

The hottest superfood of 2016, turmeric is exploding with health-enhancing possibilities. But this deep, orange spice is more than just a modern fad; Indian brides often used turmeric masks before their marriage ceremonies. Perhaps it’s because the masks are anti-aging, help to slow hair growth (buh-bye pesky moustache), improve skin elasticity, decrease acne, and help control oily skin. Regardless, we love the healthy glow that comes with the aftermath of this refreshing facial experience.

2 teaspoons sandalwood powder

2 teaspoons turmeric powder

½ cup chickpea flour

1 teaspoon almond oil 

Water, enough to make a smooth paste

Mix the powders, flour, and oil together. Add the water slowly, stopping when you have enough to make a paste. Apply and allow to sit for at least 20 minutes, or until the mask has dried and stiffened. Rinse with warm water to remove.
