Self Care Sunday DIY Facial Mask
Welcome to Self Care Sundays!
We should aim to honor ourselves and take care of ourselves everyday. But, on Self Care Sundays we go an extra mile. Tonight I am doing a facial mask, made with ingredients that I already have in my home. This DIY (do it yourself) is super easy and can be done by both genders of all ages. Tonight's ingredients include: Aloe Vera, Turmeric, and Honey --- the holy trinity of soothing irritated skin, reducing inflammation and healing the skin.
1/4 Aloe Vera Plant, Aloe Vera Gel or Aloe Vera Juice (Preferrably organic with minimum preservatives)
1 TBSP Honey
1 TSP Turmeric
Directions: Cut about 2 inches of Aloe Vera Leaf and scrape the flesh out and blend until it becomes a liquid and pour into a bowl (or pour substitute gel or juice into a bowl). Add Honey and Turmeric and mix all ingredients together. On freshly cleansed skin, apply to face using a facial brush or a spoon. You can also use your hands, just make sure that you wash your hands well to prevent staining from turmeric.
Allow mixture to sit on face until the skin becomes tight. Rinse well, then apply toner and moisturize.
