Make Your Own Tumeric Facial Scrub!

 

The world of beauty is constantly changing thanks to a lively social media landscape of Instagram beauty queens and innovative vloggers. While some of the trends can be just that, trends (I’m looking at you spoon contour), the Beauty of a Site team is excited that treatments featuring natural ingredients has become a beauty DIY mainstay.

So what’s the superstar ingredient of the moment? Tumeric. Yes, we know this isn’t exactly a revelation to people familiar with holistic medicine, as turmeric is a traditional medicinal herb in India (and is also featured in delicious foods). Tumeric is actually a strong antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties and, oh yeah, it is also antibacterial (good-bye acne). That’s a pretty kick butt ingredient for a facial scrub in our books! However, if you have sensitive skin we recommend you avoid turmeric as it can irritate some skin types.

So add some spice to your facial routine by trying out this DIY Tumeric Facial Scrub. It’s a great scrub to try on a lazy Sunday when all you want is some rest and relaxation. We got the instructions below, so get to it for some absolutely glowing skin. Seriously, this stuff leaves your skin ridiculously smooth.

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 1/2 cup tumeric
  • 1/4 tablespoons chickpea flour (for extra buffing action)
  • 3 tablespoons cold pressed coconut oil (for moisture)
  • 2 tablespoons cane sugar (for exfoliation)
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt (for extra exfoliation)
  • 1 tablespoon vitamin e oil (to condition and protect skin)
  • 10 drops lemon essential oil (for a little skin-brightening action)

 

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. 

Remove all makeup and wash your face. Scoop out 1 tbsp of scrub and mix well with 1/2 tsp of water. Massage into skin in small circles and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse well with lukewarm water and pat dry with a paper towel.

If used twice a week, scrub will last you about 2 months
