Fair Friday- Honey Turmeric Facial Mask

This is another recipe I got in a daily e-mail from Dr. Axe. He is a doctor of natural medicine and a chiropractor.  He has one of the most visited health sites on the Internet.  Check out his site  for great recipes, articles and to purchase essential oils and supplements.  He also a number of great videos. I've learned so much from him.

He is a big believe in getting rid of the toxins in our lives. That means using more natural products for our beauty routines.  Today's recipe is from his site.  This mask was easy to put together. I had everything on hand.

Wash your face and plans first.  Leave on your face for 15 to 20 minutes. Be sure to rinse off well since the turmeric can stain.

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon organic raw honey
1/2 teaspoon yogurt
1 drop lemon essential oil or fresh lemon juice

In a small bowl mix together all of the ingredients. Be careful not to make it too thin or it will drip when applied to your face. Avoid the eye area. Let the mask stay on your face for 15 to 20 minutes. 

There was enough for one application when I made this recipe. If you have any leftovers, cover and leave in the refrigerator.  Apply two times per week for the best results.
