OMG, have y’all tried it yet??? I am in AWE, y’all!! Ok, let me tell you what happened. I was sitting around bored yesterday and was scrolling through about 4 different types of social media when I found a post about turmeric and how it makes an incredible face mask. I had seen it before, but hadn’t really paid it much mind. Because really, who sits around saying to themself, “Hey, let’s try a random skin diy treatment on the only face I’ve got”? Me, that’s who. Well at least yesterday I did. So, this is what I did.
Side note: I take turmeric anyway when I feel a stuffy nose, congestion, a weird achy feeling or stiff joints (you wouldn’t believe how much I type in a day, y’all). It works like a DREAM. Anyway, I have a bottle of turmeric curcumin supplement capsules sitting on my sink. So I said, why not? I’ve already got the stuff to do it. So I grabbed the scissors, snipped 3 open and went to work.
The one I tried wasn’t even the one I really needed to do. I should’ve done the one for dry skin. But I’m out of whatever it was you’re supposed to have. I think it was coconut milk? If I get my hands on some coconut milk it’s going in this hair! Whoo, it works wonders! But back to the main thing. I did the one for glowing skin instead. It was 1/4-1/2 tsp of turmeric (depending on the recipe you use) to 1 tsp of coconut oil. You mix it and then apply it to your face and leave it for 10-30 minutes (depending on who you ask). Then you wipe everything off with warm water & a cloth (just cut to the chase and use an orange cloth. It’ll be orange if you decide not to anyway). Or you can use a toner and cotton balls. Just be ready to put a little work in to get it all off. And be sure to not wear anything white or light. Turmeric stains (you can see it on my beloved Cape Hatteras tee shirt below-insert sad face). But I was able to clean everything up without any issue. I put olive oil on my face afterward.
I’m so so so so glad I tried it! Because when I did CHILD LET ME TELL YOU!!!! GIRL, MY STUFF IS SMOOTH! Not just smooth, but BABY BUTT, HIGH SCHOOL FRESH, CAN’T TELL ME NOTHING SMOOTH! Laugh if you wanna, but you’ll be mad the next time you see me! Yuuuuup! That dead skin is outta here like last year!
This just may be my new regimen. I have to wait to be sure my face doesn’t fall off, bump up or crack open. Or worst case, I end up looking like dude from The Fly. But so far, so good. No, so far, so SMOOTH!
Ok, my excited rant is over. Have you tried it? Did you like it? How did you do it? Are you gonna try it?
Alright, y’all! I’ll talk to you again soon!
