In India, turmeric is called the yellow gold and is one of the most valuable and most healing spices in the world. But not only in the kitchen. Ayurveda recommends turmeric to be used in cosmetics as well. People already now a lot about the benefits of the herbal powders for face beauty and in Ayurveda we call them UBTAN.
Turmeric is a common ingredient in Ubtan and I will tell you a very simple recipe for Turmeric face peeling which is more effective and healing than any expensive peeling from the store.
Exfoliation with turmeric will deeply clean your skin, remove all dead cells and other dirt from your skin, it will help the blood circulation and relives acne, your skin will glow and it increases the natural Ph value.
Why buy expensive exfoliants with artificial additives when you can make a much better one at home. This is why I love having workshops on the topic of Ayurved beauty because I want to inspire you to make your own products for skin care, at your home and very cheap.
And skin care should not only be practiced for beauty but also for keeping our organism healthy. Because whatever we put on our skin, in 20 min it is already in our blood stream.
Using cosmetics we can protect ourselves but also induce many misbalances in our body. And this is why we offer you this exclusive natural cosmetics.
Turmeric Face Peeling Mask
- ½ tbsp turmeric
- 2 tbsp flour (Vata – oatmeal, Oitta – chickpea flour, Kapha – barley flour)
The powder needs to be mixed with a little water before use in order to get a mixture which you will put on your face. Massage it for minute or two on your face and neck. And then wash your face. Instead of water you can use some herbal oils (almond, oat, hazelnut, coconut etc.).
Have in mind that the natural yellow color of the turmeric will give great tone to your face and that after this treatment you have to carefully wash your face in order not to have yellow blemishes. This is why this is recommended to be done before taking a shower.
People who have dry skin may add a bit of elderberry blossom. People with oily skin may add a bit of coriander powder or lavender blossom or a bit of fresh lemon juice. People who have normal skin may add a bit of rose powder.
I suggest you to try Ubtan and if it appeals to you make some more powder in advance and keep it in your bathroom and every morning take 2-3 tbsp and a bit of water and wash your face with this mixture.
