All Natural Face Mask

I have been extolling the virtues of turmeric to almost anyone who will listen for close to two years now.

Seriously, every single person in my life who has any kind of digestive issue, aching joint, arthritis pain or plain old cold has heard from me "you should try taking turmeric for that!".


I have only ever ingested it, because I assumed that if you lathered it all over your skin you would surely be stained a bright yellow hue.

Not so my friends, not so.

I have used this simple face mask two days in a row now and am blown away. My skin is alright....not crazy problematic, but also not the kind of skin that people lose their shit over. Until winter hits and then it's just a train wreck of crazy. Without fail my face dries out so much on either side of my mouth that it cracks. I get these weird patches just below my cheekbones that can only be described as thick, scaly and rough. The few clogged pores I do have seem to multiply, as though increasing in number will somehow protect my nose from the bitter winter.

And all of that, as annoying as it is, wouldn't be such a big deal if we had a normal length of winter. But we don't. So I am putting up with my irrational skin for approximately six months of the year.

Anyway, long story short, in just two days of using this mask my dry patches are gone, my lizard cheeks have cleared up and my pores are smaller and seem to have sent their extra winter buddies packing.

Aaaaaaaand, this mask is rumoured to bring unwanted hair under control. Which, if that proves to be true, I will be slathering this stuff all over me. Also, if that proves to be true, keep it off your eyebrows!

Alright team, gather up the following:

  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon chickpea flour*
  • 1 teaspoon plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon raw/unpasteurized honey


  • mix all of your ingredients in a small bowl
  • massage into face and neck
  • wait 15 minutes
  • wash off in the shower or with a hot face cloth {fun fact: shower is the cleaner option}

*I didn't have chickpea flour on hand, but did have dried chickpeas, so I whizzed them in my nutribullet until they were a fine powder. If you don't have a high powered blender or dried chickpeas, I would recommend replacing the chickpeas with brown rice or rolled oats.

And that is it.

Super easy. Smells so good on your face. Works like a charm. And no weird ingredients or chemicals. And cheap!

So get to it, your skin will thank you.
