Almost 70-80 percent of all teenagers have acne problems, but not just teenagers are dealing with this problem. Younger children are starting to get acne as well. It’s unknown if it’s stress or hormones, but a lot of people experience acne problems even later in life.
The fear of getting an acne outbreak before an important date or a job interview can overcome even the strongest among us. And then there are the dark circles under our eyes we so desperately try to cover up even though we know they come naturally with age.
Spending thousands of dollars on expensive creams and make up is not the only solution for your skin problems; you could try some natural alternatives as well and get amazing results. The following mask will leave your skin glowing and silky smooth and you’ll just need a few ingredients.
Add two spoons of garbanzo bean flour, also known as the Gram flour in a large bowl. Add in half a teaspoon of turmeric and one teaspoon of almond oil. Mix it all well and add a bit of milk. Mix it again and keep adding milk until you get a thick paste. Your mask is ready.
Apply the turmeric mask on your face in a thin layer. Don’t apply it too thick or too thin and make sure it doesn’t get into your eyes or nose because it burns. Apply some on your neck as well and leave it on for 20 minutes. Wash it after 20 minutes with warm water.
Indian brides use this mask before they get married to make their skin look fresh and glowing.
Use the mask twice a week and eliminate wrinkles and dark circles under your eyes in no time. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric will also prevent acne outbreak.
For additional benefits you can also drink golden turmeric milk. Add a bit of turmeric in a glass of warm milk and drink it every day. It may not taste so good but it’s extremely healthy. If you’re pregnant consult with your doctor for any possible contraindications.
