2 DIY Face Masks To Instantly Perk Up Your Skin

Nothing says healthy like a bright and glowing complexion, but it may seem that no matter how much highlighter you apply, your skin still looks dull.
Fortunately, we have found you a face mask that will instantly solve your dull skin woes.
Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory properties to soothe the skin, as well as reduce hyper pigmentation and even out the skin tone to name a few.
***Always test a patch of skin on your wrist before using turmeric, it can stain the skin in some cases. I find that cleansing with our facial serum or other oil (like olive or pumpkin) removes the slight yellow color, should this occur***
Honey has incredible antibacterial properties to reduce and prevent blemishes. It also adds soothing hydration and promotes a gorgeous glow.
Yogurt (try to use organic and make sure it doesn’t contain anything other than milk and cultures) contains lactic acid, which helps to naturally exfoliate and soften the skin. Studies are also being conducted on the benefit of probiotics for the skin.
Combined, these ingredients provide your skin with a real treat that’s suitable for all skin types.
