DIY Tumeric Brightening mask

Tumeric, the golden spice of life, is a natural ingredient that is used for more than just cooking. It can be used as an all-natural skincare ingredient that can be applied topically to brighten your face for glowing skin. Tumeric has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-aging properties, and it can also reduce the visibility of acne scars. This makes it a great ingredient to use as a face mask.

My mom and grandma have been using tumeric for as long as I can remember, not just for cooking, but as a face mask. Many people have their own versions of this diy mask, but this is the way that I have always learned to use it.

 

Products Used:
Tumeric
Milk
Fresh Lemon Juice
Chickpea Flower
Honey (optional)

Directions:

  • mix all the ingredients together until you get a paste. The mixture should have a texture similar to pancake batter.
  • with a brush apply all over face and let sit till it hardens. I usally leave it for about thirty minutes.
  • rinse off with a warm, wet wash cloth
  • moisturize face

– Make sure you are wearing an old shirt that you don’t really care about because tumeric can stain your clothing.

Help Nepal Raffle Giveaway

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Hey Guys! I wanted to do  something a little different here. In light of the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal a week and a half ago, I feel that during times of distress it is good to be generous towards others. So I wanted to raffle off this painting and donate 50% of the ticket sales to the American Red Cross to Save the Children to help the victims of the Nepal Earthquake. I will hold the raffle open till next week May 13, 2015!

T0 purchase a ticket go to my Etsy Page the link is located below.

Help Nepal Raffle

Once the raffle closes I will randomly select one of you to win my Tropical Paradise painting!!

When you have the opportunity to give, the world gives back. It’s the law of the universe. Can you imagine being in such a traumatic disaster and not even having any warm clothes, or even a family member to tell you everything will be alright? Its our duty to at least do a small part to make sure they have medical aide and food in their bellies, especially since we can’t be there to help out or give them a hug.

 Thank You for your support!

Rose Song

Hey guys!! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, so I wanted to share with you all something that I have been working on and off for the past few months. I used to play the piano (not very well) so I have always had an appreciation for classical music. I found an image of a broken piano and some beautiful roses, and those photographs inspired me to do a pencil sketch of a combination of the two.

I think so far this is one of my favorite sketches! I hope you guys like it too.

xoxo
