TUMERIC and BANANA ACNE MASK:
1 ripe banana
½ tsp of baking soda
½ tsp of turmeric powder
Mash the banana until smooth. Add in the baking soda and turmeric and mix together. If the mixture is too thick add a little bit of water. Apply directly onto your face, and/or problem
areas using a mask brush.
*Baking soda may make your skin tingle. Let the mask sit on your
face for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. If the mask leaves a yellow tint on your skin
wash your face with a mild cleanser and rinse again. Pat your face dry and apply a moisturizer.
*Use this mask 1-2 times a week max.
