Benefits of the Ingredients
Turmeric has antiseptic and antibacterial properties, which makes it effective in fighting acne, blackheads, and clogged pores. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory benefits, it also cleanses and purifies the skin, making it look healthier and brighter.
Honey is excellent for purifying the skin, due to its antimicrobial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. Besides, it relieves and heals the skin, and not only eliminates acne but also reduces redness and irritation, as it is tissue regenerative and healing.
Yogurt o Kéfir
The probiotics in yogurt or kefir are excellent for your skin, as it acts as a natural exfoliator. It also controls the pH of the skin, reducing irritation and redness. Best of all, the acids it contains help decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Advantages of DIY Face Masks
The problem with regular facemasks in the market is that they contain toxic chemicals like artificial colours, chemical hormones, parabens, alcohol, and acids that irritate your skin and cause allergies.
Besides, in addition to the chemicals that contain highly carcinogenic additives, they are also expensive. By making your face mask you save a lot of money and take advantage of the nutrients contained in the ingredients.

1 Teaspoon honey

Everything You Need to Know About Face Masks
How to apply the mask is very easy, just spread it over with your fingers on the clean face, covering it all except the eyes, nose, and mouth. Let it act for 15 minutes and remove with water, slowly massaging your face.
Remember, the recipe is made for a single use because if you make more and store it, the properties of the ingredients will be lost.
To avoid staining, leave it on your skin only 10- 15 minutes. By following the instructions, it will not stain at all, but if it happens, just apply some makeup removal or a mild cleanser and you’ll be fine.
Some people may present allergic reactions to turmeric, so first, test a small amount on your inner-forearm skin for 5 minutes and see what happens.
We have learned a lot! I hope this DIY facemask has helped you because there is nothing better than doing something with your own hands. Best of all, they are ingredients that you can find in your kitchen without having to spend too much.
