Hey everyone! Welcome to my first green beauty post since relaunching my website a month ago! I will be doing a lot of DIY's and trying out some awesome green/non-toxic beauty products in the future so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy this face mask I have been using for years and it has done wonders for my skin!

Turmeric is such an amazing spice. It can be used for a lot of different things. In addition to being a delicious spice and superfood,  Turmeric also provides amazing healing benefits, not just inside the body, but for your skin. Indian brides have been using turmeric body scrubs and face masks to purify and cleanse their bodies as well as provide a healthy glow by brightening their skin right before their weddings. We can all agree that Indian women have AMAZING skin! I honestly have never met an Indian woman with a pimple. So, they must be doing something right!

All you need are those three ingredients. Blend or ground up the oats to make oat flour. Mix all the ingredients together until it turns into a paste consistency and apply it on your face. Keep it on for 10-15min and wash off with your favorite cleanser and skincare products!
