Water evaporates from the skin, even with a small amount of dehydration, making your body function in a less optimal way. The instant you’re dehydrated, it takes a toll on your skin- your skin may become dry, dull, flaky and saggy. It’s important you constantly replenish your body with water as it keeps your skin plump, elastic, and smooth.

Combine:

  • One teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Two teaspoons rice flour (for oily skin) OR finely ground oats (for dry or older skin)
  • Three tablespoons plain yoghurt (or milk, cream, or sour cream)
  • Ensure you clean your face before applying the mixture and then let it dry. After 15-20 minutes, wash off.  Do this once a week, based on results you may increase the frequency to every day or every other day.

Make sure to wear an old tee shirt or blouse before application as turmeric does not wash off easy and may leave a permanent stain
