Clear Skin = Happiness.

Now if we could all just get that glowing dewy skin and keep it that way! Well I have struggled with my skin for about 3 years. Mostly with hormonal acne.. horrible that time of the month under the skin, life ruining kind of acne. Another downside to my very skinny/unhealthy days was that I made my hormones go all out of whack. I mean super out of control and I am still dealing with the repercussions 3 years later. I have though, in this process learned quite a few tips and tricks along the way that has helped my skin big time.  Not only should you put amazing things in to your body but as it turns out all natural face mask ( hair masks and even body masks ) work wonders on the outside as well.

Turmeric Manuka Honey Mask: 

2 Tbl Manuka Honey

1 Tbl Ground Tumeric Spice

1 Tbl of hot water

– mix all together using a small spoon, but please be mindful that the turmeric will stain everything and anything a mustard yellow color! ( not your face, all Oompa Loompa like.. don’t worry).  Leave on for about 30 mins then wash off gently with a wash cloth & warm water

Turmeric is an AH-mazing super power spice. You should cook with it and even make teas and baking with it. I have some amazing recipes I will share later on. Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory healing properties, ideal for when those time of the month acne flare ups happen. That is when I do this mask personally for sure!

In Between that horrible time of the month I love to use this mask, mainly because the Chlorella  its amazing for appearance of scars, which is definitely an after effect of acne.

Spirulina & Chlorella Manuka Honey Mask

2 Tbl Manuka Honey

1 Tbl of Spirulina & Chlorella ( I use ” Aqua Greens” by Prairie Naturals)

1 Tbl of hot water

– Mix all together & leave on your face for about 20 mins and wash off with warm water and face cloth.

My good girlfriend, is a wonderful sales professional with the Canadian company, Prairie Naturals. She introduced me to their product the ” Aqua Greens”. I love their aqua greens for so many reasons. Internally this mix is amazing to cleanse and detoxify your body from heavy metals. Loaded with tons of amino acids and phytonutrients. Externally because studies have shown its ability to reduce oxidative stress. Stress coming from pollution, & eating habits…which we can all relate to. Vitamin A & C & Glutathione can make skin appear younger by protecting the skin cells and killing free radicals.

The benefits go on and on and on and I could go on and on and on!

Give this mask a try, perfect for a girls night or just to scare people away with your face!

  1. Where do you buy your tumeric? I only find the processed/dyed spices in grocery stores and they leave a yellow tinge on your skin because of it. I would love to know where to buy the natural spices!

    1. Hello Michelle!

      Thank you for the question! I love to buy my spices whole & fresh whenever I can. That being said Turmeric is a very hard one to find fresh! I buy mine here in winnipeg at the Fresh Carrot…. Other than that I am not sure where you could find it! One option for the powder is to use a little bit less so it doesn’t leave the skin as orange-y. Hope that helps!!
