Lighten Up!

I have a new recipe to share with you! This delicious looking mustardy concoction is a turmeric face polish. You know about turmeric, right? Anti-inflammatory, skin brightening, and notorious for staining your skin? That’s the stuff. I love it. I use toner after cleansing with this and it reduces the yellow tint left behind, but darker skin shouldn’t have this problem. This recipe is an exfoliator, cleanser, and moisturizer in one. It’s good stuff!

Lighten Up Face Polish

  • 2 Tbsp Baking Soda (please chose a natural baking soda, not the orange box)
  • 1 Tbsp Dr. Bronner’s Magic Baby Soap (or any gentle soap of your choice)
  • 1 Tbsp Camelina Oil (or any oil of your choice)
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 10 drops Lemon Essential Oil

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. I like to use a spatula to really blend the mix well. Any leftovers can be saved, but will turn dark on top. Just mix before your next use.

Place a scoop into wet hands and lather onto face. Use a gentle, circular motion and rinse. Admire your smooth and glowing skin. 😉
