Anti Acne Face Mask

soothes acne flare ups, prevents breakouts and heals past scarring

This face mask recipe is great for irritated, acne-prone skin. The antibacterial properties of honey treat blemishes and prevent future breakouts, while moisturizing and soothing the skin. Matcha is an amazing antioxidant, and also has great anti-inflammatory properties that can ease an acne flare-up. Turmeric can heal scarring by reducing oxidation and inflammation. Here's the recipe:

  • 1 teaspoon local organic honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic matcha powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon lukewarm water

Mix the honey, turmeric, and matcha powder together in a small bowl. Once mixed, add the water and continue mixing until you have a spreadable mask. Apply directly to face in circular motion avoiding eyes. Allow to dry (about 10 mins) before rinsing. This recipe works wonders for acne on face, chest and back! Apply mask once a week for clear skin.

Note: Turmeric is bright yellow but it washes off skin easily. Rinse well to avoid potentially wiping turmeric on towels, although in my experience it comes out in the wash.
