I am a huge fan of DIY face masks.
Not only because shop bought face masks are more expensive, but also because when you make your own skincare, you get to make sure it contains only natural and clean ingredients too.
And guess what – even big stars, with beauty budgets far extending ours, make their own skincare.
Actress Priyanka Chopra recently chatted with Harper’s Bazaar about the traditional Indian skincare tricks she learned from her mum growing up, for instance how she swears by coconut oil for cleansing her skin.
As well as the all-natural cleanser preferance, Chopra also shared the recipe for a DIY face mask, made with turmeric and basic food ingredients, that she (and her mum) rely on for gorgeous, glowy skin.
Fancy giving this traditional Indian DIY mask a try this weekend? Now you can.
- Whole Wheat Flour
- Lime Juice
- Full-Cream Yogurt
- Rose Water
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, adding more rose water if necessary to achieve the desired consistency. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes, then gently rub it off the skin to exfoliate and break up the mask before washing it away.
