How to get your Summer Glow on with Turmeric

Hello December, summer is officially here and SHINGAI Turmeric Face Mask is the must have item of the season. Why? Well I’m glad you asked.

When we think of summer, we think happy, warm, glowing skin. Skin that shimmers on the beach. Skin that is smooth and flawless at weddings. Skin that feels soft and healthy, chommie, SHINGAI Turmeric Face Mask can do all of that for you!

Here’s how: turmeric gets its skin boosting benefits primarily from Curcumin, a bioactive component. This is the component that provide glow and lustre to your skin. Turmeric also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

What’s more, the Face Mask also has oil controlling properties and antimicrobial activity which makes it extremely helpful in reducing acne breakouts.

And it gets better, turmeric is one of the most effective natural ways to reduce the appearance of dark spots, acne scars and uneven skin tone.

Here’s how you can use SHINGAI Turmeric Face Mask to get your perfect summer glow:

Mix the face mask powder with a liquid of your choice. You can keep it simple and just add water or you can use one of our recipes to customise your face mask depending on your skins needs that particular day. Apply the mask gently onto your washed skin, leaving out the area around your eyes and lips. Once dried you can wash it off with warm water. 

Turmeric Face Mask Recepies

For dry / sensitive skin

HONEY - Honey is a natural humectant (fancy word for a substance used to reduce the loss of moisture) and this makes it a great skin moisturiser and softener.

The honey makes the mask very thick so add water to get it to your desired consistency.

1 Table Spoon SHINGAI Turmeric Face Mask

1 Table Spoon Honey 

ca. 1/2 Table Spoon Water

ALOE VERA  - All Shingai face masks have aloe vera powder in them, but you can boost the effects by mixing your mask with aloe vera gel. Aloe vera soothes the skin and fights inflammation.

For oily / acne prone skin

TOMATO - Tomatoes contain salicylic acid, a common acne remedy. These acids in tomatoes help absorb excess skin oils and unclog pores.

Please keep in mind that Turmeric might stain your basin if you don't rinse it off, and it will dye your face cloth or sponge, so use your hands to remove the mask.
