@Sreypov's Blog #2 🧴 Super Easy Turmeric-Besan Facial Mask 🎭

in Natural Medicine β€’ 4 years ago (edited)


Β Β Β Β Β In support of the @NaturalMedicine and @Build-It communities, I (@JustinParke) have helped @Sreypov create her first non-intro post on the Steem blockchain. What better way to jump into Steem headfirst than via this lovely contest created by the amazing and creative @RiverFlows.

Β Β Β Β Β This post fits into both challenges: turmeric as one of the TWELVE seasonal plants, and also a DIY project that Sreypov has never done, although not extremely challenging. Keep in mind Sreypov's English and computer skills are limited, so I transcribe/translate and help her upload her posts.

πŸ•‰οΈ Indian Knowledge πŸ›•

Β Β Β Β Β In Cambodia we used to have some Indian neighbors who spoke a little bit of Khmer, and they purchased chapati flour from our restaurant/spice shop once a week. I love to watch Bollywood movies, and I think Indian women are very beautiful.

Β Β Β Β Β When I became friendly with one of our female Indian customers, I asked her for some beauty tips. She recommended a TURMERIC & BESAN FACIAL MASK at least once per week, and gave me her recipe.

Β Β Β Β Β That was almost two years ago, and I just now decided to give it a try. I was afraid turmeric would stain my skin, and that is why I have waited so long to give this facial mask a chance.

The Recipe πŸ₯„

Β Β Β Β Β The recipe is very easy as there are only 3 ingredients. My Indian friend said she uses yogurt, but knows I am vegan, and told me water is okay too.

Turmeric-Besan Facial Mask 🎭

2 tsp Besan
1 tsp Turmeric
small amount of water


#1 - Combine turmeric and besan in a small dish or bowl.

#2 - Add a small amount of water and begin mixing with a small spoon.

#3 - Slowly stir and add small amounts of water until you reach a pancake batter-like consistency.

#4 - Apply with your fingers and massage the paste into you skin a bit, making sure to cover your entire face.

#5 - Let the mask dry and wait 10-15 minutes.

#6 - Wash your face being careful not to stain your clothing with the power of turmeric.

#7 - Enjoy looking 21 years old again.

It is amazing what spices can do, and turmeric appears to be one of the most beneficial and versatile! Thank you for sharing about this natural super-ingredient!

yes,turmeric very nice @thekittygirl

Welcome to the @ecotrain, @sreypov !! Love the natural face care and you can substitute a coconut water or coconut cream kefir for the yoghurt too. Turmeric doesn't work great for white skin (leaves us looking jaundiced and decidedly yellow for a day or two!) but this is something Thai people do too, using rice flour.

Hope to enjoy lots more great content from you!

Way to go @Sreypov with your first post!!

welcome to steemit. I am an Indian and use this recipe. To mitigate the sharpness of the turmeric, first massage your face with coconut oil or any other oil that you use. Then mix a pinch of turmeric with one tablespoon of besan/gram flour and milk/water and spread on face. wash before it dries out. Why I wrote this is becaue turmeric could be allergic to many and the oil reduces the bad effect and the stains.

Oh,no problem for me,thanks you for sharing @sayee

Well I have so many sun wrinkles in my face that I think a ton of that stuff will not remove them hahaha.
A great post here my friends!

hahaha,Thanks you so much @papilloncharity.

Only a pleasure my friend!
