Turmeric and Lemon DIY Face Mask 

  • 3 Tablespoons of rolled oats (ground in a food processor) 
  • 1 Tablespoon of Manuka Honey 
  • 1 tsp of Turmeric 
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon juice 

Instructions: 

Grind the oats in a food processor to make a powder and then add all the ingredients into a bowl. Mix until all of the ingredients are combined to make a paste. Make sure to apply over a sink, and wear a shirt that you're not worried about staining yellow. Leave the mask on for 15 - 20 minutes and then rinse off gently with warm water.
