For bright and glowing skin…literally. When you create a thick, blue box mac ‘n cheese consistency, pasty mask with 8x as much turmeric as you’re supposed to…your skin will turn yellow and you’ll definitely be glowing!

So, my brother told me about a concoction he’s been using lately to clear up his skin and blemishes. This past week my skin has gotten awful. Like pubescent awful. In desperate need for anything to help clear up my skin, I decided to try this. However, not receiving any type of specific recipe, I decided to tool around to create my own (and con London into doing it too).

Not realizing until our fingers had already been dyed yellow that our faces would soon be too. Luckily, with some soap and some make-up wipes, the yellow came off, and we were left with soft skin. And I swear it helped reduce the inflammation and clear up my forehead filled with dots…

Coconut Curry Skin Mask
INGREDIENTS:
1 Tbsp. turmeric**
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. water
2 Tbsp. coconut flout
1 Tsp. raw unfiltered honey
DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until well combined.  Add more liquid or powder substances as necessary to achieve the desired consistency.
  2. On clean, dry skin, use your fingers to coat your face and create a mask.  Leave on for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Using warm water, rinse off the mask.

**Our suggestion would be to reduce the amount of turmeric used, or be ready for yellow damage control!!

I’ve spent a good amount of time this summer complaining about the heat, while simultaneously soaking up sun and submerging myself in water at the beach. And while summer technically “ends” this upcoming weekend, San Diego doesn’t experience seasons, so as a result this activity will continue well into September/October…

However, due to all this sun exposure and water play, my tan has developed but I’ve noticed dry patches of eczema creep up that have created white splotchy sections on my arms. And while I appreciate the tan…sometimes I feel like a spotty banana!! I’ve started using a new product that I wanted to share because I feel like you wouldn’t normally pick up and decide to use for your whole body — SkinFix Hand Repair Cream. But strangely enough, it works. I’ve started to apply it on my arms after every shower, and even within the first few days I started to notice a difference.

My favorite part though is that it’s a natural formula (free of steroids, fragrance, and soy) that uses healing botanicals, rich natural butters and emollient oils to rebuild the skin barrier.  It’s a good investment and addition to the medicine cabinet because I know come fall/winter (when the seasons sort-of change) I’ll be using it for it’s actual “hand repair” use to deal with dry and cracked hands.

Tell me: do you have any natural products or regimens to deal with dry skin and/or eczema?
