Turmeric and Honey Facial Peel

Problem: Blackheads, Acne Scars, Slight facial hair, Dry weathered skin

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons gelatin

1 tablespoon turmeric

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons buttermilk

1 teaspoon tea tree oil

Mix ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 15 seconds.

Apply quickly to skin. It shouldn’t be too hot. It will begin to harden quickly so get it done especially on those trouble areas.

Ugh an embarrassing pic alert. This is what it looks like on! I let it sit for 20 minutes.

Start from the bottom and peel upwards opposite of hair growth. This ensures you get a mini wax too.

Then I washed my face with an organic chocolate bar soap so I don’t smell like a spice rub. Lol. Lastly moisturize with a night cream.

No filter and no makeup. I also don’t want to hear any scoffing. I’m 37 and I have been actively taking care of my skin since I was 18.
