You must take some time to relax, unwind & focus your mind
for the daily grind.
Unless you have an unruly weekend ahead of you, cheers to chillax time-baby! My ‘Friday feels’ are parallel to coming home after a long day, taking my bra off, and letting it “all hang out”, courteous of lovely Lizzo.
However, today isn’t just any Friday where I would usually return home from work, pour myself a glass of wine, and fix myself behind my desk to read a novel or occasionally scroll through Facebook for hours on end. No honey, we have to turn it up a notch for Self-care Friday. Don’t crank the the tank too high though, baby steps.
What’s in store? Hopefully the title gave you a teeny-tiny hint. This evening, we’ll be doing a turmeric face mask. So where does the tunez come from, Nae?! I’m glad you asked; for the 20-or-so minutes that our mask will be…masking 🧐, your favorite music playlist will be booming in the background.
What you’ll need to prepare. Turmeric powder, honey, and Greek yogurt or milk. Mix 2 teaspoon of Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon of honey and 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder. There are dozens of ways to make a turmeric mask, but these are the ingredients I chose to use. You can be creative as you want.
Benefits of ingredients. Turmeric acts as an anti-inflammatory, purifying, and natural exfoliation agent. This could help with those dark eye circles, clearing dark acne scars and brightening your skin. Honey, of course, is known to hydrate. The Greek yogurt helps with moisture.
Get ready to glow.
✨Start with a clean face.
✨Spread mixture onto your face, avoiding eyes and eyebrows (turmeric inhibits hair growth)
✨Allow to dry for about 20 minutes. This is where that bomb playlist comes into the scene.
✨Remove mask with warm water and a washcloth and follow up with your favorite moisturizer.
C A U T I O N: I’m using a paintbrush to apply my mask and a washcloth that I don’t care about much because the turmeric has the ability to stain anything it touches!
Before you go
Because I’ve realized that Friday usually isn’t people’s favorite day to unwind (it’s actually quite the opposite; raise your hand if Friday is your pregame to the weekend✋🏽), we will be moving our self-care time to Sunday! That way, you can read what the PTB family has planned and incorporate it into your week ahead. Other than that, I wish you guys a wonderful weekend.
