- Xanthan gum
- Vegetable glycerin
- Distilled water
- Turmeric for skincare applications
- Food-grade gold leaf (edible like the one used in cakes)
- Preservative: germal plus or similar
- Scale to weigh quantities
- Glass beaker
- Glass jar or container to store the mask
- Glass mixing rod and wooden popsicle sticks
- Hand mixer
- PH test kit to test the acidity or alkalinity of the mask.
Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.
Steps: DIY Turmeric Mask
1- Put 4 grams (0.14 oz) of xanthan gum into a beaker.
2- Add 20 grams (0.70 oz) of vegetable glycerine.
3- Mix thoroughly till the xanthan gum is fully blended with the glycerine.
4- Add 164 grams (5.78 oz) of distilled water.
5- Mix well. As you mix the ingredients, you will notice them turning into a gel-like substance.
6- Add 3 grams (0.10 oz) of turmeric.
7- Mix thoroughly with a hand mixer to blend the turmeric fully with the other ingredients.
8- Now, we will add the gold leaf. Use the quantity shown in the image below.
9- Using the hand mixer, mix again till the gold leaf is disintegrated and mixed with the mask.
Note: You will notice that even after thorough mixing, the gold leaf pieces are somewhat visible in the mask. This is normal; when you apply the mask to your skin, the pieces will melt.
10- At this stage, we add the preservative. I am using germal plus. You can use an equivalent one. For the mask quantity we have prepared, add 1 gram (0.035 oz) of preservative.
11- Mix the preservative well into the mask mixture.
12- Put the mask mixture into a clean and disinfected glass container. For aesthetics, you can add some gold leaf on the surface.
13- As a final step, we will test the PH of the mask. It should be between 4.5 and 5.5. Here, in the mask I have prepared, I get 5 as per the color comparison.
How To Use: DIY Turmeric Mask
To use this DIY turmeric mask for your face and reap its incredible benefits, follow these simple steps:
- Cleanse your face: Start with a clean and dry face. Gently remove any makeup, dirt, or impurities using a mild cleanser suitable for your skin type. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.
- Apply the mask: Using clean fingers or a cosmetic brush, apply an even layer of the turmeric mask to your entire face, avoiding the delicate eye and lip areas. Gently massage the mask onto your skin using circular motions, ensuring thorough coverage.
- Relax and let it dry: Once applied, find a comfortable place to relax and allow the mask to dry for about 15-20 minutes. During this time, the mask will work its magic, nourishing and revitalizing your skin.
- Rinse off: After the recommended time, moisten a soft washcloth with warm water and gently wipe away the dried mask. Rinse your face with lukewarm water to ensure all traces of the mask are removed.
- Moisturize: To complete the process, apply a hydrating facial moisturizer suitable for your skin type. This will help seal in the benefits of the turmeric mask and keep your skin supple and nourished.
Note: It’s important to perform a patch test before using the turmeric mask on your entire face, especially if you have sensitive skin or known allergies. A patch test involves applying a small amount of the product on a small area of skin to check for any adverse reactions before using it on the face. If you experience any irritation or discomfort, discontinue use immediately.
Incorporate this DIY turmeric mask into your skincare routine once a week, and witness the transformation as your skin radiates with golden bliss.
