"24kt Magic" is what I call an awesome golden spice known as "Turmeric"! The main star ingredient of turmeric is "Curcumin"; which is an antioxidant & natural anti-inflammatory.
Curcumin is the main health benefit that turmeric has to offer!
Turmeric Powder (Curcumin)
Turmeric is the GOLDEN key player in my nightly facial routine, hence why I call it "24kt Magic". Turmeric is beneficial regardless of whether you consume it or use it as a key ingredient in your skin care routine.
Anyways...I don't want to TURMERIC talk you to death! Let's dive into my "24kt Magic" nightly facial routine :-)
"24KT MAGIC" Nightly Facial Routine Details
1. In order to make a turmeric face mask mix up the following:
1/4 Cup of Plain Greek Yogurt (any brand will do)
1 Tsp of Organic Turmeric Powder
1 Slice of Lemon (squeeze your lemon slice over the turmeric & yogurt, than disregard)
Mix up the ingredients well, then apply the mixture to your face (avoiding eyes)
2. Allow your turmeric face mask to dry & leave it on for 35-40mins
Using a warm hand towel gentle rub the face mask off. (FYI, turmeric will stain your hand towel)
NOTE: Your turmeric face mask will have hardened at this point so be careful not to be too rough when removing the mask.
3. Once the turmeric face mask is removed, for any remaining residue I clean off w/ my very own handmade facial bar called "MELANIN VIBEZ"!
Melanin Vibez is an 100% Organic Coco Mango Butter facial bar that is infused w/ Organic Turmeric Powder, Activated Charcoal, Tea Tree & Citrus Oils. This detoxing bar pairs nicely w/ the turmeric face mask & my "24kt Magic" nightly facial routine! :-)
Lather the "Melanin Vibez" bar in your hand & apply the lather to your face in circular motions for about 30 seconds.
Rinse the lather off your face & pat dry w/ a clean paper towel.
QUICK TIP: I would recommend cleansing your face w/ your hands or a white hand towel. Dark colored hand towels are infused w/ dyes which is not good to apply to your skin.
4. Next apply "Neutrogena Soothing Clear Turmeric Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer" to your face. This moisturizer works wonders, it will hydrate & soothe your skin! In addition, it's non-staining & made w/o parabens, mineral oil & sulfates!
5. Once you have applied "Neutrogena's Turmeric Moisturizer"; lastly spray on "Neutrogena Soothing Clear Turmeric Mist". This mist is the last touch to my "24kt Magic" nightly facial routine! In addition, it does not leave a sticky or tacky residue; it's non-staining & made w/o parabens, mineral oil, silicones & sulfates! I AM A FAN OF BOTH PRODUCTS!
NOTE: When spraying on the Turmeric Mist hold about 6"-10" away from your face & try to avoid contact w/ eyes.
