In the last few years, my obsession with the sun has gotten the best of my skin. I have started to develop a bit of rosacea on my cheeks. After a few unsuccessful visits to a dermatologist, I found my own solve in my cupboard.
I make a very simple mask of pure, organic turmeric and hexane-free castor oil. I have found oil from The Palma Christi company to work best.
The recipe is simple – one part turmeric; two parts oil – added to an airtight glass jar. Be sure to store it in a dark space. (The castor oil is only a binding agent. You can substitute your favorite oil.)
Caution – the turmeric will tint your skin with a yellow-orange color. It makes a mess of your towels and bedding but is worth it! My experience is that the tint is temporary and washes off.
The benefits of the turmeric are anti-inflammatory and puts the skin at ease.
