Glowing skin series: brightening turmeric + lemon diy face mask
Welcome to my new Glowing Skin Series!
With colder months on the way, I thought it would be fun to do a little beauty series to keep our skin glowing and hydrated through the upcoming winter. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing my favorite DIY face masks, scrubs, winter skin tips and more! See my Natural Vegan Skincare Routine for a daily look into what I use.
Would be nice to keep that summer glow year round, right?! This mask is not only brightening but it’s great for acne-prone skin (or any skin!) and bringing you a glowy complexion.
The vegan police may be after me for this one though… while I do not consume honey, I’ve always loved the medicinal properties for the skin. Mainly pointing towards manuka honey, the healing aspects are endless. I bought this manuka honey from Trader Joe’s over the summer without thinking… then started to feel major guilt that I ignorantly bought it in the first place. Vegans aren’t supposed to eat/use honey and there is great debate about this in the vegan community… refer back to this post outlining my thoughts on plant based vs. vegan. If you’re concerned, simply swap it out for agave nectar to achieve the same sticky consistency.
Normally, I wouldn’t purchase any products with honey so… not sure what I was thinking.. but I have a small bottle of it and I’m not going to beat myself up over it. I’m going to use it for beauty related purposes like this Brightening Turmeric DIY Face Mask 🙂
