Here's a face mask that's easy on the budget. Most of these ingredients you can probably already find in your kitchen, and if not, they are very cheap. This is kind of an all in one mask - it brightens the skin, reduces oiliness, fights dryness, clears up the skin, fights the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even reduces age spots for more mature ladies.

Here's what you'll need!

  • 1 Tbsp - Yogurt
  • 1 tsp - Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp - Ground Oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp - Ground Chickpeas or Chickpea Flour


 After you've combined all those ingredients together, you should be left with a thick yellow paste with granules of chickpeas that will later exfoliate your skin.

Something like this:


 You can use your fingers to apply the mask all over your face, but I prefer to use a brush so it doesn't stain my nails. Turmeric is very pigmented and if you're not careful, it can stain your skin and clothes yellow, so make sure you don't use it in excessive amounts - one teaspoon is enough! Also, turmeric and chickpeas combined can inhibit hair growth, so DO NOT put the mask over your eyebrows! 


 After you've got your whole face coated with a thick layer of the mask, leave it on to work its magic for 10-15 minutes. If you have more of a fair skin tone, 10 minutes is enough. For those of you with a darker skin tone, you can easily go up to even 25 minutes. 

Rinse with lukewarm water and give your face a little exfoliating session, so massage the chickpea granules all over your skin to get rid of dead skin cells. After that, follow up with your favorite face cleanser and if you still feel like you have some yellow tint to your skin, use a micellar makeup remover or a toner and wipe your face with a cotton pad - this will get all the yellowness out and you will be left with glowing and soft skin. 


 For a more detailed description of what each of these ingredients does for the skin, make sure to watch the video break-down! I hope you give this a try, it will definitely improve your skin, no matter what your problems are.
