Since my last post about my day by the beach, many of you have sent me messages asking for a particular mask or product that has our special Indian herb Haldi (turmeric) in it. As most of you know, Haldi has amazing health benefits and besides giving our Indian curries their beautiful golden colour and yummy taste, it is mainly used in Ayurvedic beauty products. You will often see a bride preparing for her wedding day with a ceremonial Haldi pack, but this ancient beauty ritual does not only work on ladies’ skin! It works magic on the gentlemen, too! So boys, why not surprise your lady love with a couple’s beauty day this weekend?

Today, I am going to reveal one of my most precious secrets with you guys you can try over the weekend. This is something that has been done for generations and generations in South Asian culture and it’s by far one of the most useful beauty rituals of all. It’s especially amazing if you’ve just gotten back from a vacation at the beach where you spent lots of time in the sun, just like me.

Here is a DIY face mask that is made out of haldi! Haldi has been known to make your skin glow and also reduces any acne and signs of ageing on your skin due to the antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties from the hundreds of antioxidants it has in it. Besan, the second key ingredient in this mask, exfoliates and helps even out your skin tone while removing impurities such as blackheads. Both of these ingredients will even help lighten your skin a little bit if that’s what you’re going for after being in the sun too long! What’s beautiful about this mask is that you can basically find all the ingredients in your kitchen. So, look no further, it’s time to turn your kitchen upside-down and follow these simple steps for brighter, lighter, and healthier skin.

First, you’re going to take about 2 tablespoons of besan, or gram flour, and 1 teaspoon of haldi. Try and use organic brands that are freely available at any market, my favourite is the Farmer’s Market on Sundays in D’Monte Park, Bandra West!

Second, take a binding agent of your choice – I usually use 2-3 tablespoons of yogurt because the healthy bacteria in it makes it a stronger force to fight impurities, but you can use 2-3 spoons of plain milk also. Additionally, if you like you can add a few drops of organic honey which helps with ageing and is also loaded with antioxidants, or even a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar that helps remove dead skin. Be careful with adding apple cider vinegar if you are sunburnt though! This is by no means necessary, but always a plus if you have these few extra ingredients handy.

Third, mix the ingredients all together to make a thick paste, just like the consistency of any other face pack and apply it on your face and neck, and any other parts of your body and hair if you have extra! If I have an extra uneven tan on my shoulders,
I sometimes apply it there also.

Keep it on for 10 minutes and let it dry completely before hopping in the shower and gently massaging it off your skin. After you get out of the shower, you will notice an immediate difference in your skin. If you have very fair skin, only keep the mask for 5 minutes and make sure the haldi has not extra colour in it, because you don’t want to turn yellow! You want that beautiful golden hue to add to your natural tan!

Trust me, this stuff is good! You won’t even need to put a moisturiser after this face pack because of it’s richness. Just relax and stay out of the sun for the rest of the day. Let me know how your mask turned out in the comments here! And if you’re wondering who took these sexy pictures of me in the shower – that is going to stay my secret forever!

    Your beauty is eternal by applying turmeric you are looking more gorgeous and marvelous and in fact there are more ayurvedic herbs for the beauty such milk, curd etc.
