Organic turmeric powder and coconut oil

Being on the road in remote areas often means that you have to fend for yourself in the beauty department. Unfortunately I wasn't blessed with an even skintone nor a pimple-less face. At least once per month during my moon cycle usually I can count of a break out. Luckily I have learned some ways to take care of my skin, hair and nails while traveling with ingredients that are both natural and easy to find. Here is one I'm currently using in India, the turmeric and coconut face mask. 

If there are two things that are always easy to find in India it's turmeric and coconut oil. I think countries with inexpensive coconut oil are usually at the top of my list. I basically use it all over my body, in my hair, on my feet and nails and for oil pulling and in my tea! This skin mask takes only a couple of minutes to make and works great for treating your skin after a long flight or train ride across a beautiful country. 

Take two tablespoons of organic turmeric powder and add enough melted coconut oil to mke a paste. Apply to the skin, I suggest face and neck but this is great for armpits and butt too. You can use a brush if you don't want to get orange fingers. Leave on for 15-20 mintues and rinse, any longer and you might develop a temporary orange glow. 

Always be careful when using turmeric, it can ruin clothes and towels. Store in a small container for up to a week. I like to use this once every few days when I'm traveling alot and I know that I've been sleeping on unsanitary pillows and beds.
