Makeup is seen as a deceitful illusion! to most people who may not wear it, Its viewed as a mask and mechanism to cover up insecurities about your skin or facial features.
If I want to add more bone structure to my nose or jaw line, I can use a darker concealer to make it appear that way; without surgery.
Although I can agree with all of the negativity that comes with wearing makeup, some people just like to paint there face. It brings a sense of creativity and fierceness that one may not necessarily feel on a regular basis.
However, wearing makeup everyday doesn't take care of the challenges we may have with our skin: the dark spots, pimples and acne scars. I've used noxema, aveeno oatmeal soap,and doctor perscribed medication and none seemed to clear my skin. I believed it had alot to do with my eating and drinking habits.
Therefore, I became pesceterian, which was one of the best decisions Ive ever made ( but I eat alot of vegeterian meals and occasionally slip up on a piece of chicken...lol). I'm working on drinking more water, but the Kool-aid is too good and too SWEET!
I decided to try some home remedies for my skin and the tumeric powder and water has shown someof the best results.
Stains face and clothing ( Scrub face with warm water after using it helps with this)
Stings a little
Redness for about an hour ( My skin is sensitive, so this may or may not happen)
Directions: (Recommended usage: once or twice a week)
Use gloves and wear clothes that you dont mind getting messy
Take a teaspoon of turmeric and 1 cup water and mix together
Be sure that the mixture is smoove and not too thick or too watery
Use your hand or a old makeup brush to apply only on the problematic areas
Use for 20- 30 minutes
Rinse with warm water
Use moistrizer or coconut oil to prevent dryness
Let me know how it works!
