The potent health benefits of turmeric are well known, as they are the subjects of over 6,000 peer-reviewed studies.
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, so it can get rid of inflammation that causes skin diseases. The antioxidants properties may help get rid of signs of aging.
Let’s take a look at the rest of the ingredients in this coconut and turmeric anti-aging mask.
Coconuts: They are packed with healthy fats called medium-chain fatty acids, which help keep skin moisturized and smooth to the touch. It is also a good source of vitamin E, which is known as a potent skin health vitamin.
Lavender essential oil: The main ingredient in this lavender nourishing cream is great for the skin. Lavender is a potent antibacterial and antifungal agent, which means that it can help clean the skin from harmful substances. “It contains powerful antioxidants that will prevent and counteract the irritating effects of pollutants on the skin,” explains Claude Saliou, Ph.D., director of research and development for Johnson & Johnson. “Plus, studies have shown that elevated stress results in rough skin, so lavender can improve skin by acting as a mentally calming agent.”
Mix 1/2 a cup of coconut oil, 2 Tbsp of coconut flour and 2 Tbsp of turmeric in a dark BPA-free glass container
Add 4 drops of essential lavender oil
Spread about 1 Tbsp of the mixture on the face, enough to cover cheeks, forehead and chin. Let it sit for 15 minutes.

Your face will be deeply hydrated and slightly oily when you remove the mask.
