Easy DIY Turmeric Face Mask

I've got a super easy DIY face mask for you guys today! DIY turmeric masks have been a major trend on social media and beauty sites lately, and with  good reason - they're so good for your skin! There are several reasons why Turmeric Face Masks can help you get your glow on. The curcumin in this brightly-colored spice has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, thus the turmeric benefits for skin can include detoxifying, anti-aging, calming, and healing. In other words; it can help clear congestion, helps to heal blemishes and reduce scars, can boost collagen, and prevents damage from free radicals.

I've mixed turmeric with coconut oil for my DIY mask, but you can use other ingredients for different skin needs. For example, a dairy yogurt containing lactic acid can boost the anti-aging and skin brightening properties, while a honey turmeric mask would be best for fighting bacteria and blemishes. The coconut oil is a great ingredient for extra moisturizing.

Easy Salted Caramel Sauce


One of my favorite flavors for fall is salted caramel. I love to drizzle it over pancakes, pumpkin cake, brownies; the possibilities are truly endless. This homemade caramel sauce couldn't be easier. You don't need a candy thermometer, and you don't have to pour cream into boiling sugar to create a sizzling, splattering hot mess. You simply mix everything then heat it up. Just like most of my treats, I made this dairy-free for my daughters, though you can easily swap in heavy cream if you wish. Note: It doesn't harden enough for candy making or caramel apples. This is strictly a recipe for liquid caramel sauce.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy milk or coconut milk for dairy-free (or whole milk)
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil or butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Combine and whisk 6-8 min over med low heat. Do the plate test (pictured above) to make sure it's ready. Before you begin making the sauce, place a plate in the fridge. To test the caramel sauce, spoon some onto the cold plate and run your finger through it. If the caramel stays separated, then it's done! No thermometer needed. Refrigerate to thicken. It may become a little crystallized upon thickening; simply stir before using. Put it through the canning process to store it at room temp or to give away for some handmade holiday gifts.

To package it as a pretty handmade gift, use these jelly jars and chocolate-brown ribbon.

*Add in some pumpkin pie spice for pumpkin salted caramel sauce, or even better - bourbon! Serve it over your favorite fall dessert or a big bowl of ice cream.
