KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

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.




INGREDIENTS
Blend thoroughly and apply with a face mask brush. Leave on for 10-15 minutes then rinse. Please test on a small area of skin to ensure you aren't allergic, and take caution that turmeric can stain very easily. We have a plastic bathroom sink vs. porcelain, for example, and it unfortunately stained it yellow. Next time, I'll wash this mask off in the shower or our stainless steel kitchen sink. And don't worry if you look like an Umpa-Lumpa after rinsing. Simply follow the mask with an oil-free facial cleanser. I followed my mask up with a charcoal facial cleansing bar, and it eliminated any residue from the turmeric.

Which would you use for your own DIY turmeric face mask - the oil, yogurt, or honey? Let me know in the comments below!

And for those of you who would much rather buy than DIY, you can shop these great Turmeric Face Masks.
