What are the benefits of the ingredients in this mask?
Although the recipe doesn’t contain a lot of ingredients, the few ingredients it does include offer a number of health and beauty benefits for your skin. Green tea is full of antioxidants, which slow premature aging and the appearance of wrinkles.
Turmeric is a great skincare ingredient, especially if you have oily skin or are looking to eliminate spots or acne scars. This powder comes from the root of a plant that is prevalent in India and is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. As a component of this mask, it will help even out skin tone.
When the spice is combined with vitamin C, in this case the lemon, the blend will reveal a softer, more radiant face. Finally, yogurt acts as a moisturizer and softens the skin.
