#womensmarch#womenAREpowerful#sisterhood I've never understood how being a woman could be so difficult until I started working in the corporate world. Once I owned my own business I never imagined the unfair treatment would continue, but oh it did! Till this day I have meetings where men (& unfortunately sometimes other women) will not make me eye contact with me and stare straight at any males in the office, even while I'm talking. They brush of my questions and sometimes ignore me, It is utterly disrespectful. It took me some time to be able to demand respect, so now I always lean in and say "I'm signing your checks, so you need to sell me on you, not anyone else" which may sound harsh, but it works. It's important as women to be strong, to be bold, and most importantly support each other. As women today we have more demands on us than ever before, and by supporting each other, everything is possible! Thank you to all my wonderful Instagram family for all of your support!
DIY Turmeric face mask! Great for acne and dark circles!
Turmeric has amazing antioxidant properties! It reduces inflammation and redness, promotes skin healing, and softens lines and wrinkles.
Here’s the recipe for this Amazing ACNE fighter:
1 teaspoon of turmeric 1 teaspoon of raw organic honey 1 teaspoon of natural yoghurt
1 teaspoon of lemon juice-optional (great for lightening the skin and fighting oil)
Put all the ingredients into a small bowl & mix together well. You can adjust the amount of the yogurt you use to make the thickness as you like but make sure it’s a firm paste that will stick to your face. Turmeric is a dye and it can stain anything, so you don’t want it dripping off your face. Apply the mask evenly all over your face! Let the mask dry on your face for 20 minutes and then wash it off with cool water. Dry your face gently with a face towel. You can repeat this mask ever few weeks.
The only side effect is that turmeric will turn your skin a little yellow since it is a dye but that can be cleared using a cotton pad and facial toner.
Turmeric is a good antioxidant, and an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial agent. Honey is a great moisturizer & yogurt is a great exfoliator! #DIY#acne
