Soothe & Hydrate: DIY Yoghurt Avocado Facial Mask

/, Rosacea/Soothe & Hydrate: DIY Yoghurt Avocado Facial Mask

creamy, calming yoghurt!

The warm summer temperatures can aggravate skin inflammation.  This is because the season has Pitta qualities – fire energy in Ayurveda (heat, sun etc.) – which triggers Pitta skin conditions such as rashes, redness, rosacea and sensitivity.  One soothing antidote to this is to perform a calming treatment mask made up of plain yoghurt, avocado and a sprinkle of turmeric.  This is one of my fav ways to combat irritation because it has a simple ingredient list and is incredibly easy to do!

Ingredients
2 tablespoons of plain, organic yoghurt
¼ of a small avocado
optional: ¼ teaspoon of turmeric spice

anti-inflam avocado - yum!

anti-inflam avocado – yum!

Benefits
Yoghurt pacifies Pitta both topically and internally as it is made up of the combination of restoring fat particles suspended in cooling water.  It also contains good, live bacteria, aiding skin with inflamed blemishes.  Avocado is full of omega fatty acids, which also have anti-inflammatory properties.  This buttery treasure is a common beautycare ingredient for nourishing and healing sensitive skin.  If your skin is feeling especially irritated, you can charge this mask with soothing turmeric.  This spice, also known as curcumin, is an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial.  Though turmeric is bright yellow in color and can have a tinting effect on the skin.  If you are worried about this, be sure to stick to the one quarter teaspoon measurement.

Bright yellow turmeric spice – soothing and clarifying

Directions
This mask is so so easy to make!  Simply mix the yoghurt and avocado using a fork to mash the avocado.  Do so until its a smooth texture, then mix in the turmeric.  When the mixture is uniform in color, apply it to clean skin.  Let this treatment sit for 30 minutes.  Rinse with tepid water and enjoy, soft, moist, calm skin!
