My weekly masking ritual to me is not just about taking care of my skin, but it is about taking care of myself. I find it hard to take the time to treat myself and decompress properly. Masking is all about treating and nourishing yourself. Every week, several times a week.
Since eating an anti-inflammatory diet is key to overall good health and achieving that healthy glow, I figured it couldn't hurt to try and get more turmeric into my diet. I have become creative at incorporating it into various recipes.
My favorite at the moment is this soothing Golden Turmeric Tea that I adapted from Heidi Swanson's recipe. It's important that the recipe includes both fat and the black pepper because both of these help your body to better absorb the curcuminoids. I have it at night a few times a week and love it so much that I wanted to share!
