The ingredients are simple:
- Turmeric powder 1tbspn
- Cooling powder 1tbspn
- Honey or Coconut Oil (optional) 1tbspn
Turmeric powder is high in antioxidants that slow down the cell damage. It helps to reduce the inflammation and pigmentation and even out the skin tone.
I’m using pure turmeric powder imported from India. This is easily available at Brickfields.
Price within 3-4 MYR.
This Chinese style cooling powder is made out of rice flour which is used by many women on old days. Rice flour helps to soothe the skin and releases muscle stress which eventually inhibits the production of melanin in the skin.
I’m using rice clay which I bought from a Chinese shop. You can buy this at any Chinese or Indian groceries shop.
Price within 1-2 MYR.
Honey and/or Coconut Oil
Honey is anti bacterial and helps to moisture the skin. It also helps to reduce the dark marks.
Coconut oil is natural moisturiser and cleanser. It is a best remedy for a dry skin.
I’m using dark wild honey because of its high content of nutrient. You can buy this around PJ old town or Old klang areas. (*look for a portable seller or Chinese shops)
Price within 25-30 MYR per bottle.
Parachute coconut oil is easily available at Indian groceries shops.
Price within 2-3 MYR per small bottle.
- Mix the turmeric and cooling powder in a small bowl.
- Pour drops of water until you get a paste. Make sure it’s not too watery. If yes, add extra turmeric or cooling powder to make a balance.
- Finally, add drops of honey and/or coconut oil and mix it well.
How to Apply
Make sure you have cleaned and removed your make ups. Apply the paste slowly steps by steps unto to your wet face. Avoid putting surrounding your eyes and mouth areas. Leave it or take a nap for 15 minutes. The paste soothes the muscles and promotes sleep. Trust me, you will be feeling better after taking this 15 minutes nap. Then, wash it off. Pat your skin with towel and enjoy your revitalised skin.
Reminder: Please do not leave more than 15-20 minutes especially once it’s dried. The dried paste cracks and creates wrinkles.
