Removing Eye Darkness with Turmeric

I’m going to show you how to remove blackness from around your eyes, making a homemade mask inspired by my trip to India. Turmeric has been used for centuries in southeast Asia for its skin brightening properties. This facial mask will brighten skin and make your face glow.

You’re going to need

  •  two tablespoons milk
  • two tablespoons chickpea powder
  •  one teaspoon turmeric
  • bowl

The first thing you want to do is, scoop one teaspoon of turmeric, two teaspoons of chickpea flour and two tablespoons of milk. Now, you’re going to mix it together and here is your amazing eye cream.

Now, with your ring finger, you want to apply to your eye area. The reason I use my ring finger, is because it’s the most sensitive finger that you have, it’s going to be the softest gentle touch.

You’re going to leave it on for 20 minutes and that’s it, just rinse off with warm water. You’re going to see incredible results. I highly suggest you do this before you go to bed, because it does leave a little bit of a yellow look to it. People in India use it all over their face, body or just on the eye area.

Ecuador- Search for Beauty Part 2

She answered that women there don’t wear makeup; they use natural resources to maintain their beauty. They only wear makeup during ceremonial events that take place within their tribes. I asked her to elaborate more on these celebrations.

She is from Playas De Cuyabeno: a Quechua community that settled inside the Cuyabeno Reserve. Her main language is Runa Simi, which means the language of the people. By day, they manufacture handicrafts that include spears, baskets and ushankas for tourists and for their own personal use.  By night, they rely on the bright night skies for light and use very limited electricity.

I fell in love with the night skies.  On my third night there, as I watched the sunset at Laguna Grande, it dawned on me that this was one of the most important moments of my life. It was a sensation of beauty deriving from my mind to the horizon of the endless rainforest. In my personal search, I’ve watched the sunsets from many different places in the world, but this one was different. This one was pure beauty. It was as if the world had ended and all that existed was this body of water, the speedboat, and us: the 8 tourists. As we sat there in a moment of silence, gazing at the night sky, the memory of my first interaction with a shaman floated into my thoughts.

Earlier in the week, I traveled by boat for an hour and a half down the river to an indigenous Siona community. I interacted with them and learned about their traditions and customs. We visited a shaman that shared with us his secrets and ancestral knowledge of shamanism. I remembered seeing bracelets for sale in the village. “Is that your work?” She said, “It’s the work of many women who live in the tribe”.
