When it comes to flawless, glowing skin, Indian actress/producer Priyanka Chopra has got it all going on. And, she’s now revealed the exact DIY facial mask recipe she loves to use – so you can get in on her beauty secrets, too.
"I use a mask called ubtan. It's not for sensitive skin, but I use this on my face as well: It's basically yogurt, a little lemon, a pinch of turmeric powder, and flour,” Priyanka says in an interview with Women’s Health US.
“You put it on your body and scrub it off like an exfoliant. Lighter skin should be careful because turmeric can stain your skin, but I've always found it very healing, especially after a day in the sun,” the former Miss World explains.
How easy is that?! Best of all, you’re likely to find these inexpensive grocery store ingredients already in your kitchen at home.
We can see why Priyanka loves these ingredients. Turmeric is currently trending in a big way in the beauty world thanks to its impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Meanwhile, yoghurt has long been a staple in homemade masks due to it being a natural source of lactic acid which sweeps away dead surface skin cells.
If you’d prefer some readily-prepared options, we’ve also got some suggestions...
For something with turmeric, Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque is a great option that calms and renews the skin. Or, if you'd like to treat your skin to some yogurt, we love Korres Hydra-Biome™ Probiotic SuperDose Face Mask which contains real Greek yoghurt to hydrate and re-energise stressed skin.
