Some years ago, a young nurse whom I know, of Yemenite origin, told me that older women of her ethnic background revealed a beauty secret handed down for generations. For problem skin, mix curry with honey and spread over clean, washed skin and let it stay there for at least one hour. The mixture can calm inflammation such as acne of several varieties and it leaves skin with a healthy glow.
I grated fresh curry and added honey; stirred it thoroughly with a spoon; covered the bowl with a saucer and let it sit for 2 hours, allowing the components to blend thoroughly.
While sitting with the mask, I recommend tucking a towel or other protector into the neckline of your clothing so as to protect it, since the honey will drip. Wash it off gently and thoroughly. If you use a washcloth, it will color it yellow so you might prefer a disposable towel.
My skin is firmer, supple and smooth. After thorough but gentle cleansing, I applied night cream. I wonder what my skin will be like tomorrow.
