and it was all yellow

This homemade face mask is dying loads of people's faces yellow

Oompa loompa doopity doo.

OH, THE LENGTHS some of us will go to achieve soft, luminous skin.

The latest beauty trend sweeping the internet? Homemade turmeric face masks. (Yes, that turmeric. You know, that spice that dyes everything yellow?)

People are mixing turmeric with water (or, in some cases, natural yoghurt), making a bright yellow mask and slathering it all over their faces.

And now people are trying the masks out to see if they live up to the hype

Sure, their skin is soft…

But they look like someone straight out of The Simpsons
