Turmeric Face Mask For Skin Blemishes

Turmeric Face Mask: Turmeric is best known for its use in curry powder but it has many medicinal and cosmetic uses in eastern countries.  In Asia, women use turmeric in face masks to help fight acne and other skin blemishes. In addition, it can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and reduce skin discolouration to even out skin tones.  As a young child, I was a very clumsy kid and accumulate plenty of scars on my legs.  By applying fresh turmeric, my mom was able to lighten up the scars and even make them disappear completely.  Nowadays, turmeric is a valuable part of my skincare routine. I use fresh turmeric as well as powder form.  I try to buy organic turmeric powder whenever possible since it is healthier and more convenient.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipes

There are a lot of skincare products out there that claim to erase dark spot and help wrinkles but they utilize harsh chemicals and preservative that is more detrimental than beneficial.  A better, more effective, natural, and inexpensive way is by making your own turmeric masks. Below are 5 turmeric face mask recipes that I have personally made and used and have had great results with.

For all these recipes:

  1. Mix ingredients into a smooth paste.
  2. Apply it on your face and leave for 20 minutes or as long as you can for a beneficial effect on your skin (you can leave it overnight in some cases).
  3. Rinse it off with cold or warm water.

Turmeric, Manuka Honey, and Lime

This face mask is for dry skin and dark spots (acne scars or pimple scars). The Manuka honey is beneficial and healing for skin that is dry since it is a natural humectant, putting moisture into the skin by enhancing skin elasticity and cell regeneration.

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Manuka Honey
  • 2 teaspoons of lime or lemon juice

Turmeric, Coconut Oil, and Lemon

Coconut oil is great for nourishing and hydrating the skin. This mask will leave your skin smooth, soft, and glowing.

  • 2 teaspoons of turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoons of lime or lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

Turmeric and Lime Juice

This mask is good for leaving overnight if you want an optimal result.  Put a towel on your pillow so you won’t stain the pillowcase. Once you wake up you can wash your face.

Turmeric and Rose Water

If you want to feel luxurious and have a spa night this mask is perfect, also without the lime juice, you won’t feel the burning sensation.

  • 1 teaspoon of rose water

Turmeric and Charcoal

Detoxing is not only for your body but your skin needs to detox too.  In Japan, they use activated charcoal to detox the skin and body.  If you have blackheads you can use this activated charcoal powder and turmeric mask for the best results.
