Turmeric, the yellow and powerful spice in the kitchen has the topmost place for treating and preventing many diseases.  It has also secured its place in cosmetic also. For more than 1000 years, women use it as a skin tone enhancer and for other skin benefits. If you want an acne free skin, glowing skin, wrinkle-free skin, turmeric face mask is the best answer for all the skin problems. Turmeric face mask is the ultimate herb for your beautiful skin.

Turmeric (Curcuma longa), a commonly used spice throughout the world, has been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-neoplastic properties. Growing evidence shows that an active component of turmeric, curcumin, may be used medically to treat a variety of dermatologic diseases. This systematic review was conducted to examine the evidence for the use of both topical and ingested turmeric/curcumin to modulate skin health and function. 

Skin conditions examined include acne, alopecia, atopic dermatitis, facial photoaging, oral lichen planus, pruritus, psoriasis, radiodermatitis, and vitiligo. Ten studies noted statistically significant improvement in skin disease severity in the turmeric/curcumin treatment groups compared with control groups. Overall, there is early evidence that turmeric/curcumin products and supplements, both oral and topical, may provide therapeutic benefits for skin health. (Source)

  • Organic raw honey helps to clarify, hydrate and nourish skin and keep pores clear and clean.
  • Yogurt contains the lactic acid that moisturizes and nourishes dry skin. Zinc component present in yogurt slows down the aging process and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.

 NOTES

  • Turmeric when mixed with natural oils, it forms a mask that is more effective face mask that penetrates deep into the skin for a long-lasting effect. Castor oil, extra virgin olive oil etc are some of the best natural oils to use.
  • Do not go outside while wearing the mask. The juice in citrus fruits can react with UV light to cause photodermatitis, a painful condition resulting in a rash, blisters or scaly skin.
  • Always apply the mask after cleansing your face.
  • Does turmeric lighten skin permanently? Natural skin whitening requires patience and consistency for a long-lasting outcome. It may take two to three month for a permanent outcome.

Turmeric has many different benefits and it is called ‘Holy Powder’ because of this. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help to clear the dark circles. It doesn’t just remove the dark circles; it also makes the skin around the eyes, smooth and soft.

      Hi Rehana, I can understand that having an oily skin can be irritating. You can use a face mask made up of charcoal. In place of water, you can use apple cider vinegar. This can help you to minimize your skin pores and regulate sebaceous gland that secretes oil. Here is the recipe. Summer Healing Charcoal Face Mask For All Skin Woes
      For wrinkle, you can use rosehip seed oil to minimize your forehead wrinkles. Apply it twice a day on a cleansed face. Do let me know about the progress you make. You can find more about rosehip oil here.

      Hi Jane, you can use fresh turmeric with yogurt (Not with milk, milk may cause acne) or orange peel powder with yogurt. This will exfoliate your dead cells and will give you a bright and glowing skin. This will also reduce your pimples and blackheads as well. Let me know if you have any other question.

      Hi Jerick, Turmeric is one of the best options to clear your complexion. Just make a paste of turmeric, yogurt, and gram flour as per your requirement and scrub it on your whole body for 5-10 minutes. Leave the mask for another 15 minutes on your body or face and wash it off. This will help you to remove dead cells and brighten your skin.

      Or
      you can use Baking Soda Scrub to solve your problems. Just Click the link below to get full details and recipe.
